The new VFR's fairing and fuel tank really created a design challenge for the development of a HeliBar to improve the stunning new machine's long distance comfort. We designed a HeliBar with the most comfortable hand position the bike would allow and it works with all original hydraulics, cables and control wire looms. It took several prototypes and lots of refinements to get it right, nearly 3 times longer than our normal development time for a new HeliBar design. The time was well spent and we are very excited about our newest member of our VFR HeliBar Family.
NOTE: If you have the optional wind screen on your VFR1200 manual (VFR1200F) & VFR1200 DCT (VFR1200R, also known as VFR1200FD), simply adjust the final position of the left side bar to avoid any interference at full lock by pulling the left bar back towards the rider as close as possible without contacting the fairing.

I read a lot of reviews before taking the plunge on these, but I'm glad I did. They really have transformed the comfort of the bike. Although they only take up the bars by 2 inches and back by one inch and an inch wider overall (there's not much more you can do on this VFR) they also change the grip angle and have cured the problem I've had with the bike since I bought it, sore wrists. So, worth their weight in gold. Can't say what they were like to fit as the Honda dealer I bought the bike from did the job for me, but the instructions that came with the kit were very clear. Great build quality compared to the stock bars. Much heavier.
As for Chainspeed, they delivered the bars very quickly so no complaints whatsoever and they were much cheaper than eBay! So, all good!
