    R1200GS Handlebars

    I would like a different shape handlebar for my 2016 R1200GS. Anyone know who might be making bars to fit?

    You might try Flanders or Pro Taper. The issue will be whether you can find the correct metric diameter rather than the US 7/8" and 1" stuff.

    Check out other BMW R1200 models. There are several heights, and reaches within the model lines that should be adaptable to your model.

    Have you tried an adjustable riser such as the one from Rox?

    I put a set of Helibars on my 2016 GSA. They are adjustable in several directions. They are expensive, but get the job done.

    One word of caution though, installing then eliminates the use of a tank bag if you pull them too far back. They are high quality.

    I looked on the Helibar site and found no products that are made to fit an R1200GSLC. What did you use?

    Interesting, I purchased them directly from Helibars off their website. Try giving them a call.

    I don't remember the name of the bars, but Simon from 2 Ride the World wrote about some he put on his new GS. Look in this months ON.
