Where's best to get a set of these uppers for my 2016 XRX?

Also I'll need to pick up a 18" extension bar is this one suitable - 18" bar

Guess I should have done this before black friday and maybe snagged a bargain  :138:

Cheers
It is hard to beat sportsbikeshop.co.uk for service, I have ordered many items of them over the years. I ordered a new Jacket on Saturday and got it on Monday and I live in Ireland. https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/418983  The  customer reviews even mention this forum.

 :0461: currently they're £171.95 + possibly free delivery (dependent on location). Cheap for the protection and peace of mind they provide! :002:

+1 for that, although in my case I ordered with success from https://www.sw-motech-shop.co.uk/ for my 2018 XRT

They don't seem to show live stock levels on an item which is what I like about Sportsbikeshop, if they show it in stock and you order it you get it pronto. I used to use an Irish supplier for SW-Motech but I waited two to three weeks for everything as nothing was stocked. It's not a criticism of the local supplier, it's hardly surprising given the market size that's just the way it is.

Correct, I called and they were super helpful (they told me there were getting stock in that day so I ordered and they shipped them straight out the next day). I always call if stock position is not shown on a website. I can't remember now why I didn't order from sportsbikeshop as they are normally my first choice, also really good with returns I would add (I always order one size up and down in gloves for example so I can get the best fit).
