    2003 K1200GT - Handlebar setbacks

    Has anyone found a product for handlebar setbacks? I currently have a 50mm straight extender on my 2003 K1200GT. They make a 80mm extender with some cables that need to be changed for length, no big deal I guess.

    I also have seen a Z shaped extender but not much different getting more setback toward me. I sure would like to use a 2006's style like the first 3 pictures. Helibars are for another year. Same with Verholen riser bars. They don't fit 2003. Disappointing.

    The yellow picture is similar my 2003 handlebars. I want more position flexibility. I like this 2003 shape better than the 2006-upward.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Swallow hard, then order this along with the handlebar bend that suits your preferred riding position:

    Apparently I have lost sight on the big picture. Thanks Maximus.
