    R1200ST bar risers/handlebars

    I have an R1200St with Verholen risers, but need even more handlebar relief due to carpal-tunnel. I need something that brings the bars back, like the old K1200RS and R1100RS models used to have. I have considered the LSL conversion but would like to see a picture of the setup on the R1200ST before dropping the big bucks. Anybody got any suggestions or maybe a picture of the LSL bars on an R1200ST? Thanks.

    Semper_Fi who responds to the bmwsporttouring link below has info on what you are asking about. His wife have the kit you mention on her ST. I would send him an e-mail.

    Thanks, Briana,

    I already have the Verholen risers, but they still don't provide enough relief. I think the LSL bars might, but want to see a picture or hear from someone who has used them.

    You've decided to keep the bike, for now? I saw your ad in ADV.

    ...I'm considering an ST. I actually make barbacks f the R1100S.
    What's available out there for the ST besides the Verholens?
    What's an LSL?
    If I get this bike I may be compelled to design a set....

    Brian - thanks

    What I ended up doing was putting on a AC Schnitzer pull back bars.

    It replaces the triple tree so you can out on regualr pull back bars with the additons of some handlebar risers - this effectively pulled up and back the bars well over 3 inches from the Verholen setup

    Any interest PM me

    I am under the impression...

    that the new AC Schnitzer fork will accommodate other handlebars besides the one that it ships with. That way you can keep buying new bars endlessly looking for the perfect fit!
