Have a 2008 xb12r. I can't find these things (or their functional equivalent) anywhere. Any leads? If not, any DIY was of achieving the same result? What about picking up another standard clamp and welding the two OEM's together?

They stopped making them for the Buells. The next best thing I'd say would be the Convertibars.

I installed a set on an 1125R. They may not be as spiffy looking as Heli-Bars but they work great and provide a wide range of fitment which Heli-Bars cannot provide. YMMV.

Convertibars don't work on a firebolt, but they do on 1125 models.

These will get your hands into about the same position, and the installation is pretty simple and clean:

Ping me at American Sport Bike if you want some more pictures of them installed. They work well.
