1200GS Bar raisers
« on: February 25, 2009, 08:56:27 pm »
I Have an 06 1200GS to which I want to fit a set of bar raisers. I am of average height, thus I have to extend my arms to an almost staight position when seated, and would prefer a slightly elbow bent position. I have adjusted the std bars but dont seem to find a comfortable position. It seems a set of bar raisers could help with my problem, however I have a question or two that those of you who have raised your bars could help with:
1. I note 25mm, 30mm and 40mm raisers, how high can I go without having to lenghten any cables
2. The std bars meausre 28.6mm, thus denoting "fat bars" (I think), any suggestions on what brand is reputable. I would prefer someone using stainless steel bolts as I live at the coast.

Your comments would be appreciated

Check out the vendors here, lots of us sell bar raisers.
25mm should be fine unless you are above avarage height. :thumleft:
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

I can help out with 25 or 40 mm ones, and they come with SS bolts.
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.
