HeliBars Suzuki GSXR 600/750 2006-2014
I'm a 5'6 female on a gsxr600, before getting these bars I was completely laying on my tank and using the grips to literally hold myself up. After going on my first long ride with the helibars installed yesterday I couldn't be happier! Not only was the ride more comfortable but my weight was distributed correctly and I could even sit up while cruising.

Subtle change=Big difference
Looking at these bars, it is easy to discount how much the small changes from stock could really affect the quality of a ride. In my case, I am 5 foot 4 inches tall ,150 lbs and probably smaller than the average rider my 2015 GSXR 750 was designed around. As a result I am reaching pretty far forward with more weight on the wrists and less butt on the seat. Installing the Helibars removed a great deal pressure on my wrists and automatically shifts me further back on the bike putting my butt on wider padding and shifting my weight onto the beefier back wheel (a good thing). My already excellent bike just got better.
Build quality is outstanding and fits the mounting points with close tolerances. I recommend downloading the install guide from Helibar in case you need to acquire some tools before the install. Not everyone has a 36mm socket wrench. Instructions are good but I agree with the other reviewer - an official video install would be welcome.
Overall exceeded my expectations and allows me to get even more enjoyment from an already outstanding motorcycle.

Improves riding position
These Helibars were easy to install. Did not require any modifications to the cables like other bar risers. Solves wrist fatigue if you don't ride in the full tuck position.

These HeliBars are AWESOME!
As a 44 year old, I can tell you I l still love racebikes, but age can make some muscles hurt quicker than before. I bought a new GSXR-600 L4 and I love it! The only complaint for me as a 5'7 rider is my arm length and angle of wrist with the stock clip-ons. Putting on these HeliBars really made a world of difference to me. With the new raised wrist position I'm more relaxed and confident. I can concentrate on the importance of riding with focus, versus feeling the pain at my wrists. Obviously, another benefit was that my back is not as hunched over while I'm just crusing around town or on country roads. If I do feel the need for speed, I just tuck in and ride like a mad man. HeliBars are a quality product and I do recommend them to others who have the same issues I did. AAA+
I would like to see HeliBars make an instructional video to remove and replace the clip-ons to help other save some time on the install. I could have used one instead of trying to understand their written directions. I was happy I had a GSXR service manual to reference. Either way their product is awesome!
