I had an '06 14 and I have a '12 14R. Nice little step forward. Great bike, except for gas mileage.

Bought mine new back in 06. It's done everything from trackdays to touring - just a great bike.

I recently fabricated pannier racks for some fast touring on the 14R next riding season.



Contrary to the way it looks in this pic, the 35" pannier width ( Givi E21's) is less than the width of the mirrors.

My previous bike was a Vstrom with HUGE ass panniers... thought I would miss them....





and after 2 months and 4400kms, my comment is bah! who needs panniers when you got bungee cords?!

Bar risers?

How upright do those risers have you sitting? I love these bikes, but due to many injuries I can't lean over for long. These particular risers look great, how they working for ya?

I'm all ears...

They look like the same ones that are on my bike, I believe its 3/4". They aren't a huge difference but help. My problem is shoulders, the pain is still there but more manageable. I added a concours seat though, which basically cancels out the risers. So now either way something is sore.

All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.

Here is my 2007, I bought it knew and have just over 34,000 miles on it. I have offered it up to some friends for $5000 but will keep riding happily if it doesn't sell.




Here's a link to my on going picture thread with many more pictures of this bike , my triumph, and wife's 696

They are Genmar and Heli risers stacked (installed by previous owner), and add about 1 1/4" rise...work great.

Does anything hit the fairing? I was told you can't stack risers because the bars hit the side of the windscreen. Stock cables?

Another option is the LSL conversion. This cans the clip ons and converts to a handlebar. Very comfy and comes with stainless steel front brake lines

The brake reservoir barely makes contact with the edge of the screen....cables are stock.

I'll try to remember to get some pics later today.
