Roaring Toyz 1 inch risers

I am 6ft & installed the Roaring Toyz 1 inch risers. (took 10 minutes) and I could not be happier! It also extends the reach 1/2 inch wider.
I love them & my riding angle is perfect!
I recommend anyone to try these & if you do not like them then not much $ wasted

I may try these. I'm not all about the super sport feel. If I wanted a super sport feel, I would've bought the 600.

Other than torque specs, was there any unique tools used for install like lube or locking paste?

tools used was a torque wrench to get the bolts done up correctly

to undo to them i used a ratchet

i also used some hex socket bits that fit the bolt as well as the ratchet/torque wrench

as i said in the videos dont use blue loctite, medium strength, its over kill. use the low strength 222 stuff that’s all you need

and that’s is it for tools needed:D

For those of you who want to buy these, i emailed the guys in the USA selling these & showed them a link to this page & asked if we could get a discount or something for us all, and here is the reply i got






Hi again. Thanks so much for providing that for me. It's great to see customers enjoying our products. I could possible do some type of discounted rate for forum members, but the orders would have to be placed over the phone as I'm not able to modify the prices on the eBay listings. If you ever decide to, or if anyone asks, feel free to give us a call at 773-413-8444. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks again, and have a great day.

cruizin: did you notice any difference in vibration with these risers?

I installed them today and went out for a ride and there was noticeably more vibration. So much that after riding my hands were shaking lol

I torqued everything spec and couldn't think of what could have gone wrong. I'm going to try undoing them tomorrow to see whether the vibration goes away.

you could get the front wheel balance checked. seems odd your getting vibration with the bar risers fitted.you could also try getting an old car tube and trim a piece so that the tube sits on top of the triple clamp first, then put the bar riser & then bolt it all down & see if that helps

I took the bike with no risers out for a normal freeway ride and it was much better. At this point I looks like I won't be able to use the risers sadly, because it's really much easier on my back with the more upright position :(

It's possible that it's due to my rising position. With no risers, I guess I grip the handlebar more with my palm which has more cushion from the gloves. With risers, perhaps I grip it more with my fingers which is more susceptible to vibrations. Not sure, just speculating here.

Another thing I noticed is that, with risers, the front brake line is 100% tight with full lock to the left, and generally quite tight. Bare in mind I have the SE ABS model which has different brake line setup than stock. Again, no conclusive answer here but just guessing.

i figured out why your brake line is 100% tight and mine is not

the brake line your talking about is the line from the master cylinder back down over the forks to the junction on the frame


mine is *NOT* tight & i bet i know the reason why mine is not tight & yours is

if you look at the frame at the front of the bike where the triple clamp is, and the wires/hoses go back thru a small metal rectangular loop. that loop is what is causing your brake like to go tight.

on mine the metal loop is pressed back pretty close to the frame and the brake line doesnt hit it

im willing to place bets that your metal loop is sitting out further then mine and the brake line is getting taught over it when pulled to the left

if your not sure what im typing, please say so & i will make a small video & show you what im on about
