CBR650F Cbr650f bar risers

Hi All,

New to the forum and looking to buy a CBR 650 f when finances allow. Have ridden a few of the bikes competing in this sector and found the CBR ticked more boxes for me - the only draw back being the bar position. I have owned a couple of VFR800's in the past with similar problems - old age demands a more upright bar just now. I have looked on the forum (bar risers) and nobody, from what I have read, has convinced me they have solved the issue.

Have come across the ABM clip on system which they have developed for the CBR. They sell a kit which includes the bar riser (20mm or 40mm), clip ons, extended brake line, extended clutch and horn cables - for the princely sum of £320.00 in the UK.

Anybody using these? Feedback most gratefully received.

Thanks for that and the link. I have a naked bike at present (Kawasaki Er6n) which is fine on A roads in UK but need to travel on Motorways to get to decent bike roads so need a faired bike.

I have a Givi screen which has made a great difference - but it still gets breezy. That is one of the reasons I am looking at the CBR - you don't necessarily have to have big BHP to get a move on. I had a BMW K1 back in the day and that could reach 150 mph on 90 odd BHP.

I have the cb with Honda small fly screen and wind isn't really a problem for me.
