Waiting for my K1600 B Have it now
You bought it then ?
The new black bars look cool with a nice offset👍I did some research today regarding my handlebars, I then called Dom. at Procycles to get some facts regarding the sore shoulders and neck pain from the RS bars even with my current pullback/riser bars. They still don't fix that issue on longer rides. He suggested the Wunderlich Handel Bar Conversion Kit part number 31000502. That sounded the same as Troy mentioned. No guarantee that this will do the job but it is a start and it looks as if by going down this part it just might work out. so here is what I got in the conversion kit and a trade discount that helped ease the $$$ a little. One of the mechanics at work said he will fit them for me so that is saving on labour costs.
The only thing these will be Black as they are the only set on stock and apparently the Germans have discontinued the Silver as per the list below from their web site.
This tube-style handlebar conversion replaces the stub handlebar of the RS with our exclusive and ergonomic yet sporty tube-style handlebar. The more upright seating position not only makes the RS much better for long-distance journeys, it also significantly improves handling.

If the weather holds (which I don't think it will, 1 nice day in how long?) we will ride together tomorrow.
