Best mod for tall guys!

Post  PeteN95 on Tue Aug 16, 2016 8:31 pm

I just put ROX 3.5" risers on my XR and my KTM trail bike and I can now ride standing up comfortably for the first time ever! I am 6'6" and always felt funny riding standing up, now I know why! I read somewhere that your bar to peg distance should be 1/2 your height. I checked mine and it wasn't even close. I first tried these on my 250 dirt bike and while it felt weird at first sitting down (ape hangers!), riding while standing suddenly felt right. It does take some re-routing to get the cables and wires to fit, but even with tall ATV bars I was able to get the stock stuff to work.
