That's what I have.. I like them - they're comfy & the adjustability is nice..sometimes I'll put them flat out, othertimes angled more downward.
Hey, these are exactly what I am after ;D - can you let me know where I can get them, and the name / type / ordernumber? Much appreciatedChris in SCruz said:That's what I have..

Those are the adjustable ones, I just got a pair of non-adjustables, with a more radical down-angle to them..don't know how comfy they'll be since I do 100+ miles a day..
ducatistein. which of the lsl "superbike" bars do you have? according to the speigler website there are three: high, regular, and low. i like the low ones since the regular don't seem to be much lower than the stock bars. it also looks like their "sport-tourer" bar might be a good option to get the bars lower while still clearing my tank. just how close are the bars you've got? did your controls clamp to the bar fine or are these bars some weird german/bmw off-sized deal? they DO seem to favor bmws on their site.Ducatistein said:
thanks for the input! it's a tough comparison since i don't know how your converted s4 clamp compares to mine, i think the riser on the older monsters (i.e. your old 750) is taller. your conversion kit just might be the same as my '02 750's top triple, though. i'm still trying to decide which bars to use... the "low superbike" bars just make me nervous since the tank gets wider further down. the "sport tourer" bars seem a safer bet since the drawing shows them going forward a bit before pulling back. seems to me that would help the switchgear clear the tank without having the bars tilted too far forward. i'm hoping to find a dealer that's actually a dealer, first! the speigler website lists bob's bmw, but they just wrote back to me saying they'd never sold LSL stuff... weird ???Ducatistein said:SlowDuc,
I have the regular superbike bars on mine. They seem lower than the stock monster bars but mine are on a S4 with a handlebar conversion kit. They are lower than my stock S4 bars and much closer to the rider, but that may be a result of the handlebar kit. With the handlebar kit the bar mounts almost on top of the triple clamp. If my memory serves me, my old M750 had a small riser under the bars which might raise the regular superbike bars up to stock height. If you want lower, you might try the low superbike bars and rotate them foward untill they clear your tank. And yes, all my controls fit, it is a standard 7/8'' bar. I hope this helps!
