CORNISH, ME. (July 26, 2017) -- HeliBars® Tour Performance™ Handlebar Riser for Yamaha’s athletic, do-it-all FJ-09 moves its handlebar an inch higher and the brings the handgrips an inch closer. The result is a more upright and rearward seating position that increases comfort and allows for better bike control.


Using HeliBars' downloadable FJ-09 Installation Guide, Tour Performance risers are much easier to install than new handlebars. The manual contains detailed, step-by-step instructions illustrated by eight photos. Mounting the riser is a 45-minute job that requires basic mechanical skills, but no special tools.


Simply unbolt the FJ’s handlebar, place Heli’s lightweight, one-piece aluminum riser into the stock bar mounts and cinch them down with the original clamps and longer, zinc-plated bolts provided.


To minimize complexity, the FJ-09 Tour Performance Handlebar Riser is engineered to perfectly integrate with all of the Yamaha’s standard components -- no need to replace the throttle and clutch cables or the hydraulic brake hose. The riser comes finished in a tough, UV-resistant bronze powder coating at no extra charge.
