I am interested in getting a set of Cycle Cat clip-ons for my 97 M900 to replace the stock bar. On Cycle Cat's site under the description of the DBR-3s it lists NOT APPLICABLE for the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs. What exactly does that mean?

Thanks

I have an '02 M750. I'm not sure what resevoir setup your monster has but mine came with the "coffin" style resevoirs which are incorporated into the brake/clutch levers. I could not fit my cycle cat clip-ons with these resevoirs. The riser portion of the clipons would not clear the coffins. I ended up replacing my entire brake/clutch setup. I had to go with goldline brembos with the remote resevoirs ( an additional $250.00).

Nevermind.. I am a moron.

**IMPORTANT: All Ducatis with coffin-style reservoirs will also require Cycle Cat's master cylinder spacer kit, which is
part number PKHS031-02A, MSRP $40.00, MSRP $20 when purchased with a bar mounting system.
This kit provides extra clearance for the reservoirs which, otherwise, conflict with the riser.

OK then.. new question. Does anyone know who sells the aforementioned spacers? Motostrano and Motowheels both sell the Cycle Cat clip-ons, but there's no mention of the spacers I need and they haven't responded to my emails. I really want to have these in my garage when my bike gets back from the shop.

Thanks

"Coffins" are large rectangular boxes instead of the nice cylindrical reservoirs used these days. I'm not sure when they stopped using them on Monsters... as a matter of fact I didn't know they stopped at all.

Try Motowheels again if you can't get a hold of them email Cycle Cat someone there will help you.

I ordered my cyclecats from Chris over at ca-cycleworks and they came with the spacer needed for the coffin-style reservoirs. I didn't even realize i needed them when i ordered.. thankfully Chris did. Hehe. :)

I installed the DBR-3's on my 03 800. To incorporate them I used a spacer in btwn the reservoirs/master cylinder. Initially I used ripped cardboard and squeezed it in, but my mechanic instead placed an actual spacer for a more secure fit. Order the cycle cat's, just be creative. I'll add a flick soon.

Anybody have detailed pics of the DBR-3s installed? The Cycle Cat photo is kinda dim.

You could resize them...

I think the size limit is 400k.

My camera shoots a 1600x1200 image, it can be anywhere from a 500k to a 1.2M file. I usually resize at 40 - 50% and the image is still pretty good.

Maybe I should make this its own post, but how hard is it to convert from the coffin style reservoirs to the cup style reservoirs? The coffins are fugly!

Gman or who ever else knows:

What about the top triple clamp on the 02? Other then the $325 cycle cat one, are there less expensive options to install so that the handlebar clamp doesn't stick up after removing the stock bars and putting on the clip-ons? I heard you can have the clamp part ground down on stock top triple, but that seems extreme.

Any suggestions?
