Which size did you get?

Has anyone hit the track before and after putting Heli bars. Does it make a difference in handling?

I recently put them on my '09- could not be happier. I'm a big, tall guy- besides that I'm a mid40yearoldfart. Weight on my wrists made long rides unpleasant and the usual method of gripping the tank with my knees and supporting upper body with "core" muscles didn't make enough of a difference. Heli bars did the trick. Yesterday I made a 250 mile test ride which included some highway driving and seriously tight twisty mountain roads. The new bars passed the test with honours. On the highway the wind blast and the more upright position kept all the weight off my wrists, only the need for fuel made me stop. In the twisty bits i noticed no hint of diminished control and I was still comfortable even after several downhill, hard braking corners. At no time did I notice extra vibrations over the stock bars. I give them my highest recommendation. The only complaint? Now that I'm not noticing any discomfort on my wrists I've become more aware of the cramped feeling in my knees and legs. Hmmm, perhaps it's time for some Gilles rearsets...

I went a different route, but same vibration issue. I put the oem bar ends/weights in and much better.
