Self-Install Helibars on '08 GL1800

I had researched Helibars for quite a while, and took the leap after a friend's funeral.

I was #2 in a bike procession to the cemetery, whose entrance was a 90° turn with an immediate uphill grade of broken asphalt. Negotiating the turn on my ’08 GL1800 at a slow 5(?) mph, PLUS the ramp up, put a tweak on the forks which gave a shake and nearly dumped the two of us. (I don’t think she knew, but it definitely startled me.) So I figured I wanted additional control if I was ever in that situation again.

The couple hundred miles I’ve put on the bars so far have been enjoyable. I immediately noticed more control during slow turns, such as doing a left turn across traffic from a dead stop. Being of medium frame and not having especially long arms, I’m now able to bring the bars back and twist them in for a much more comfortable ride.

I did the install myself. I’d give the included instructions an A-, wanting more detail in some of the directions (such as where those damn securing clips are located on the electrical connections). I definitely recommend having the bike’s maintenance manual nearby since some of the installation instructions did not work at all (such as the removal of the instrument dash – no use of a card to pop the speaker screens on this model (since they’re bolted to the inner face of the dash)). Download and read the instructions while you’re waiting for the delivery, to determine if you feel confident to do the work yourself. It’s not rocket science, but I did need to use an air powered impact wrench to loosen the original handlebar bolts. Most of the frustration came during the break down process, versus the install.

The parts were well packaged, and the powder coated finish is nice. A well designed product that I think you will definitely enjoy. Save up your quarters … it’s worth it.
