Default If you get cycle world magazine they do a review of them in the most current issue.

Maybe that will help you out.

I use Helibars on my Ducati ST4 and have been quite happy with them.



The fit and finish is excellent and it makes the bike all-day comfortable.

Cycle World, I beleive just did a story on these and said basically that the kit is good, if pricey.



They did have some issues with the hardware, but overall, they liked them.



Having seen a few sets I can tell you this:

The directions suck. Moving the ignition cyclinder is a pain, but doable. USe the shop manual to get the torque right.



And, buy a set a of bar end weights, it will make a huge differance in vibes.



A local guy has a set on an R-1 another on an older Fireblade. Bith really like them.

Hmmm...the question was does anyone have experience with similar products and the Moronic Stealth Moderator changed the answer to off topic.



I suppose a John Kerry (I thought it used to be Wesley Clark that was the second coming) link might be more appropriate.

Thanks for the scoop on "Speigler" I was looking at the Heli and also Convertibars for my gixxer now I know where to go.

I hate the sore wrists and usually have a passenger so it will also be easier for them to hold on with out having to lean forward themselves. "I must be getting old but still like to have some fun "

Go for it. I installed a Speigler kit on my Honda F4 streetfighter about a year ago. They are close to perfect, excellent fit & finish and a riding position that is a good compromise for both high and low speed.

Helibars transformed my '98 R1 from a wrist-agony generator after about 40 miles, into a machine upon which I can do 300+ mile days.

Default Question

Do these kits require replacing any of the brake, throttle, or clutch lines?

Why don't you trade-in your ZX12R for a ZRX1200R? Plenty of torque, front end comes up, comfortable riding position. I love mine. Check out www.zrxoa.com. - Joe
