The beast left me stranded today. Went to shift into sixth gear and felt as thou it was half way in between. Attempted to shift down but even though it felt like it went through gear it was not moving. Fingers crossed it is something clutch related and not the transmission.

Ok well I bleed the clutch and there wasn’t any air in the lines. Next I took apart the slipper clutch and it appeared the clutch may have slipped and stuck in place. I then cleaned everything and made sure all was in tolerance and installed correctly. Problem solved for now hopefully this doesn’t happen again. No way I would have all the tools on me at the time to do this on the side of the road.

Got some pretty nice clip-ons coming in from the UK. I finally gave into the urge to replace the handle bars for a lower profile. I am pretty sure it will look better, but hope that it doesn’t come at the price of comfort. May take a little while for them to get here but I’ll post some pics when I get them on.

Interested to her how this goes. I just replaced the handlebar clamp on my 796 for a lower one off a 1200S.
If I change again it'll be for clip-ons. But I have no idea what to look for: 2-piece, straight, 7-degree, risers, etc...

hate to say it but you’re going to hate them. I give you two months before changing back. I had a similar set of clipons made by woodcraft and at 6’1/185cm (I have a longer upper torso), I couldn’t deal with the excessive forward lean. I found a set of Convertibar clipons which solved all my issues due to all the adjustments they provided. And what I meanby forward lean is that the bars are in front of the fork leg. Good luck!

The clip-ons were a little struggle to set up ergonomically, but after hours of moving things around I got them fitted to my liking. I am pleased I went with the brand STP race products. They are similar to the renthal clip ons with the adjustment markings but for half the price and all the quality.
