    There are quite a few of us who have installed Helibars on our RTs. The ONLY complaint I've heard is the price. $600 is a lot of money but IMHO, well worth it.

    I am very happy I installed the Helibars on my '21 RTL. So many configurations to fit just me..

    Installed mine this past Saturday. Rode a few hours Sunday and no more shoulder/back pain.

    I'm still tweaking the position though. That's the downside to so many ways to adjust. You always wonder if they could be just a little bit better.

    I wanted to try the Short Reach bars from CanAm before investing in the Helibars. I was also hesitant because of all the micro (yet beneficial) adjustments that need to be made with the Helibars. In my case at least, they (Short Reach) have eliminated the neck and shoulder pain that I had experienced with the stock bars. No matter which way you go, have a hair dryer ready to heat the four large bolts, loaded with Loctite, that keep the handlebars in place.

    Been curious about the Heli-bars.
    Near infinite micro-adjustments is a no-brainer for comfort (readalso: say goodbye to back/neck/shoulder pain).
    Same basic logic behind the “U-Fit”, but for your handgrip ergonomics. (and Last handgrip you’ll ever need... at that.)

    My standard bars feel good for me (so far), so not looking to this as a “solution” for discomfort on rides, but
    definitely keeping these in mind for the future.

    I assume this is one of those “it pays for itself in comfort” kind of buys.
    $600 is steep. But the workmanship looks good, and they made it easy to install/adjust;
    good design is what commands the high price, and they did darngood.

    Hope you enjoyed them @Cirhere! Let us know how you like them (for all us destitute non-Heli’s out there)
