    They do quite significantly alter the riding position, which in my experience put less weight on the wrists, strain on the neck and helped slow speed control.
    They are also completely plug-n-play so OEM compatible bar ends work and they are pre-drilled for switch gear.
    Depending on your riding style though, you “may” find it creates more strain on your inside wrist when hanging off. However, this does seem to depend on riding style and height

    Your input has only strengthened the argument for buy a set..pick RR up 7 Feb...then a long wait for good weather...give me time to put some nice add on,s...
    As for my riding style...mmm
    Not ridden a bike in Seven years.last bike was a Blade.. think the RR will be a totally Different Animal..
    THANK you Baz

    Re: Helibars

    I've just bought some as my wrist were shot after 100 miles, I guess because i'm not used to sport bikes coming from a lump like a GS.

    Grip with your legs they keep telling me ( I often forget to though )

    I plan on touring doing 400 mile rides so hoping these will help.
