My old R1150RT was one of the most comfortable bikes that I've ever owned, but not doing quite so well with my '18 R1200RT - getting quite a lot of muscle stiffness and quasi-cramping between my shoulders, so I'm trying bar-backs to see if that helps. Ancient wisdom was narrower bars a la R100RS but obviously that's not an option.
Could someone provide the following dimensions please - for standard bars alone and/or with Ilium bar-backs, or whatever else you might have. A little help which might help anyone else making decisions.
Any yes, I know that this next one is the wrong bike but could only find a top view of an old model
Distance B should be center of bar end weight to tip of the rack.
With Wunderlich bar-backs, the dimensions are for 1' 10-1/16" center of bolt to center of bolt, for A, and 4' 7" for B.
In theory, left & right should be the same, but...
BTW, I hear from Ilium that Distance B their 1250RT is 4' 8" which I think should be the same for the 1200 probably. He couldn't answer the Distance A part as the 1250 apparently doesn't have the same referenced bolt.
