Spiegler LSL Bars

Ok i got the LSL Spiegler kit and so far the kit is shit. Nothing seems to fit correctly and the directions are as worthless as tits on a bull. I got parts but no instructions on where they go. Also the bolts that bolt up the ignition to the new tripple tree where the wrong size. To top things off they only sent one brake line in the kit(guess they figure everybody has the stock brake line setup). Now my question is how do i know what length the new lines should be for the new bar? Has anybody done this conversion and know what the measurement is? Thanks in advance for the help.

You must be a fellow KTM rider. Sorry to hear about your kit. I hope mine is in better shape than yours seems to be. Recently ordered a Spiegler Superbike Bar Kit for my 10R. I thought Spiegler was suppose to be one of the better products. Bummer. Mine sure cost a bunch, but haven't received it yet. Suppose to still be on a boat on the way over. I'll let you know how it turns out. Hope you get yours going.

Yeah i got a 525sx for the dirty stuff. I called Spiegler this morning and they hooked me up with what i needed to finish the job and gave me a good price on the stuff. I should have the other brake line tomorrow morning and hope to have it installed after work tomorrow evening. I'll post up some pics of it when i'm done.

Whatcha mean on a boat? According to the guy at their shop they are in Ohio.

Spiegler said they were on their way from Germany. Hence the boat comment. Did you get the superbike bar kit, or the riser/clip-on setup? Mine is an 08 btw, what year is yours?

Ohio had massive flooding somewhere on the Ohio river, But...LSL is a German company (isn't it?). Actually I thought Spiegler is German, with a USA branch.

I could be wrong about everything though

Exclamation

I own an 05 and have the superbike bar kit. It did come with awful if any I remember instructions but I put 2 and 2 together and figured out what went where. It is one of the best mods I have ever done. It gives me comfort,super control and it looks way different than anything else that everyone else is riding.

Mine is an 05 also. On your 05 did the plastic around the windscreen pop up after raising the windscreen? Mine is jus a bit and i haven't figured out how to push it back down.

It came with some funky brackets that push the screen up so that your handlebars clear it. I guess it did push up a little.
