Riders with Heli Bars

Installed a set of heli bars, i like the bars very much but notice a slight more vibration & after a 100 mi ride when you slap your hands together pins a needles up your forearms ( best way to explain ) I had this on my GSXR 750 but never on my 1000RR. Has anyone experienced this and/or modified the bars with more weight?

Hi ,
I have just installed heli bars and rizoma grips on my CBR. So far I love them and have no complaints. I can not say there is more vibration with the new bars. Also I just purchased the CBR and havent put a lot of miles on the bike.

Nope. Less numbness and better ergonomics since the helibars and Corbin seat...

Those bars look pretty sweet. I've been looking into the motivation and hmp weighted barends. They might help you out a lot.

mrtsunami20 - shouldn't affect handling at all as they don't do anything to the front end geometry.

For those that have them installed, do they have a hole so they can be fixed to the triple clamp like the OE clip-ons? Also, how is the distance between the bars and the tank now - can you go lock to lock without smashing your hands?

They are not pined like stock so you can set them any amount of clearance you want

Have heli's - with a throttle meister, and the heavy
ends weights and this seems to have less vibes than

I also have a set of Johar Superbike Foam Grips

These are pretty big around, but you can sand
the foam to your size, or if you have heated grips,
can sand the throttle side to the same size as the
clutch side grip.

No issues with hitting anything at lock, and only
thing is the heli bars are wider than stock, and
seems like you have less room for the lever pedestals,
switch brackets, etc - so found that placing everything
on the bars was a bit of a pain...

I have my throttle cables flipped over though, as the
stockers would not reach cleanly.

Live each day like it is your last, like you will never get another chance...

One day it will be, and you won't.
