I'm a Newbie, help needed with 2004 handlebars

Hi K bikers,

Riding 42 years, 15 bikes, just bought my first Beemer that's not a car this week, 2004 K1200GT, 46,000 kilometers

So.... I'm 6-3 and adjusted seat height and lowered footpegs, but handlebars dont appear to adjust and the reach is not so comfortable. Had Heli Bars on a VFR800, but on the Heli web site they are not available for the 2004 GT, only the 1200/1300... any suggestions?

thanks, Chuck

I have an '09 1300GT with the Suburban Machinery bar backs. Also used SM on my '05 12RT when I had it. They really help a lot.

Hi

Verholen do some. They may not fit with standard windscreen.
I had some came with the bike, but I didnt use them. Sold them on Ebay.
