    Crap that sucks, well when you get it all taken care of give me a call and let me know how the trip went. The cell phone story alone is one I have to hear.
    Are you going to NERDS?

    Hey Ray,
    You back in town yet? I tried calling but it says your phone is out of service. Did you fall off the grid?

    Steve,
    I had a heck of a time getting the pins out too, but somehow I did it. I think I clamped the pin in a vice.... anyway, you still have that option.

    I put the Helibar Bridge on, and they move the bars waaaaaay back... 1.5", plus you get a lot of rotational adjustability. Cost me $200 US from a buddy who bought but did not install. The bad news is you can no longer raise the tank, must remove the back tank bolt to get it out. Also, the bars now hit my tank bag, but I'm OK (I think) having the bars rotated fully forward (they are still back 1.5"). Will try that for a while and see.

    I haven't done my Seat Concepts thing yet..... no rush as I have a Russell.

    I modified the bars slightly at my friends shop in Florida during March.( put 5600km on the bike).!!
    If you know anyone who has a C14 they need to get his flash. Totally transforms bike in a very good way.( (shoodabenengineering.com)


    I was not able to get pins out but I drilled the furthest back holes very slightly oversized (two bit sizes up)(can't remember exact size now).
    When I reinstalled bars I held bars to most forward movement in holes and retorqued. I gained like 2 or 3 deg at bar ends and just enough to take the pain out of wrists. Worked out really well.
    I would really like to see your bar setup sometime (I had helibars on my Concours for years and remember they were 500US way back....so I feel your pain)


    With the slight bar adjust and the seatconcepts seat ( not perfect buy WAY better than stock) 1000km days very doable now.


    Congrats on the bike

    Sorry Steve, I missed your message until now........ I had done the opposite, I rotated my bars back, but no reason you couldn't do the same forward..... I'd have to take the covers off to see how the slots are.........
    All I did was pull out one of the positioning pins in the bottom of the handlebar, and this will allow it to pivot on the other remaining pin. The pins can be hard to get out, but a good pair of vice grips might do it, or put it in a vice and tap the handlebar...... no worries if you want to put the pin back in or try switching which pin you leave in, OR, pulling both pins...... the trick here is making both sides the same. I would recommend risers, which also have pins, but at least you can judge the position a bit better..... maybe use some painters tape first to mark a reference........

    If that doesn't work for you, you might want to consider the Helibars riser plate.... expensive, brings the bars way back, gives rotational adjustment.... did I mention expensive

    Got a question for you....


    I recall somewhere reading about 3rd gen bar handle bar adjustment, and that you had changed angle.


    So I have moved my bars a couple of times and now at rear most position. I would like to rotate the bar ends slightly forward (probably about one hole(1/4")??


    If you do this I assume you have to remove at least one of the locating pins and not reinstall as well as either bore the slot slightly wider to allow pivot and reinstall of secondary (cable holder bolt). OR do you think the one main bolt torqued to spec is enough??


    May attempt this when I get to Florida, and seek a little advice in this regard if you have infact tinkered with this before.


    Thanks
    Steve
