"Did u install your convertibars ..what the highest you could go without interference .. i know ur leaving on ur extended trip today so have fun and please dont forget for your review on the convertibars" ..
I got the Spiegler superbiker bar kit. They came the day after I left for NC/TN, so I haven't had a chance to mount them. This was the reply I got from Spiegler last year when I asked about how high they go.
" I'm sorry to say that I don't really have any great pictures or templates available from LSL regarding the amount of modification required. (we're lucking to get the instructions in English half of the time!)
The kit does come with the LSL superbike bars, so you would be correct in using those dimensions to mock up fairing trimming.
The best way to tell how much cutting is going to be required is to assume 45 mm rise (approx. 1.75") on the handlebar clamps where the bars mount up, plus 70 mm ( 2.75 ") for handlebar rise, measured approximately 380 mm (~15") from the center of the triple clamp at either full left or full right lock (which will simulate the width of the bars), and measure back from that point 150 mm (~ 5.5") to simulate pull back. That will put you in approximately the location where your bar ends would hit the fairing, which should be the tallest part of the conversion kit."
I made a mock-up use a block of wood and a cut up handle from a hockey stick. I assembled it at the same height, angle and sweep as Speigler claimed. It doesn't look like it will take too much trimming. I probably won't be able to pick up the bars at the post office until this weekend, but after they're on, I'll post some pictures.
