    That's good to know. Were yours Gilles VarioBar2?
    If there is no issue I'll be ordering them before I get the bike.

    Is there anything I should look out for?

    Nothing fairly easy fit, the only effort is measuring and drilling the location holes for the handlebar clusters. also be careful undoing the little torx in the handlebar clusters. There's a hidden one on each side. J

    Hey guys, do I need to unplug the left fork leg wire to enable the yoke to come off?

    Re: Helibars

    What part of the wiring loom does it go through, is it a fairing off kind of job?

    Yes it is - you will need to remove the left middle section of the fairing to unplug the connector. It's also a good idea to remove the plastic cap on the fork top.

    I'm glad this has flagged up as I've been messing with my gilles all day and struggling to get clearance. I'm gathering I should get full lock either side?
    Am I best starting a new thread do you think?

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been in and out of hospital for the past month.

    they are basically stand off posts i.e male and female threaded spacers. See link to pictures below.
