    G'day guys, just wondering if anyone has swapped out their GSA stock bars for the US made Helibar?

    I see there is a local importer in Melbourne, but they advised today they don't stock the Helibar. If anyone has fitted these bars, I'd be interested in your thoughts on the bars and where you sourced them from in Australia.

    Cheers

    DNL,

    I have installed them on my 2016 GSA.

    Since I live in the US I sourced them directly from the MFG.

    No idea how to get them in Australia.

    I will take some pictures tonight and post them.

    I installed them myself approximately 3 hours.

    Mick Hone's will get them in for you, but don't stock much, and not the BM stuff as DNL has said. Not much help if you want to put ya mitts on them and see how they feel.
    In all my travels I havn't come across anyone running any kind of alternative handlebar on a GS. Every bugger seems to go for one of many different kinds of risers and bar-backs and then stay with the stock bars.
    Good luck with the chase.

    Cheers
