I put the Heli bars on my 09 R6 and have to say I LOVE them. It's not a super dramatic difference physically, not noticable if you look at the bike. Up about an inch and out a few degrees but made a huge difference for me in riding comfort. Definitely more flickable at lower speeds being slightly wider you have more leverage. It gives me more room to push/pull on the bars when leaning. Overall just more comfortable to ride with, fits me on the bike better, and leaves you wanting to ride all day without any crunched over back/arm feeling issues. The heli bars and some snake skins made a night and day difference in riding comfort.... as well as learning to squeeze with my legs. My .02.
