    Replacement handlebar for k1300s 2009 ?

    Which handlebars should do you think qould be right for me?
    Dont want them so much up as i would like them moved back, would like them to be 20-30mm more towards the rear.
    Anything out there that will do this?

    You could try these. Angle them back towards you instead of up. I think thy have a 25mm step.

    Thank you for the tip!

    Know of any salvage/breakers where one can find a handlebarcarrier/top yoke/triple tree from a K1300R ?
    My googl-fu is weak and i can't find that part.

    K1300R bridge and Helibars as mentioned above are both great options. I installed Helibars last year on our K1300S and love them. If holding the bars with the first joint of your fingers feels comfortable then helibars are for you. In other words, you'll sit back about an inch or two at your shoulders. For me the Helibars eliminated some left elbow joint pain on long trips and more importantly make it much easier for me to get my feet on and off the pegs. At 6'5" and now 60 years old (when did THAT happen?) comfort is becoming more important but it has to look good.

    Yes, farkles MUST have look that makes people wonder if anything has been done, and if so, wondering if it was OEM equipment or not.

    Estethics is really important too me.

    I like to have my bars in the palm of my hand, will try to find a k13r bridge first and if that fails i might go with helibars.
    Going to research if also the k12r bridge is higher and fits the k13s as well. That will make it a little easier to source one i hope.

    still havent pulled the trigger on any solution. Searching around but can't find any information regarding measurements on the different ways one could go. So the risk is that one spends a lot of money but not getting it right.

    Would like not so much up as i would like to have the bars rearward.

    As previously mentioned, Helibars can be angled any way you might like. Although there are no guarantees in life, this could be one of the more flexible solutions for you.

    The helibars, is it only friction that holds them in place after torqing them down?
    Stock there is a extra wing with a bolt to keep them from rotating.

    Yup, just friction - and a couple hundred pounds/kilograms of clamping force.

    Question just for pure interest of knowledge. What is the max movement of the handlebars before throttlecable, clutchline and wire's need to be replaced for longer ones ?
