    Hi all,

    Last year I fitted handlebar risers on my VFR800 FiX (1998-2001 Pre VTec). These raise the stock handlebars by about 20mm.

    That helped with lowering wrist ache from a lot of town riding, but I think that a pair of higher bars might be a better option.

    I've seen the photos of Helibars, but are there any other alternatives and if so what's the differences between them?

    If anyone has a pair of helibars for sale for my model please let me know, including the cost of shipping to the UK.

    Regards, Tony

    The Heli-Bars have a set rise and rearward offset, the ones that are more adjustable are Converti-Bars and ones made by Gilles (sp?). The latter two allow for almost infinite rise and rearward offsetting.

    I have had Converti Bars on my 6th gen for a long time and love them.
