Question

hey guys and gals, gee i know i might be setting myself with this but.. anyone had experience with different bars for their sportbike. these bars are supposed to raise the height of bars to lessen the strain on rider.
I must be getting old or something but my back starts to ache after a few hours of riding. one of my buddies suggested that i try the aftermarket bars to raise the bars.
and dont anyone suggest a std or cruiser no offense meant .but no thanks.

Thanks

The idea is fine but you may not have enough clearance around the fairing to move them as much as you might like. I'd make sure to check that before to purchase.

An easy way to raise your bars is at www.zianet.com/genmar. A different kind of bar riser than helibars.
