coerce tank clearance

I am about to lay out some ching for coerce bars today, and just wanted to make sure there aren't any tank clearance issues with them on the 919. Anyone know for sure?

I don't know if anyone here is using that bar. I know that my Renthal Ultra Low's will hit if I angle the bar too much. The Coerce has a lot low rise than mine. Something like 55 mm lower.

Ort,
I'm on the Coerce lows. These are such an improvement over the stock bars.
Better handling, less vibes, and a slightly more forward position all lead to a better 919 experience.
When leveled in the clamps, the bar comes close to the tank...
roll them forward slightly, and you've got some extra space.
Roll them back and down like I like them, and you have to extend the steering stops on the frame... very easy to do... just JB weld a section of 1/8 allen wrench ( or 1/8 inch sheet metal) to each "stop" and this translates into approx an inch of extra clearance at the end of the handlebar.

And this won't affect my steering lock on the ignition?

1/8" spacer and the ignition lock will still work.

thanks for your help, Z. I just might get them, I was trying to decide between those and the Suburban Machinery 919 bars:

Anyway, I would be saving 100 bucks with the coerce bars, and that is significant. Good to know they will work.

I've still got both sets of these bars for sale - Coerce and Suburban Machinery. You can find the link and pics in the For Sale section.

steering lock ???? LOL... I don't think ive ever used it.

believe me those things are useless, I watched a demo at the toronto bike show of a "smaller guy" just reef the bars on a 99 firestorm and snap. If you lean the bike towards you and use the weight of the bike to help you with the leverage it will just shear the lock pin.

the demo was for an insurance company recommending more adequate security for your bike ie rotor locks or an alarm system with tracking. Bike's are very popular vehicles for theft in Toronto, with or without steering locks.

Well it gives me a false sense of security then, that maybe that fool that tries to roll it will be discouraged. At work I park in a parking garage right near the elevators, and theft isnt really a concern. I think it is really just habit.
