BMW 1200RT Handlebar Risers

R2 (2005 thru 2009) Discontinued
R4 (2010-2013)
R3 (1996 - 2004) still available

The new R4 fits the shape of the newer handlebar castings better than the R2.
The R4 is 0.875" thick to accommodate the throttle cables of the 2012 & 2013 model. 
----No hose or cable changes are needed.----

Kit includes 8 stainless steel 8 x 55mm
socket head cap screws.

One inch tall handlebar risers.
Net change .894 up , .447 back.

At the MOA Lima, OH rally, numerous R12RT owners sat on our bike with the handlebar risers installed and gave the new hand position high marks. The view through the mirrors is consistently better.
Production parts are clear anodized to match handlebar.

The handlebar up kit is now available with four 55mm and four 70mm long bolts for use with the BMW factory GPS.
The picture at right shows riders view of the instrument panel with the riser kit installed along with the GPS.

R2GPS bolt kit for use with BMW factory
GPS mounting bracket.
R2 & R3 use 8 bolts, R4 uses 6 bolts.
For GPS units mounted on the handlebars attachment bolts.

The 2013 R1200RT mounts the GPS in the bodywork.
Therefore the long bolt kit is not needed.
Use kit #  R4 for all 2013 RT models.

This R1100R has the optional center console.
In this case the R3 will not fit on this bike.
