For those of you interested in a little more comfort







Q:Is Heli planning on making any bars for the ZZ-R1200 ?





A: Thank you for your recent inquiry about Heli Bars. We have actually just developed bars for the ZZR1200. They have not started in production yet, but we are hoping to have them available to start shipping in the next month or so. The bars that we will be offering are very similar in appearance and design to the bars that we have for the ZX11, which can be viewed on our web page.







They give the rider the capability of adjusting the bars up to 4" taller, and 4" more rearward than the stock position. It will be necessary to replace the brake hydraulic line, which we will be supplying with the kit. The cost for the kit will be $419.00 plus shipping. We should have photos posted on our web site within the next couple of weeks. If there is anything else that I can help you with please let me know. Sincerely, Jaime/Sales

buy the Gen-Mar risers, much cheaper and easier to install. I love mine.

Besides...4" taller, i think thoose would be considered Ape-Hangers.

I've installed these but when I turn the bars to the right, the choke cable binds. I was told by the Kawasaki mechanic that I should not re-route the choke cable behind the fork tube because it changes the positioning of the cable where it goes into the plastic unit in the handlebar and that would cause premature wear.

Did you have the same problem ? How did you solve it ?

We both routed the cable to the rear, even though Gen-Mar does not mention this, i has to be done.



It is a steel cable, in a steel housing with a slightly different bend....i can't see how that would cause "premature wear". Plastic unit functions exactly the same as stock. Kawasaki mechanic probably isn't familiar with this exact application change.

Maybe 14 years, instead of 15 years life on the cable itself.

Regarding the Helibar they would need to supply more than the front brake hose. They would also need to supply a diffent clutch hose and choke cable.



I Purchase the Gen Mar but ask strait out if they would reduce the height of the standard riser as part of the deal, and the answer was no, because they won't fit properly. The correct answer is they fit quit well with .5" off the top. It allows you to change the position of the forks in the triple clamp.



The lower height looks more stock and resolves the issue with limited clutch hose at full right turn. The choke cables can be made to work by removing the tank and give them a clear shot through the top of the frame, I re-routed one electric harness to the left side and I was good. I was also able to retain the stock routing of the choke around the front of the fork.

I just ordered my genmars, however, how much do they help the sliding on the stock seat? To me, if I didn't slide so far forward perhaps the pressure on my hands trying to hold myself back wouldn't be so bad, any thoughts? Or is Corbin the only answer?
