Take me home, El Capitan!

Originators of the barback concept, Verholen of Germany offers a wide selection of barbacks for your BMW K1200RS. Choose from 33mm, 50mm, or 80mm. Keep in mind that if you go longer than 33mm you may or may not have to install a longer brake line. Some need a longer line.. Some do not. Why? BMW was not exactly "uniform" when cutting lines. Some are longer than others.

FYI.. if you need to install a longer brake line, the 97-01 K12RS's REAR brake line is 2" longer than the RS's front line and should work perfectly up to 65mm. Or we occasionally sell Verholen's optional longer brake line (at $65US) for the 50mm kit. Verholen barbacks fit ALL model year KRS's. They do NOT fit the GT. Note: Barbacks are sold only in pairs. Duh. Also.. we're told the 80mm install is a bitch. The main reason being the switch housing wires can not be lengthened. Consider yourself forewarned.

Pirates Lair sells two different brand risers for your BMW K1200RS.. Besides Verholen, we also sell Wunderlich. How do they compare? Design is identical. Wunderlich risers come in a 50mm length and include a longer brake line. So which type barbacks do you need? That's a good question and one we would be glad to spew advice on. We ALWAYS suggest that you NOT buy barbacks until you have spent some time on the bike. Do NOT judge the RS riding position after coming off another bike until you have acclimated to it.

NOTE: If the Verholen 33mm or 50mm risers aren't what you are looking for.. we also carry 50mm Wunderlich risers Here. Don't forget... K1200RS barbacks are not compatible with the K1200GT. For GT Barbacks Click HERE

Sometimes they have minor scratches.. sometimes we just don't have the original packaging. I deem these "unworthy" of selling at full retail price hence the $ discount FYI.. my standards are very rigid. None of the flaws effect structural integrity. Flaws, if any are cosmetic only.
