I am doing a front end swap you are correct but I am in the middle of assembling everything and the bike is suspended off the back of my porch. I am still waiting on the handlebar risers and brakes. Here is what I have so far

The clip-ons don't fit the honda 919 but do fit 929 and 954 forks. They are set up for a 50 mm fork. Sorry I didn't have better news.

I started off with a 2003 Honda 919 with around 12,--- miles on her and wanted to go with a front end swap to make it look more aggressive as well as give it a sort of cafe racer feel. Also with all the functionality that a modern motorcycle has to offer.

After disassembling the front end of my stock 919 I wanted to go with the 954 set up. I didn't really see a lot of differences with the Rc-51 and the 954 except a little bit of different measurements. But that didn't stop the build. I bought...
954 Forks
954 Rotors
954 Brakes and front lines
954 Triple Tree
954 Front Fender
Woodcraft Clip-ons 50mm
Aztec 8 headlight mount with turn signals
All factory mounting hardware for the fender, brakes, rotors.
The 954 stem was to short and was missing around 3/4 of an inch so I went to a machine shop and they pressed out the previous stock 954 stem and made a new stem from aluminum. I decided to keep the stem solid to give it stability unlike the 919 and 954 which the 919 is steel and the 954 aluminum but both are hollow. I used all the stock stem parts and bearings out of the 954 triple tree. I used all the stock 919 throttle, clutch, I just had to do a lot of maneuvering to get everything to fit.

Problems: I ran into some problems when putting in the new stem. I am not done with the bike yet because I need to install a new bottom dust cover for the triple tree. When I was trying to get out the old 954 stem I ended up bending the stock 954 dust cover and tried to bend it back to get it to fit. When I got done with the build I noticed I was not able to turn left, only when I applied a lot of force was I able to turn left. I noticed a lot of rubbing at the lower part of the triple and noticed that the bent bottom dust cover was the root of the problem.
Lifting the bike was a little bit of an issue because I didn't have a roof to keep it under when I was doing all the work. I ended up buying ratchet straps and lifted it up off the ground off the back of my deck. I might have noticed the rubbing issue if I was able to lift if off the ground from under the frame instead of lifting it up right under the stem. Then I would have been able to check the movement of the handlebars

Getting all the cords for the throttle and clutch were a little hard to get all in place but with a little bit of tinkering it all came together.

The gauge cluster isn't attached yet and I am thinking of just zip tying it to the upper triple I just don't want it to look ghetto. It doesn't have mounts on the upper triple to secure it to so you have to be a little creative and try to work something out.

I wasn't able to use my steel braided brake lines from G and G because they were to long so I used the stock 954 lines so with the brakes and stock lines I think everything will work out nicely
I was going to buy handlebar risers but decided to go with clip-ons because the (in my mind look better). The body position is really aggressive and you are leaning a great deal. I like the look and feel but until I replace that bent dust cover on the lower triple will I get a really good feel for the bike. After I get the new dust cover on I will be sure to tell how the bike rides. Gooooood times

Another issue I encountered was the oem honda 919 ignition attached to the 954 upper triple began to bind with the stem lock. I ended up having to ground it down with a file so that it would stop binding. I filed down both the back of the ignition and the actual steel stem hole that the lock goes into. Just another thing you should keep in mind if your doing a a 919 to 954 front end swap.

Good luck with the swap, it took me some time to get it all done but you will be thrilled with the result.

The Renthal Bar is the lowest bar that Renthal offers. Its a great bar perfectly straight with low miles use on it. its the 7/8 bar. So to answer your question, it is the Ultra Low.
