Installed FJR Helibars today - RECOMMEND
Just installed HeliBars Riser on my 2010 FJR and then took about an hour's worth of ride. Substantial difference in posture! I was always somewhere in between leaning forward or back and that lead to a 'tentative' riding experience when it comes to feeling in control from a forward leaning sport bike posture to the inability to sit fully back and relax for a touring posture.

Did a whole bunch of research and landed on the HeliBars. Ordered from RevZilla, got some dough off the price due to my RevZilla points, free shipping and they were here in about four days including a weekend.

Installation was not necessarily the 1.5 hours HeliBars sometimes advertises (keep in mind I am not an avid modder). However including some socializing and making an afternoon of it, my brother and I started at 2pm and I was test riding by 430pm. The toughest part for me was rerouting the throttle cables and hooking them back up (not a lot of room for hands down in there).

On the post-install ride, I was completely upright in the seat, felt more in control and my hand and arm positions were much more comfortable. The difference in steering took about 3 miles to get used to. Looking forward to a longer solo ride and also one with a passenger to see the full benefits.

Nice product from HeliBars, nice service from RevZilla.

Made quite a difference in the riding position.
The stock FJR 1300 puts me in a way too aggressive position for touring. I tried 1-3/8 risers but I was still putting too much pressure on my wrists and the handlebar angle was too narrow.

The Helibars helped a lot. I'm riding more upright though I would like a wider angle still. I haven't tried the middle position yet though I've been on a 3 hour ride. The narrowness and setback interferes with my Givi top bag - when parking or slow speed turns the bag sets off the flashers on one side and the horn on the other. I have to take the bag off to lock the bike.

The installation isn't bad, though routing the cables is difficult as another has said. Even so, in the further most rearward position the cables are quite tight which concerns me a little. But to improve that the way it should be would require custom cables and that's further than I want to go.

All in all, the improvement in the riding position was worth the money and the time. It took me about two hours to do the installation and I'm pretty handy.

I suggest using the instructions on the Helibar web site as the pictures are much easier to make out than the printed version they send you.

FJR1300 + HeliBars Riser + RAM Base + RAM X Grip + Sena = :-)
Raising the handle bars as well as adding the X Grip to hold Phone / Garmin with Sena in Helmet transforms daily commute into a better experience. Since there is a brake line extension, took to dealer for install to avoid any issues with safety or paint.

great product, transforms the bike
bought this for my 2016 fjr1300es after a long ride on the highway (aching back and wrists). This part brings up the bars and also brings them back. Install was nice, pics are included in the instructions...i think the hardest part is extending the brake line (then bleeding it) and removing the wire loom as you have to cut it before you can remove it to get all the wires/cables out of the way. But it took me some of friday night after work, then most of saturday to install it, got done around 4 pm. So far i like it very much. Fit and finish is nice, i thought about just getting a longer brake line, but how? you could go with Spiegler (stainless steel) but the bike is brand new and don't really want to go that route yet. The prep is really the longest part as you have to cut the wire loom, re route the throttle cables, remove a clamp on the clutch cable to extend it. i also removed my gas tank to make it easier (and also i had to re-torque the steering head bearings as the bike was new adn that's part of the 600 mile service i didn't do just yet). And removing the gas tank is simple on the fjr, 2 bolts and one in the back, a fuel line and 2 electrical connections. It does make throttle body synchs a bit more involved in that the handlebars are now in the way so you can't just remove the 2 bolts on the top of the tank and 'pivot' the tank backwards. But a small price to pay for all day riding comfort.

Product delivers on it's design purpose
I installed an after market seat that put me a little higher and away from the bars. I was experiencing hand and wrist discomfort. The Helibar riser provides the perfect position for the bars so that my riding position is upright and relaxed without putting weight on my hands. The installation is involved, but not terribly difficult. The instructions that came with it were very thorough and included many pictures that were very helpful. I highly recommend the product, but not for someone that isn't mechanically inclined.

Excellent Fix
My wrist would get numb and sore after a two hour ride. I bought the FJR so I could ride all day. The HeliBar risers are the perfect solution. After researching several products, I chose the HeliBar risers and I couldn't be happier. It allowed me to sit more upright and completely fixed the pain on my wrist and back. I've now ridden back to back 800 mile days without any pain. They HeliBar risers look great too. I had them installed at the dealer because I didn't want to deal with the brake line extension. The kit came compete with everything we needed and now my FJR is perfect.

Game changer for comfortable long distance riding
Wow, what a difference! These well made risers not only raise the handle bars but also bring them closer to the rider for a comfortable upright position that really helps with making long days in the saddle much more comfortable. I thought it might affect my corning, but it doesn't - it's only a little less stable when making very tight u-turns at very slow "walking speed" which is minor in comparison to what you gain in rider comfort. It definitely helps put the "T" in touring for me on my FJR. The instructions are very detailed with loads of pictures to help with the installations which will take you a few hours.

Really Improves the Ergonomics
I purchased a brand new 2015 FJR, and while I fell in love with the bike from the test ride, I knew that I'd be needing to get the handlebars up and back. This riser kit from Helibars does the trick --- and it's especially nice having the easy connection for a Ram Mount (which I purchased --- the bolt in ball mount with a small extension). Great for the smartphone! But most importantly, my rider position is now perfect (and yes, I'm 53 years old, so my days of having all that wrist pressure from an aggressive rider position are over). Get this kit - you won't be disappointed. Oh ... I had the dealership install mine. Glad I did.

Worth every penny
I got this riser to relieve pressure on my elbows,wrists, and hands. My hands would tingle after an hour or so even when thigh gripping the tank and installing foam grip covers.

I cannot comment on the ease of install as I had it done at the local Yamaha dealer. The tech was happy to have detailed pictures of each step and the install took just under 2 hours and cost $130.

There are no "set" positions as the description states. There is a semicircular cutout in the riser that you rotate the bars on. I have tried the bars at three different placements and found the most comfortable to be in the middle. The most forward placement put pressure on my elbows as only the height is increased. At the most rearward placement the bike seemed awkward at low speeds. Changing placement of the bars takes 5 minutes tops.

Great product
Great product and feels great whilst riding the only criticism is the extension piece from the front brake reservoir to the original brake line. I understand the reasons for this piece but would like to have the option to change out the entire brake line to have a tidier looking finish. Apart from that the speed of delivery from Revzilla was awesome especially to Australia. They beat the local shops on price and delivery times.

Good overall reviews throughout the web and FJR groups; met my desire to not only bring up but to also move back the bars. Night and day difference to my riding triangle...I am 5'10" slim large. Install was fairly straight forward following the directions included.

Does this riser allow adjustment of the angle of the bars as well (ie able to twist foward/aft in the mounted position)?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If I am interpreting you question correctly, the answer is yes. You can change the angle of the bars in whatever position you choose meaning that you can bring the grips closer together or farther apart then stock. It makes it easy to fit it to almost any body type.
I have a 2015 FJR 1300A, not ES. Will this product work?
A C on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2014 1300A and it fit perfectly. One thing to know is that it requires an extension of the brake line (parts included) so requires some mechanical expertise. I tried doing it myself but ended up taking it to my dealer to get it installed.
on my 2008 fjr, there does not seem to be room on the left side of hydraulic lines, picture #13, any suggestions?
A C on Feb 17, 2017
Will this product work on a 2014 FJR 1300 ES Model?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately it does not fit the ES Model. I Think MC Larry makes a top triple tree for the ES
