Any thoughts where I can find a set? It is my understanding that they are no longer in production.

I know you're looking for Heli-bars but if that doesn't work out for you and you are looking to increase the bar height, my ST2 came with these. Look good and work well.

Heli bars

I just put a sey of cycle cat risers on my st4s that came with the bike that the original owner paid 350 for. I am only 5'9" and I didn't notice much difference but they sure look nice.

Bars

I had a set of Helis on my 06 ST3 but took them off in favor of a set of black Converti bars which are readily available.I had no issues with the Helis ..really well made and uses stock bars, so easy installation. An extended road trip and a sore neck made me look further and I got a set of Coverti Bars.These have a much greater range of adjustibility.both angular and height. my fluid reservoirs almost touch the inside of the fairing now.Good workmanship and design here too.I still get a sore neck after a few hundred miles though..aint the bike, its the body. Sixty one and climbing, happy I can ride anywhere

I have the same problem and I always blamed the helmet weight and my age (63). However, it got much worse when I used the 7 degree back setting on my Dr. Desmo risers. I put it back to the stock position and can ride much longer without the pain in my shoulder and neck. I think that wrist angle put pressure on the nerves agravating the neck and upper back area. Play around with bar angle and see if it is lessened any.

I have a set that I bought for my '03 but never installed. I am not sure what brand they are, but they are very well made and a light gold anodized color and come with the hardware.

I will sell them for $75 shipped if anybody is interested.

try the Comfort kit

The comfort kit comes with risers, and a higher windscreen. Also changes the look of your bike.

here is a picture of mine.

IT's not just the age at 63, it's also the miles. At 39 years, 900 miles in a weekend can wear ya out too! How is the clearance on your fairing with the Dr. D's in place?

I have the 1/2 inch and clearance is tight but works fine. He says the 1 inch clear with no problem also. The bars move back as well as up due to the angle.
