Honda VFR1200 Standard Replacement Handlebars
Heli Modified started making VFRs more comfortable in 1986 and has sold tens of thousands of HeliBars to VFR customers around the world. Heli Modified knows VFRs, and VFRs with HeliBars equals Comfort Without Compromise! Check out the recent articles in Motorcyclist Magazine Dec 2011 & June 2012 !
The new VFR’s fairing and fuel tank really created a design challenge for the development of a HeliBar to improve the stunning new machine’s long distance comfort. It took several prototypes and lots of refinements to get it right, nearly 3 times longer than our normal development time for a new HeliBar design. The time was well spent and we are very excited about our newest member of our VFR HeliBar Family.
Although, this bar is not as tall and rear offset as some owners might like, we designed a HeliBar with the most comfortable hand position the bike would allow and it works with all stock hydraulics, cables and control wire looms. **2” (50 mm) Taller 1” (25 mm) Rearward 1” (25 mm) Wider (at 26 1/2) 8 degree reduction in downward angle 3.18 degree reduction in rearward angle **Please note that these are the true measurements taken at the wrist position, not at the fixing point or fork or triple clamp, the shape and angles of the HeliBars product give the final result required and indicated in the product description.
**NOTE: When R&D was conducted on the VFR1200 & VFR1200 DCT the stock bikes did not include the optional wind screen. The optional wind screen can interfere on the left side at full lock to lock. We have heard from the field that pulling the left bar back towards the rider as close as possible without contacting the fairing alleviates this situation.
This does NOT fit the DCT version.
