Gilles Vario Bar Riser & Extension Kit

Did any one install the Gilles Vario Bar with extension kit on 04-06 R1 ?
I 've bought the standard Gilles vario bar form Motomummy. These are really good quality one. However, it keep the standard height of the bar and the adjustable angle are limited.
I decided to buy the extension kit in which raise the bar for 40mm higher.
I guess it will be much better.
Asking Motomummy to help in these issue.

Its come out the handle bar become higher and longer than the standard.
Comfort or useful depends on your feeling.
It seem to be great for you to hang out your body.
Its also good when you are touring.
The fixing is not so ideal. The fixing nut need special tools in order not to scratch the finishing. The nut will loose out easy if you fix the nuts too gentle.

Can you post pics of the installed risers?
Do they contact the fairing or any other OEM part?
Can you state how much they "pull back" and the angle from OEM position?

Smile Gilles Vario Bar

Its now using in my track bike 2005 R1, Its good when you are going straight in high speed because you may now keep your body on the tank much more comfortable. The width and the angle of the handle bar make your angle of your arm become more natural.
Will take some picture on the next track day.
