Question LSL handlebar conversion on a 2016 Thrux R

I am contemplating putting a higher handlebar on my R due to back issues. Has anybody done the LSL conversion or any other handlebar conversion and if you have does it help with back issues ?? I'm pretty handy with tools and would like to do it myself. Is it hard to do the conversion ?? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

A few of us have changed bars....on the Street Twin, T-120, and Speed Twin.

I believe Blusideup put LSL bars on his Speed Twin.

I don't recall someone changing bars on the Thruxron, but surely someone has.

Depending on the bars, it usually involves a longer clutch cable, rerouting or extending the brake line and elec wires.

And making a cutout on the end of the bars, and drilling a couple of holes for heated grips and a locating hole for the throttle tube.

Hi, i did install the lsl kit,
all you need is included, the fit is perfect, instructions are clear,
longer clutch cable is provided, all the wires and brake line fits.

The hardest part is to drill out the two bolts that holds the ignition switch
to the triple clamp. A nice way to spend a rainy afternoon

So glad I found this thread! I've been flip flopping between a Thrux R and a Speed Twin simply because of the handlebars! Now I'm wondering if there aren't any other clip-on (under the tree) bars that are taller than OEM that won't require mutilating the top triple clamp

LSL handlebar conversion on a 2016 Thrux R

I installed an LSL flat track on my T100. Amazing difference on a long ride. British Customs recently announced handlebar kits(although it doesn’t look like it applies for the Thrux):
