That's a great deal! If you've been on the fence about doing this mod - do it! You won't be disappointed.

I got mine for $165. The sale price was the final push for me to do it. I do like them better than the stock bars.

Are the factory brake lines, cables and electrical long enough for these risers? Any modifications needed?
Everything fits, no mods needed.

So what is the advantage? I am 6' 1" when I stand up straight

There are two main advantages. First, the bars are straighter, so your fists aren't pointed outward when your riding - this is even more important if you stand up at all when you are riding. I also think the bars are a little wider (can't remember that for sure though).

Second, it allows you to place the bars/grips about 1" higher and 1" back, which makes a much bigger different than you would think.

its funny how opinions change when you become familiar with something, one of the reasons i wasnt interested in the grizzly a while back, was because i couldnt get past the handel bars, i thought they were too tall, and looked funny..... then i seen the aftermarket set ups, and i got the noticing, daaaayum, once u get rid of those silly grizzly bars and put on a after market set it totally changes the look of the bike, so then i got very interested in the grizzly with thoughts that an after market set of bars would be my very first purchase....... fast forward to the night i walked into my garage for the first time and seen my grizzly.... i actually like the regular grizzly bars i dont think it takes away from the look at all, and they dont seem to sweep up as high as they use to or something, i still love the look of the after market ones and if i ever did switch them up if would just be for a change of scenery or for a bit more functionality, But i no longer feel i have to change the bars to make it look good

I prefer the look of the stock bars by quite a bit. But if something makes you a better rider, and more comfortable, I don't care what it looks like. $165 is a good price, id I had the money this second they'd be in their way!

I hated the look and feel of the stock bars on my 12 , going to Roxx Risers and bars I found it much better I'd have them on my 16 if they would fit .

Are the stock bars on the 16 in about the same position as 15 & earlier?

That's tough for me to answer as it's been years since I sat on a machine with stock bars other than my 16 . But one would think they'd be close to the same . If it was not for that 3rd light those blue bars would be on my 16 .

So I take it they aren't as good as the rox setup, which is probably what i should have asked

YA I'd give up that 3rd light to have my Roxx set up back , I don't need or use that light .

Out of stock! SOB!

I do have a chance to do the setup, but with steel 7/8 fly bars for cheap. Anybody have thoughts on that?

Bummer man. I'm going off subject here, but did you have to create a new account or something? I saw your name earlier as a guest.

Yes, my account mysteriously vanished. CoToMo (I think that's right) had the same happen. Maybe even some more I thought I heard. So I stated a new account with the same username.

It all worked out good, I ordered gunmetal aero bars ($60) and black 5"risers for ($92). I think the gunmetal aero will look great with the matte silver. I may powdercoat the risers. I'll make the switch plate, I need one bigger than the one rox offers anyway. If these for work with my snorkels they will be for sale.

For anyone on a budget, rox has some old style (new) risers for $49.99 OBO, and you could get 7/8 aluminum fly bars ($38) or fly steel bars ($20) the crossbar would likely block the view of the speedo sitting down (thanks BDSNJ for the info on that) but for $70 at the most that's a minor inconvenience. After some research on bars I would only run the 7/8 aluminum for easy trail riding. These prices are all new items on ebay.
