I have the wonderful 2 inch rubber loaded vibe dampened Rox risers./
While recently chasing wire rubs and gremlins, and I have all the crap off my bike, with the bike up on a bike jack, (wheels off ground) I made an observation, when you slowly rotate the steering back and forth (like you are turning left and right) you will see that the "rise" also puts stress on the bits of the harness that run up to the ignition as well.
Yes, you can re-route to cover the throttle, etc., but i overlooked the potential stress on the ignition harness.
You have to have your plastics off, tank off, etc., to fully appreciate the oversight (ON MY PART).
I loved the end result from my Rox anti vibes, I truly did.... but I am going back to stock until I figure out where the wiring gremlins are "sleeping" and waiting for me.
i may have pulled something... and it aint the doo hickey..
