Clip-ons with a 2 inch rise

Does anyone have a line on such an item, so far google has not pointed me in the right direction.

Thanks
Rich

Helibars are the only thing I hear people talk about. I saw some on a bike at a local dealer that look way cooler than Helibars but damned if I could find a make on them. Might need to head back there and get a pic.

I have some 2" longer than normal Galfer brake lines that you'll need for that kind of rise. They will be up for sale cheap soon. PM me if you are interested.

The problem with clubmans is they usually place the controls too far forward and for street use, and tank clearance can be an issue with anything as wide as the 919's. If you are looking into HeliBars or Convertibars (assuming they have gotten the probate mess worked out) they will work, but they sure are proud of their product -- you can tell by the price!

Here's a good alternative:

This is an old image: I've worked out a much better routing for the clutch cable.
In the position shown they barely clear the tank at full lock and measure 24" to the ends of the grips. Of course they can be pushed further forward for a lower position, but that may go too far for the height or reach challenged. The point is there is considerable adjustability, and they come with an unlimited guarantee as regards adjustment -- if you can't find a position that suits you return the undamaged bars for a full refund, including shipping.

Can't do much better than that!

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Boy is my clutch slipping, thought I posted a reply yesterday and I guess I just previewed it then I got sidetracked. Anyway this is for my sons 919, says the clubmans just stretch him out too much and my stock set up is just too upright ( he means old man style ). For me it's very comfortable, these bones and ligaments will not tolerate that forward leaning position. Those days are long gone.

....... I dumped the stockers for the Renthal Ultra Lows ----- they really aren'y that low at all..... they're perfectly comfortable.

If you want some rise...... twisted throttle makes some handle bar risers....me personally, I'd just figure out how much rise you need and pick the right set of renthals.

Heres the link to TT.

Is that a NOS bottle attached to the swing arm? I think I see a fitting a line coming off the top of the Monster Bottle.

If you gotta have clip ons, these are adjustable rise. Apex adjustable clip-ons:

Apex Adjustable Riser Clip Ons from SportbikeTrackGear.com

Everyone else whose been looking for adjustability swears by the Thar bars though.

Yes that is an NOS bottle, the fellow my son bought it from was in the middle of an install and that's about as far as he got. The fitting just ended under the seat, he gave up and bought a BUSA. It did have a Power Commander on it though.
