I was chatting about clip ons the other day with a fellow rider. The suggestion came up that the stock bars could be turned 180 or upside down to lower bar hgt. Has anyone done this with success? Any pictures
I have been sneaking around this board for sometime now planning out my "don't have yet" Monster and everytime I see the " Mr. flippy Upsidedown bar guy" come up... it just makes me chuckle... That's funny, I don't care who you are.
By the way Mr flippy upsidedown bar guy, how much clearence did you gain or loose in turning radius? sorry, couldn't resist.
Didn't lose any turning radius but if you look at the photo posted in the other link you'll see my finger 'tween the controls and tank with the bike leaned over on the sidestand. Plenty of room! [cheeky] I haven't touched the tank in any turns, not even walking it while parking. The bars are so wide to begin with that there's a lot of range from side to side. I suppose if I ever went down and the bars flexed at all I'd have a dented tank but heck ... I'll have bigger issues than that to deal with in such an instance.
