 Hi everyone , as a new owner of an ST1300  i find the bars a bit low, what's the experience of the Standard Helibar riser and the full bar kit? does any one in Australia have the full bar kit?

Yes the standard bars are found to be too low by most folks.  You’ll find a standard Helibars riser on a huge number of STs. I don’t have one because my ST has the police riser, but it’s become almost a standard farkle.
A man rides on his STeed, says “Why am I short of attention? Got a short little span of attention”.

You can call me Steve, with apologies to Paul Simon.

Risers, Screen and Seat seem to be the common trinity of "Comfort" farkles.

I fitted a bar riser 24 hours before the old block turned in front of me.

It made the bike so much more comfortable to ride. That, the seat improvement, and cruise control, & CB radio were my favourite farkles.
