I got my hands on a set of Rox Risers and Universal Solex handlebar with the pod dash panel. I have to say Rox products are top notch quality. The installation was pretty straight forward and simple just a little time consuming in being that Kawie has plenty of bolts to remove. Total time was about 30-45 minutes but I took my time. The only problem I had which really isn't is that the dash panel needs the rubber spacers from the stock pod and doesn't tell you so, it just takes you a few minutes to look it over and see that you need them and you swap them. You will see what I mean by my pic. The ability to be able to adjust your seating position is a great advantage especially on long rides. The wider handlebar makes steering much easier, you will see this as soon as you drive on a hard surface. I went for ride with the family this weekend and I had to drive much slower and the better seating position and wider bars really were much more comfortable and easier on the upper body. This is a great addition to your quad, total cost is under $200.

Nice review! I contacted Ryan, at Rox, and they believe that the dash mount will work for Prairie's as well! I may well give the risers a try with a set of Fast Flexx bars. $$ will decide, but I am more sold, than ever, after reading your review.

Does the dash hit anything when you trun the bars? It looks like it is kind of low. I have a set of flexx bars, an realy want to mount them on my 650I.

looks great python

I ran into a slight problem with the K&N airfilter. The filter is a touch taller then stock and it makes it difficult to remove. There doesn't seem to be an issue with the TwinAir I have. So I used 3 washers to raise my dash panal up a notch and that worked great. I am going to contact Ryan at Rox to let him know.More then likely this isn't a known issue.

With my dash panel I had to bend it up about 10 degrees or so to clear the EHS lid no biggie. When I was in my backyard giving at thrashing, I discovered that I needed to put some more ass behind the bolts holding on the risers. Nothing says exciting like letteing the bike down form a wheelie and the bars keep on going, got my attention real quick.
