It mounts on the tank for the passenger to hold on to when doing stoppies. It prevents the passenger from slamming forward into the pilot and busting your cojones against the tank.
From the number of positive reviews this item has, it would appear that sometimes it works well.... depending on what bike you have and particularly the location of the gas cap. However, I can only speak from my experience using it on a Ducati 998. First of all, when the 2up bar is fitted to a 998, it is NOT possible to refuel. Which is very, very inconvenient. Secondly, the gas cap position on a 998 is relatively low, which means that the passenger has an awkward wrist angle to grip the 2up handle bar. It seems to be relatively well made, although it is heavy and expensive and it's hard to recommend to Ducati owners that own a similar bike. Bottom line is that this seems to be a great concept, but the 'universal' design means that fitment is compromised on some bikes.
Excellent design for 2UP riding. No more passenger pull and push on throttle or brakes. Makes passenger experience more fun when hard on the throttle. Install was fast and clean. No clearance problems with the gas cap like other reviews I have read. Check out my pics....oh...got it deleivered in two days...free shipping...thanks again motorsport!
I put this on my 09 r6s it was a great buy for the fact my lady has something firm to hold on to when breaking quick. But the fitment was great until I tried to open my gas cap and I couldn't open it with the bar on. now its pretty annoying that I have to now eather trim the inner circle of the handle bar and pay to get it repainted or buy a new gas cap. witch you cant really do so because this bar mounts with 5 bolts not 3 like the after market fuel cap has. I love the product other then the fact the gas cap cant be opened while its on the bar is on the bike.
When I ordered this 2-up bar, I was expecting a cheesy/flimsy metal bar with some garbage grip attached to it. What I got was the exact opposite. Starting with the packaging, it came in a very nice box, upon opening everything was set in a foam insert much like you'd see for a new firearm. The bar itself is very rigid, and it comes with extended screws and allen wrenches to attach it to your tank. Installation was a piece of cake, the only pain was the mosquitoes that were eating me alive since I did this at night. The grip on it is well set and firm but comfortable. They even included a PSR sticker, but even that was of great quality. The sticker comes on transfer paper and is the company logo with individual cuts for the olive branches/boarder. Again, incredible quality and well beyond my expectations. If you ride 2-up on a regular basis, this is an awesome investment for your passenger to be more comfortable, and the quality makes it well worth the money! It also does not look bad, I was expecting it to look horrendous once attached.
We love it!! Riding 2 up is something we enjoy. And this makes the ride much more relaxing for both of us. It's easier to hold on when accelerating and during braking I don't have to put so much of my weight forward.
