what year bike? on a 2g you'd need to modify the headlight brackets. you'd also need to reroute a bunch of cables. but otherwise it's a joke of a job

Super simple for the most part. Remove current handlebar and all controls (clutch/brake levers, switches, throttle, etc.), remove top triple tree, slide on clip-ons, put triple tree back on, position handlebars where you want (make sure they're symmetrical), put all controls onto the handlebars, and you're done! There may be some issues with cable lengths but you should be fine. When I made the change, I also put on new turn signals, a custom switch housing, and changed out my throttle.

I had these installed instead of clip-ons.


Positives:
  • High quality product
  • Good width
  • Sporty but not too aggressive position - good compromise between clip-ons and handlebars
  • Detailed instructions for install
  • Original cables fit fine
  • Fills the gap left by the handlebar clamp
Negatives:
  • Not as adjustable as clip-ons
  • Expensive
  • For track only and racing, lower / more aggressive setup might be better

I have seen it already. U described it well but 'cause of the negatives I decided not to buy it. I need something much more aggressive and adjustable for the track.

I don't about the 3rd gen specifically, but there often is. If you don't restrict range of motion the switch pods on the bars will hit the tank.
I usually glue or JB Weld small squares of aluminum stock to the steering lock tab on the frame.

I installed universal 41mm clipons under the upper clamp. No regulations available.
I just loved the results.
For perfect fitments, I made a new headlight support too, but it is possible to use the factory one.

Woodcraft clipons so you dont have to take off the top triple clamp. I tapped my steering stops on the frame and put in a 4mm allen head screw that was just enough to stop full turn without hitting my tank. It was that simple. YMMV.
