Howdy folks,

Have any of you swapped out you handlebars for another type ? What fits....GS type, Renthal, R9T ?
I am still trying to figure out if the standard 'bars do it for me or not.

I installed handlebars from F800. Shortened a little bit for my liking. But you can just swap them. Gives you different angle and narrower (even without cutting) handlebars. I'm not talking about LC R1200r

What model are you talking about, @airhead_irl? (You might get more focused answers.)

BTW the standard bars on my LC Roadster ‘do it’ for me.

I changed the bars on my previous bike (R1150R) with a pair of pro taper's from a Triumph Speed Triple, they were much more comfortable (the wrist angle on the BMW bars was "painful") than the bars on the bike. I used a set of adapters from Touratech to adapt the pro-taper bars to the standard (7/8") mounts. I find the bars on my 14 R12R as comfortable as the Speed Triple bars were. Good luck
