    handlebars

    I would like to move the handle position up and back about an inch each way on my K1300GT. I have already tried the Suburban bar changes and they are not enough. Does anyone make any other bar mods?

    Post a picture please. I would like to see how the bars are now positioned.

    Question

    Those things put the bars at almost the exact same place as the Suburban pieces. I wonder if the aluminum mount would be over stressed if I mount both of those things on piggybacked? What do you think?

    Not sure about the stresses, but you'll most likely have trouble with the lines and cables being too short.

    If you mount them piggyback you will have to change to longer cables.
