Raised clip-ons, 2006 Daytona 955i

Lots of clip-ons with a bit of a rise on ebay, what do I need to know?

The Daytona is a great bike for Portugal in many ways, but the riding position is too radical. I was considering converting it to a higher power Speed Triple, but blacking out the appropriate bits is a) a hassle b) required, so maybe just raising the bars a bit would do the job.

Forks are 45mm diameter so something to accommodate those.
Consider whether your brake lines are going to be adequately long once you raise the bars and consequently master cylinder position. Other cables (clutch, throttle and electrical from switches) should be less concern but be sure to validate those also.

I've got an LSL superbike bar kit if you have any interest in that route.

Chhers, what IS an LSL superbike bar kit?

In the meantime, looking for 45mm raised clip ons with 22mm bars....

[edit]

Aha, yes, interested! What exactly have you got, and how much?

Sorry, I'll send pm. I just figured I'd throw it out there to try to help. I would appreciate the same from someone.

My view as well and I managed to get a locked thread pretty soon after joining.
The site administrators must have their reasons for doing this, so I accept that there are to be no parts requests in this forum. I was looking for a muffler to help someone else with their damaged bike, a harmless enough thing on other sites. But other sites are not packed with good information about the Triumph Daytona, so that is how it is!
The no access to Classifieds for 30 day rule makes it a bit difficult until that hurdle is passed. Now that I can access the Classifieds and see the rules, I understand the reasoning. Would it be possible to make the Classified rules visible to new members, even though the Classifieds themselves are not?
I seem to recall that going to the Classified section in that period did not bring up the rules, just a barrier or some sort?
