HHMM to look dorky with the molded risers it takes 2 beers unles you forget to order the extra dohicky part because of the coffin resivoirs.. Go with cycle cat under the triple clamp.. takes maybe 30 min tops.. but don't forget to order the dohicky thingy type spacers...iF YOU FORGET IT WILL TAKE WAY MORE BEER!

1. take off pos battery wire (screwdriver)
2. unplug gage cluster
3. remove gauge mounting thingys (Pliers)
4. Loosen/ remoive triple clamp bolts (hex head ratchet workes great.. but L allens work
5. Slide on risers
6. Replace triple clamp (note cable positions are where you want them before you install clamp)
7. fiddle with getting the risers bars etc. where you want them
8. Use WD-40 to remove the old LH grip
9. Find a friend with Air comprssor to re install it....blow air under to slide grip on...once air bubbles are out the grips are permanent
10. You might need to loosen the banjo bolts on the resivoirs to gert the controls where you want them (watch your paint brake fuild bad (HAVE EXTRA FLUID HANDY IN CASE YOU NEED TO BLEED THE SYSTEM.)

OH CYCLECATS ORDER THEM THROUGH CHRIS UNLESS YOU CAN GET THEM AT WHOLESALE

Did I forget anything....

Seems bad it isnm't really!

I agree. Definitely the Cycle Cat DBR-13. Worth the money. Completely adjustable. Easy to install.

xsr71x hit pretty much everything. It will be the little things that get ya... mainly the brake line positioning and such. If you get the Cats from Chris at CA-Cycleworks.. he'll probably remind you about the coffin spacers.. they were 20 bucks.

When you get around to adjusting your brake lines and loosening your banjo bolts.. do yourself a favor and keep lots of clean shop rags handy as well as a bucket of soapy water. Don't wait until after you splash brake fluid on your tank and fenders or you'll be sorry.

I cut off the risers and filled the holes with aluminum then painted them.

I also painted the clip-ons because I felt like it but they come in several colors.

Thanks! Here's another question. Can you just buy a triple clamp to replace this, and then use any clip-ons you like?

If your interested I just pulled off a set of 50mm clip-ons (red racing style) to swap over to 53mm forks. They can be set low or I have the risers for them also. I'd sell them cheap since they are doing me no good now. How low do you want your bars?

ducpilot: If you haven't sold these clipons, I'd be interested in snagging them from you. I could use a set to replace some truly whacko bars the previous owner installed on my 900.
PM me and I'll send you my tel # and we can work something out.
btw-Your PM isn't working

Cycle cat sells a boootiful tripple, but not for the new frames (yet). I think they got a new one to work from. Maybe they'll release something over the winter.

I've got a machinist that has made a design for replacement tripples as well. The idea is to get something good looking, but much simpler and consequently less expensive than CC does. We are going to rip a tripple off a bike over the winter for final measurements and prototype. I can't promise any schedule on this though.

forgive the ignorance, but what are you refering to when you say 50mm compared to say 53mm that ducpilot was refering to? And yeah, I still want that bracket. Wish I woulda grabbed it before you left!! PM me a price on that.

The top of the fork tube at the upper triple and clip-ons is 50mm on Monsters and SS's, and 53mm on Superbikes. If you upgrade to SBK forks, you need 53mm clip-ons.

Hey Fu<kface, after observing your Holloween photo, I have to ask, are your arms long enough to reach clip-ons? Maybe some pull back ape hangers would work better.





Just fu<king with you.
