I put Rox risers on mine -- and pulled them rearwards more than up. But -- the cables still fit through the same space as they exit the top of the triple tree.
I can't remember how much effort it all was. I think I was in there a couple of times, but the last was a stage zero reroute to make it all center better (no tension change as the bar went lock to lock). That was after the install of the ICG air cleaner.

I think you can make it all fit. You will be taking the air box off, so be prepared (nothing that difficult).

Ta mate, I'm running the modified airbox too. Makes this stuff a lot more accessible, albeit a bit sticky. Kinda like an old girlfriend I had.

I went to the mechanic today where i bought the RC high from. We installed the bars but the brake and throttle cables were really tight.
We rerouted the brake cable outside the plastic housing, on the right of the right fork tube (maybe a picture is better :lol: ) a bit ugly but works.
Then we removed the tank and tried to reroute the throttle cables, through the right opening of the frame (default is left) in order to gain some cm. we actually gained a lot but then the cables had big curvature which caused some throttle change when we were turning the handlebars full right. We left it that way because it was already late. We will change that during the week.

Does anyone with RC HIGH or another high/wide bar can post a picture of his rerouting paths? It would be really helpful!!!
Thanks

always a fun time when routing hoses and cables.
I put Rox risers on mine. Will try to snap a couple pics the next couple of days. Unsure if I have any of the routing when I installed the ICG airbox and all the other goodies.

I found some pics of my Rox install. I had to reroute the front brake hose to the right side of the top triple tree, but didn't do anything else at that time.
At the aircleaner install I rerouted the throttle cables. Still to be determined if I have any pics of that (and/or get as installed at finish pics).

I turned me rizers round on Friday, big difference. My arms are always bent now, seem to move about a bit more relaxed.

Re-routed the throttle cables last night.

Mine fed under a 'bridge' section of the frame just forward and under the ECU. Re-routed them above that bridge and slightly to the left. Perfect new for the RC's. Freed about about 20mm of cable, which is exactly what I needed.

Unhooking the cable ends was a complete and utter bitch of a job.
