Has anyone fitted Ilium bars SPECIFICALLY on a 2016 K1600GT?

I'm interested in any clearance issues anyone may have, or has had, with fitting the bars to a 2016 and possibly the 2015 model as well. Ilium has made a slight modification to the system on these bikes with thicker spacers as BMW has changed the head boss design. I'm having a bit of a clearance issue that I will call them about, but thought I'd ask here as well. Thanks guys.

Had them on a 2013 GTL and moved them over to 2015 GT and they work great. No clearance issues at all

I had the same clearance issue I bet your having. I finally just used the spacers that were original equipment not
the Ilium ones. Cost me a bunch of time to arrive at that solution.

I have Ilium bars on my 2016. The dealer did the install when they prepped the bike prior to delivery so I cannot speak to ease of install. However, they appear to be just as cleanly integrated as the Ilium bars were on my '12 GT.

I've had five sets of Ilium bars for various bikes. Great company to work with.
