Clip on's for the 9'er?

Has anyone tried clip on bars on the 919? I'm wondering if they found it awkward or just plain will not work because of clearance issues?

Trying to alleviate some of the pain I experience in my shoulder and it seems that the straighter my arm, the more comfortable it is for me. I need to either go forward or down with the bars and I can pick up the f4i clip on fairly cheap. If you know or have experience with this setup, please let me know.

There may be clearance issues with the tank. I'm minus the steering stop and my clipons do hit the tank, so I can't say for sure. Regardless of clearance they completely change the feel of the bike, so take that into consideration. If you like how the bike feels I'd look to swap bars first.

I've got the equivalent to the ultra lows and the stock bars were way to high. I don't mind the change in feel, if anything it probably gives it a sportier feel? Since they are so inexpensive I think I'll give the stock f4i clip on a shot and see what happens.

If I wasn't so damn old and falling apart this wouldn't be an issue! ;-)

anyone else with opinions on this or suggestions to try?

Yes I looked at them, but I'm trying to do this for less money. They look nice and have more reach like I want so they are a back up plan for the clip ons if they don't work.

What is that top triple off of? I don't see the bar mounts so I am assuming its off another honda.

I think there's a few more 919's with clip on bars here, seems that I remember other threads and pics.

Ripper,

I just got a 9r to ride to work. The stock bars had way too much pull back. They felt really weird to me coming off my MX bike. I installed Pro Taper Carmichael bend bars with their universal adapter. I moved the grips in about 1/2 an inch to leave room for some bar end mirrors. I love this setup. The 9r now feels almost like a big supermoto bike.

those are some pretty nice looking clip ons. If i didn't already have ultra lows i might do them....assuming they were a little cheaper. 360 is a bit high for handle bars in my book.
