I was looking for info on CC clip-ons. Should I just install them under the triple clamp or on top? On top would require the clamp to be moved down some. What would be the effects of this?

As for the rear sets, I had a piece called the resevoir bracket kit, but could not figure out where it would go. Is this kit needed on Monsters? I have it together with out it, but would feel better with peace of mind.

Re: Has anyone installed cyclecat clip ons & r

I've installed both... the clip-ons I installed underneath the triple... with a 2 1/2 inch rise it just looks better that way. No problems installing it above from what I hear, if you prefer a more upright position.

The resevoir bracket kit is for older monsters... I didn't have to use it on mine, either.

I really don't know what your 620 is set-up like, but I got adapters that bolt to the triples to accept the clipons on my S4.

The S4 has a different triple clamp and bigger forks.

Why did you take the brake lines off? I mounted the controls on the bars before sliding the bar into the riser. No line removal. I also use the 2.5 inch riser under the tree. They're great!

Thanks for the input, that makes me feel better. How about bleeding the brake? How long did that take you? I got started, but found I did not have a 11mm box wrench and could not complete the job until this coming weekend.
I was a first time bleeder, so it took me a little while to get the hang of it... the vacuum pump made it alot easier. Took me an hour.... trial and error. If you know how to bleed, it's easy... after that it only took me 10 minutes to bleed my clutch.

no, the reservoir brackets are for models that don't have the "more premium" remote reservoir brembo master cylinders. there are 2004 model ducatis with the "coffin" style master cylinders.
