    Handlebar Conversion - Tube-Style Bars

    Available in Black and Silver

    This tube-style handlebar conversion replaces the cast handlebar of the RS with our exclusive and ergonomic yet sporty tube-style handlebar. The more upright seating position not only makes the RS much better for long distance journeys, it also significantly improves handling.

    Details:

    • Ergonomically offset handlebar for optimum seating position
    • Includes adapter for attaching the original handlebar ends
    • Aluminum tube-style handlebar with 32 mm diameter
    • Pre-drilled for easy fitting of the handlebar fittings
    • Upper handlebar mounts included
    • Width / height / offset 798/100/172 mm


    NOTE: Changes from stock bar position: 2.25" Wider x 2.75" Higher x 1.25" Back

    Higher and Farther Back

    These bars are higher and farther back, and they have relieved the pain on my wrists and shoulders from riding >2 hours.
    Outstanding ergonomic improvement
    | August 29th, 2022
    I bought a clean, low-miles 2016 R1200RS earlier this year that came equipped with HeliBars risers. The setup was definitely better than stock but not comfortable enough for my short arm reach and old boomer back. After months of consideration and trying to tweak the Helibars setup with extra spacers and washers to raise the height, I finally ponied up for the Wunderlich handlebar conversion kit (silver finish). After installation (more on that) and a test ride, I've concluded it's a bit like getting another BMW bike for less than $500. The bars not only sweep back at the right angle, they also provide extra leverage while riding at slow turning speeds, and also while man-handling the bike in my garage. I've owned a couple of R1200RT bikes, and while it's not quite as comfy as an RT, it comes close. If (or when) I add Wunderlich barbacks to the conversion, it will be even more comfortable. While I'm no expert motorcycle mechanic, I'm reasonably confident with wrenches and have a knack for hacking mechanical challenges. It took me hours to complete the conversion for several reasons: The Wunderlich installation guide is mostly pictorial with a mix of German and bits of English. Mounting the bars was actually relatively easy and intuitive. The hard part was removing and reinstalling the left and right side switch controls -- and I had to make a run to Harbor Freight for a set of extra-small torx bits. Thanks to my current Haynes manual and some deep Google searches, I found enough information to figure out how to remove the switches, unplug electrical cables and reinstall everything on the wider Wunderlich bars. There is no need to detach the clutch fluid line and reroute it. Instead, remove all of the stock rubberized wire/fluid line ties and move the clutch line outside of the stock cable retainer (looks like a giant paper clip : ). DO NOT try to open the left side switch housing, held together with two small star (torx) screws -- you might ruin it. On the left side, you can find the handlebar bolt by gentling folding back the edge of the rubber grip. The right (brake) side is a little more complicated, requiring the removal of a plastic panel and two tiny screws (requiring a T8 torx bit). Someone mechanically smarter than me could write detailed instructions for removing and reinstalling the left/right control switches, which could save future customers time and anguish. Back to the handlebars: the fit and finish are outstanding. Well worth the investment, and I think this conversion will pay dividends in comfort and enjoyment for years to come. Wunderlich USA -- thank you!

    2017 R1200RS Handlebar conversion
    | November 9th, 2021
    Great fit and not too hard install. Instructions could use updating, for example there's no need to drill holes, the handlebars have them pre-drilled, but that's not a big deal. Did not have to relocate the clutch line, but I want to put risers too so I won't be able to avoid a dealing with this and overall, an excellent product.

    As written in the other reviews, the bars changed the feel of my RS significantly, and for the better. I had installed Helibar risers previously, which helped with the riding position up and back, but they did not eliminate the shoulder fatigue. These bars reduced the fatigue significantly. Wunderlich would have been given 5 stars but I held back a star for their almost useless instructions. You are better off watching their You Tube video on how to install there bar risers, which is basically the same procedure. Contrary to their instructions, I did not have to drill any holes as intimated on panel 12 in their instructions. There were already predrilled holes for the brake and clutch set screws. I did not have to reroute my clutch hydraulic cable since my clutch lever was long enough and there was enough room to move my clutch perch towards the center of the bar. It is a little tight on the full left turn but does not introduce undue stress on the line. I would highly recommend the bars to anyone that would like a more GS feel to their bike.
