    Trusty:

    Heli Bars move the bars up 1.50 inches and back 1.25 inches on a sixth gen.

    Oops! Is my barbaric colonial brain correct in thinking that you measure your handlebar movement in mm but your beer in pints? In such a case it's about 37 mm up and 31 mm back. According to the Heli Bar literature the cable length of the original cables is one of the limiting factors in their design. I put them on and, although they fit fine, they are at the limit with the original cables. As many before have attested and with which I completely agree, Heli Bars make a world of difference in comfort for most of us.

    Best of Luck,
