Ozonewanderer Posted June 5, 2010 Share Posted June 5, 2010 I have a new 2010 RT with a few hundred miles on it, and I get some pain between my shoulder blades. I think it is from the forward position of the handlebars. I have to reach out to them and it puts weight on my arms, shoulders and upper back. Has anyone used bar backs like IliumWorks (http://www.iliumworks.com/Store_Det...019&InfoID=5919) or Moto Techniques (http://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=71103)? Are they easy to put on? Do I need special tools to remove the handlebar bolts? Will the stock cables work? Do the cables need any special adjustment? And most importantly did bar risers eliminate the upper back pain? On the other hand I read a very interesting thread about something called the "Master Yoda Riding Position" which promises to address the back/shoulder pain. Here's the thread: http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthrea...ber=2766&page=1 Has anyone tried this MYRP and found greater comfort from this position? I am trying it out but I seem to move the pain to my lower back. I'll keep practicing. Thanks for any insights! Link to comment
