* Required Fields


Provides a more upright, comfortable riding position by raising and retracting the original 28mm diameter tubular handlebar. No need to replace your handlebars - simply remove the original top clamp, place the riser between the handlebar and original bottom clamp, and install the replacement top clamp using included hardware. Barbacks increase handlebar height by 30mm (1.25") and move them back 22mm (1.0"), producing an overall handlebar displacement of 35.4mm (1.4") at a 45 degree angle from the original position.

When installed, there may be a slight gap between the bar riser and the top clamp. This gap allows the top clamps to be torque-tightened onto the bar riser to prevent the bar from spinning.

No change of control cables, wiring, or hoses is required for most motorcycle models, HOWEVER: Barbacks offer significant additional displacement of the handlebars and are more likely to require modification of cable/wiring/hose slack after installation than are standard handlebar risers.

The installer should always check for adequate cable/wiring/hose slack after installing any handlebar riser!

Simply put, the amount of cable slack varies on factory bikes even within a single model and year due to slight differences in the way the lines/cables are routed through the bike. While 99.9% of all bikes will not need adjustment of cables to install handlebar risers, you should ALWAYS check for adequate slack after installation.

Available in powdercoated silver (s) or black (b).

This riser will fit your bike if:

(1) Your bar mounts are symmetrical and parallel
(2) Your bars have a 28mm outer diameter
(3) You have two M8 (8mm-diameter holes with standard M8 thread pitch) threaded holes in each of your two bar mounts
(4) The distance between the two holes in a single bar mount is 30-37mm on center. The distance between the two bar mounts is not a factor.

Kit includes:
- barbacks (1 pair)
- top clamps (1 pair)
- four M8x30 screws

Review by tweak89
Love everything about my BMW F800GT, except...the rise/pullback of the stock risers. It's a little to much towards the sport side for what is touted as more of a tourer.

These were cake to install. Simply remove the stock riser "caps" and replace with these. Installation of the risers took all of ten minutes. One word of advice, specific to F800GT owners, you will need to re-route your throttle cable behind the triple tree. At full lock the throttle cable will actually engage. Also, in their infinite wisdom BMW re-designed the brake lines and how they attach. Instead of user friendly parts, they now have "hard wired" cables where there used to be straight shots or "Y" junctions. All that being said, you will have to unfasten the two blocks that are attached to the lower triple clamp to free up the brake line that runs from your bar to the ABS module. You can leave it free or fashion small extension bracket like I did (see photo). If you do not do this, the brake line will be under a bit of tension, which could potentially cause issues.

Now, back to the risers themselves, while 1" rise and 1.25" pullback doesn't sound like much, it's a huge difference in ride comfort. No more wrist fatigue on long rides! The other plus, IMO, is the looks of the risers. Most available for my bike are functional, but not visually appealing. I love that these look like they belong on the bike!

Highly recommended. (Posted on 7/31/15)
