Bar swap suggestions?

Has anyone tried out either the Heli Bars or the Converti Bars on their R6's or any other sport bikes? Did it make a significant improvement? How was the fit, finish and install? Any opinions on which is better are welcomed.

Thanks for the info!

Re: Bar swap suggestions?

I have Heli Bars on my fireblade, it does make a diffrence, but even in stock form its miles better than the R6, mainly because its a bigger bike.

Fitting is straight foward, there good quality to.

Only thing is yes they will make a diffrence, but you have a small race style bike, its never going to be as comfy as say a fazer.

Its one of the trade off's for having a supersport bike.

I have heli's on my R1 and they're great. hey make a huge dif imo. a little pricey but i'm old and no way could ride distances without em. The converti-bars require modifying/cutting the fairing but offer more adjustability.

yah, i realize the R6 is no sport tourer but if i could make it just a bit more comfy would be good. thanks for the input guys. i'm going to look into the heli bars and see if they have a kit for the R6. if anyone has any pics too that would be great.

thanks!

Hey mark! I had installed helibars tracstar on my 2014 r6 two days ago and they are just great. The R6 now feels more like a sports tourer and will make you ride it all day... Atleast now I can ride it over long distances without bothering about the shoulder blade and neck trauma that I was facing with the stock clipons.

The helibars make the bike more flick able in traffic and you will be lane splitting with a slightest opening in the traffic. Will keep you updated and post some pics later....

The fit and finish is very nice..
