Hmm that sounds good commandodave. I am not short and I find myself putting weight on the bars a lot, though recently I am trying to use my core and knees to take pressure off the bars, per live_to_ride and aufitt I believe. If I still have issues I will consider this option much more.

Do you have any clearance issues between the tank and hands when doing tight turns, as someone mentioned a few posts ago?

Has anyone who fitted helibars found that there is no more handle bar vibration, as well as being more comfortable the disappearance of vibration was excellent.

There is just enough space with helibars installed for my gloved hand to fit between the tank and clipon at full lock with like 1-2mm of free space. I haven't ever looked at the steering stops on this bike to see how adjustable they are/aren't, but my stops are at whatever the bike was assembled with. No problems here, either.

As for vibrations, I don't remember what it was like before the bars. As of right now, I don't really feel vibrations in my hands until about 8-8.5k RPM.

I don't normally ride my CBR with the bars at full lock in either direction. I have not noticed any problems while wheeling it about the garage, either.

Maybe it is me, or I just got lucky with my bike, but I do not notice any vibration in the bars, either before or after the Helibar conversion.
