Anyone installed 2010/2011 CB1000R handle bar?

Have any one installed the 2010/2011 CB1000R handle bar? It seems like it is a good option for the 919...

Go for it - off the top of my head I think they run a 22 mm bar (same as 919) - measure up the distance between the out clamps to ensure that area suits.

I thought they have the 28mm bar? Does the aluminum bar really reduce the vibration? How about between 22mm and 28mm? Which is better?

I received the bar, and looks great. I also ordered all bar end weights. Just waiting for the 28mm adapters.

The bar has pre drilled holes to accept the switches position pins, and they look in the same position as the stock bar.

Not cheap. I paid about $216 for all weights, bar ends, and the bar. But the gold tone matches late 919's brake calipers.

Installed this evening with LSL 25mm raiser adapters. The height is about the same as the stock, but riding on it feels I am on a big litter bike.
How to post photos? I had to drill one hole for the throttle switch, the light switch side line up with what's on the bar. Not a bad installation.

They look great! Too bad it's such an expensive mod I'd be all over it
