Superbike Handlebar Conversion KITs
When, as I have, you age into your 40s and 50s your favourite sports bikes can become more and more uncomfortable, with neck, back and wrist pain limiting distances.
Standard sports bike clip-on handlebars offer very limited individual adjustments to suit body stature and personal riding style. For over 25 years German company ABM have provided a remedy: with ready-to-assemble superbike conversion kits for a range of over 200 different motorcycle models. These include all the necessary conversion parts such as brake and clutch lines in the delivery.
The conversion increases - depending on the model - the height of the hands by up to 150mm (6"), which allows a more upright sitting position. Especially on long tours this has a clear advantage because of the more relaxed riding position. Vision of the road ahead is increased as is the sense of speed and therefore safety is improved.
Fairings and of course screens are always retained, some bikes will require these to be trimmed (stated in the listing) but the vast majority will be left intact. ABM will include spacers to lift the rear of the fairing to make more room on some models. If you have a factory steering damper this will always be refitted as is the ignition switch in the original position.
Handlebars and risers are selected by ABM from their range to best suit each conversion, these handlebars are available in a range of colours as are the often needed bar ends weights.
Popular models are for the ZZR1400, VFR800, GSXR range etc but also include up to date models such as the H2SX and Thruxton 1200R.
