Ac Schnitzer or Helibars

Even though I'm waiting on the 2017 model, I've been researching handlebars. I'm 48, 5'11 220 lbs. I've had multiple back surgeries, so I need a bit of a "lift" to keep me comfortable. The way to 2016 sits, its just a bit too far over. My pain is in my thoracic region (between shoulder blades)Thoughts? The Schnitzers are crazy expensive vs. the Helibars.

F700GS.
or
lower rear sets, a flatter seat like Sargent seats. heli's are flatter not so much higher, but help a little.

I have a broken back as well, gotta exercise more to help it man.

The best to you brother.

Hope you find a solution.

Helis are great and are both higher and further back. With HP foot rests adjusted down you almost have the same body position as a K1300. Check cycloergo.com

Smile LSL bars, hockey puck

These bars are great re height, setback and bar connection. Raise the front of your seat by placing a 3/4" riser under the front rubber mounts (a hint from Marcel Irnie racing).

Check out the R version S1000. It could be a much better fit for you.

not a chance on the R version.... Reliving my youth, and I'm going with the RR. Below is a link to the AC's. Going to ride it for a while then try and figure out what will work best.

Makes no sense. Why would you put those bars on an RR but say no way on an R? When you butcher the bike with those bars you've already moved away from an RR and stepped into the realm of a naked. Just buy the R or a Tuono.

You rode a sport bike equipped with Helibars in your youth?
