Handlebar extensions?

Due to a recent back injury it isn't the easiest leaning forward on my 2002 K1200RS, are there after market handle bars that are possibly taller where a little more adjustment back towards the rider are available? My factories are as far back as they can go. Thanks

There's a few kits available that move the bars up and back 1.5" - 2". I removed the kit from my bike as I like being more forward.

Here's just one example: http://pirateslair.net/wunderlichbb.htm

Google K1200RS handlebar riser kit and you'll find more.

Bar Backs

Hi

You could have a look at these.

I had a pair with my 98 k1200rs, but they fouled on the standard screen so I did not fit them, you really need a touring screen for them to work AFAIK.

Been looking for some for my GT also... I spotted these ones on that MV site and almost fell off the chair... over Euro 2200!

I settled on ordering these for my GT, whch has non-adjustable bars.

They have similar ones for the RS.... US$100.95
