I picked Helibars for several reasons:

CNC machined TracStar™ HeliBars® for BMW K1200S

  • Retains stock cables, hydraulic lines and damper end weights
  • Satin cast finish
  • 6061 Aluminum construction
  • Easy installation
  • Works with factory heated grips
  • Comfortable down angle and back angles have been retained
  • 1 ¼” (32mm) taller
  • ½” (13mm) rearward
  • 1 ½” (38mm) wider
  • Accommodates Throttlemeister

Got my HeliBars from Sierra BMW for $US199. (http://www.sierrabmwonline.com/product_info.php/heli-k1200s-tracstar-handlebars-alpha-listings-ts05027-p-550) Talk to Alan Kuffel. These guys are good!

NOTE: The left and right control housings are a bit complex with small screws and covers. Use caution when re-assembling the housing. Remember you are tightening screws into plastic. Do NOT over tighten during re-assembly.

These are the photos of the stock handlebars.

To remove the Left Handlebar

Using a Torx T45 bit, remove bar end weights.

Proceed to cut the cable ties that hold the wire loom from the left control housing - one under the handlebar anti-rotation bracket and other attaching the wire loom to the underside of the top triple clamp.

Using a Torx T25, remove the torx bolts that holds the master cylinder into the left handlebar.

Using a Torx T30, loosen the two clamping screws (#1 & #2) that hold the left handlebar into the the top triple clamp. NOTE: Only the inner most torx screw needs to be removed to withdraw the stock bar (see #1).

Remove the anti rotation bracket holding screw (see #3) located under the top triple clamp.

For now, leave the handlebar loose from the triple clamp.

Using a Torx T8, remove the 2 screws to remove the lower housing cover.

Remove the screw and nut holding the left grip in place. Peel back the grip to gain access to the Phillips screw head.

Remove the inner most torx screw (#1) using a T30, and slide the stock handle bar out.

Proceed to remove the Right Handlebar.

Remove the bar end weights using a T45 Torx.

Remove the cable ties as per previous step.

Using a T25 Torx, remove the front brake master cylinder from the right handlebar.

Using a T30 Torx, loosen the two screws clamping the right handlebar to the top triple clamp. NOTE: Only the inner most screw needs to be totally removed to withdraw the stock bar.

Remove the anti-rotation bracket screw located under the top triple clamp. (see #2). The anti-rotation bracket is shown (#1).

For now, leave the handlebar loose. We will withdraw it later in the next steps.


 

Using a T8 Torx, proceed to remove the two screws that hold the upper control housing cover.

Using a T20 Torx, remove the screw from the Throttle Upper Halt. (#1).

Loosen #2 torx screw holding the upper half control body.

Loosen #3 torx screw.

Proceed to withdraw the handlebar out of the top triple clamp. Slide the handlebar out of the control body housing.

Installation of the TracStar HeliBars is the reverse of all the above steps.

Here's the after look with the HeliBars installed
