The afternoon was all planned out... install the new cycle cat bar risers on my '00 900ie. I'm not a professional mechanic, but how hard could it be? After all, I had the instructions, tools, and a six of corona.

It was all going smoothly... removed all the controls off the stock bar, removed the stock bar, now onto the upper triple clamp.

There's a little hex bolt facing the ignition key cover... how in the name of Bruno Cavalieri Ducati am I supposed to loosen that? Is there a special shorty allen wrench or something? It's actually the frame that's in the way... and that piece is welded on.

Here's a pic:

Remove the ignition cover and ignition switch. Easy.

Or turn the front end to the right? Works on my S4, but that area looks a little different from your photo. ???

I have not BTDT, but I'm pretty sure you only need to loosen it.

I tried turning it... couldn't get the angle. Azmonster was right... had to remove the entire ignition assembly and then took a short 5mm allen wrench and was able to get in there.

Now I'm home free!

Thanks guys.

how did you mount the mirrors?

just over the bars or using inside adapter? Is inner diameter of clip-ons the same as stock bar?

I used the inside adapters... I would have like to use the bar end sliders, though. Not sure if the mirrors will fit over them.

man, that stock upper triple clamp is ugly with the handlebar bracket removed.

I plan on fabricating some sort of mount to go in that spot.. probably for a GPS or some other gizmo.
