Default Heli bars installed

I just installed a set of Heli bars bars on my S1000RR and it made a world of difference on my wrists and overall comfort. I'm still waiting on my grip puppies should be here by next Wednesday. If you looking for a more comfortable and upright position you can't go wrong with them I'm completely in love with the bike now. Here is pic of them installed.

Good deal! I've been thinking about those.....how difficult were they to install?? Do you use the original cables, etc?

I had them installed by a dealer. They charged me 1 Hour labor and said it was a cut and dry procedure no problems encountered at all. I'm telling you once you put them on you'll wonder how you ever did it without them.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you order them from?

The price you see on the box is not the price I paid. I paid 319.99 just like everyone else. I assure I would of paid double that if I knew how good they worked. I always put them on my bikes when applicable.

I have just fitted mine as well, unfortunately I have pulled a R shoulder muscle so I have only had a short ride on which the pain from the shoulder masked just about everything else............bollox.

Fitting was straight forward and everything lined up and fitted nicely, the only thing I might try and alter is the lever angle, I may try andget them a little further pointing down, the RH will involve loosening the brake line off the master cylinder, and the LH is going to involve a dremel as the clutch micro switch hits the helibars, but to be fair I do like my levers pointing down more than most people.

The switchgear on the RH side is a bit fiddly to get off and you really need a screwdriver type T8 torx, I found the T8 from my 1/4 drive snap on stuff was'nt long enough, cover the clocks with a good rag before fitting the bars as the top triple ends up close to them.

A really nice well engineered product, all std cables are retained

MY levers fit really good without the use of a dremmell. I would call Heli first before cutting and grinding into anything. When I spoke to them their was no reason for cutting or grinding if so your doing something wrong. My bars fit perfect. please call before making any hasty decisions to cut they will walk you through it.

Honestly...I can't tell a thing from that first pic. Great report, though, thanks!
