    Handle Bar Risers
    « on: 2018-02-09 05:43:47 »
    Has anyone fitted 'Helibars' handle bar risers to their R1200RT. ( http://www.mickhone.com.au/part/helibars/HR05046#contentArea )
    I have a 2007 model and looking at fitting them and they say on their website that the standard brake/clutch lines will work ...

    I've got a gut feeling that they will be short ... especially the brake line.

      I had very similar “Risers” fitted to our Hexhead. Although where not Helibars they gave the same amount of “lift” but without the rearward displacement. No problems with brake, clutch and other control lines and cables.

            For what I read on other sites, there may be a problem with turning the bars to the max and the brake/clutch reservoir is not at level.
            That could allow air in the system. I don't know, just something to think about.
