SWATT clip-ons, couple questions

747 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  eaglefrq
Using factory SV front end I've read the 2.5" rise clip-ons be position approx. 1/2" higher than factory S clip-ons, is this correct? I know longer throttle cables would be a good investment, what about brake and clutch lines? Do they have enough slack to extend 1/2"?

Does anyone have pics of 3.5" rise SWATT clip-ons on an SV with factory front end? What exactly is the maximum rise over stock?

What is the downward angle on these, compared with stock?

Here are some pics that may help you eyeball heights and angles:

Standard S top triple with clip ons:

My 2.5" Swatts installed on my stock naked triple and forks:

The first Swatt pic kinda shows the height of the bars compared to the top triple.

Good luck.

I ran the clutch cables to the inside of the fork and I had plenty of room.

The brake line will reach, but I loosened the clamp under the fairing and managed to pull the line about .5" up to give me a little more slack.

Here is the only picture I have for comparison to see the angle difference, it's not very good. I like the angle, I don't think it's bad at all.
