Stock or aftermarket?

I have bought a 2005 K1200s, and I'm wondering if it has stock or aftermarket handle bars.
I have looked at the parts fiche, and The bars look like they should be straight. Mine are offset up. I think they are aftermarket. If they are whitch ones? They are painted black and made out of steel.
sorry, I don't have a pic of the bars.


Also I don't have a owners manuel, so I may have question about how to operate some of the features, like the BC and the alarm.

An example of really well-crafted bars is Helibars ( http://www.helibars.com/product/k1200s-‘05-08 )
Look at pics on this link for your bike's year/model and compare to what you've got. Heli's are 6061 aluminum, not steel.
