Raise handle bars ?

New owner here. I just picked up a 2016 1299S. Is there a way to raise the handle bars/clip-ons? I know there are aftermarket clip-on risers, but it looks like there will be clearance issues with the fairing at full steering lock. I was just hoping that maybe someone found a way around this. Thanks

Squats and deadlifts are better solutions, and it doesn't cause clearance issues ��

*sigh*

Ken many people have wondered the same thing. Use the search function and be prepared to read a lot because this topic has been covered here like 10 times and each thread has multiple pages of posts.

In short, yes you can do it but there maybe more to it that you're thinking there is. It's not really cheap either, especially if you don't cut the fairings (because why would you want to do that).

Also get ready for like, a hundred people to tell you how you bought the wrong bike and should have gotten a mulistrada and blah, blah blah, blah blah.... *rolls eyes* These are the same people who hammer screws into dry wall with a crescent wrench.

Imma big fat dude and I came from a Monster 1200 S model to the 1299 Base. I've wanted this bike in my garage since I test rode it in early 2015. Ergonomically is it perfect for me? Fuck no, it's a superbike and I'm a fat fat fatty. But this bike is 90% perfect for me and I don't mind spending the coin to 'fix' the other 10%.

Raise handle bars ?

If I were going to attempt this, Iíd likely try the speedy-moto clip ons for a few reasons) 1) itís 8 tenths of an inch rise. 2) You donít have to remove the triple clamp to put them on 3) you can try it with the stock bar, (no drilling holes)

As you can see I put a tad bit of thought into this. In the end I seriously doubt I will try it. If you do please tell us of your results.

Hi Ken,
Don't rush out and blow cash right away ride it for a while and your muscles may adjust and get stronger/adaptable.
At least add some short rides and longer rides and then decide next step. Some Tylenol or alleve may help until you get use to the clip-on angle. What happened to the 1198s shopping?

Gilles has a kit. I bought one of the first ones back in 2013. Because it was one of the first there were some problems which I covered in posts back then. You do not need to cut any fairings. The kit should be sorted by now. It is very time consuming. I would say about 15 to 20 hours of work if you take your time. I have a neck injury so could not stay on the bike for more than an hour. Buy one and give it a go. Other option is someone sells a steering damper bracket and then you can use any other raised clip on options. Not sure about clearance issues though. Each solution will be different.

Gilles has been working for me for 5 years now.

Thanks for the info! I checked out their site and they have 2 different types of clip ons...which do you have? Also how do you figure 15-20 hours of work? I've swapped clip ons on several other bikes in the past and it didn't take more than 2 hours or so being careful. Having never done it on a 1299 what is so different that it takes that long?

^^ I’m curious why it would take that long also, assuming all parts are there.
