There is the LSL handle bar option from Murph. http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=387
I ended up with an LSL adapter/riser with old model C10 Helibars which works well for me. I think you can contact Spiegler...
http://www.spieglerusa.com/ ....and buy just the adapter/riser and then buy this... http://www.dx.com/p/moxi-universal-aluminum-alloy-steering-handle-bar-for-motorcycle-black-308489#.VAuGPPmwK7g .... Just a few more options.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Woke up to 3"  of crystalline water ice with another 3"-6" in the forecast. Going to add http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=737172&productVariantId=1209999&WT.srch=1&WT.tsrc=PPC&rid=20&WT.mc_id=GOOGLE%7C19357_Boating+Outboards+%26+Accessories_Oil%2C+Lubes%2C+%26+Fuel+Additives%7CUSA&WT.z_mc_id1=43700001029337046&gclid=CJ3guvag3MECFUxsfgodDZ4A1g&gclsrc=aw.ds
and a oil and drive train fluid change. Then make a cover out of a old Canvas Gazeboo cover, put her on stands and give her a hug for the winter sleep.

Wonder if it took you as long as me to install. 10 mins tops, including changing the original count on the spacers. Didn't use the provided sleeve, was no need for it.  :chugbeer:

Yeah, about ten or fifteen minutes. I had to fiddle a bit with the number/thickness of the spacers. I'm still not satisfied with how quickly the throttle will close with the Throttlemeister dis-engaged. If I adjust it so the throttle snaps closed, then there isn't enough drag to keep the throttle open when the Throttlemesister is engaged.

I'll keep fiddling with it.

I didn't use the sleeve, either.

Gotta wash the bike today. There are SO many bugs plastered to the front that I can hardly see through the windshield.    :o

Why?  Bugs give a bike character, plus all the pretty colors.

Maybe I'll connect the dots with a few more bugs before I wash her!

You should see what my screen was like at night when I went through a swarm of lightening bugs...

The Concours can certainly use quite a few lightening bugs  :thumbs:  ;)

Had to think about the word a while.  Gotta love the interweb...  Your play on words was great and appropriate...
