I plan to install bar-back for my bike. Appreciate any recommendation on an online source and experience on the installation. Thanks.

Try http://catalog.ascycles.com/viewProduct.cfm?item_id=622172 A&S BMW. I have these on mine and they move me back about 1.5 inches and 3/4 inch up. Nearly like an RT. Just make sure you get an RT clutch and brake line because it is a big stretch for both of them.

I have Wunderlich Bar-backs, and they're great (with a little loktite on the left hex nut which love to vibrate loose).
But watch the brake lines if you have the servo equipped part-integrated brakes. BMW Australia wouldn't let my dealer or he Wunderlich supplier replace my brake line with the s/steel line supplied .. Story is the system is calibrated for the legnth and composition of hose, and you can substitute.
OH YEAH? ... but I still couldn't do it. Fortunately, on my R1150RS (2 spark), the original brake line reached well enough, as did the clutch line - I do keep an eye on 'em! I have the bars set about 3/4 of the possible rearward range. Much more and the increased movement at the handgrips becomes disconcerting.

I just installed a set from Bob's BMW.I believe they are about $95 but they come in silver.Moved back 1 1/4 inches and 3/4 up.
At this position you don't have to change any lines/cables.Just make sure you cut all cable ties first, so that you can work freely and make sure nothing binds up when putting new ties back on.Don't forget the Loc-Tite or similar product and just check everything after a short ride.Its made quite an improvement over stock position for myself.
