LSL Sport Match Clipons

After a bit of creative cable arrangement, angling of clutch and brake lever (and the actual bars), these LSL clipons...


(50mm clamp, 5 degree down angle, weighs 600g)

...will make your STriple back breakingly fun to ride and nice to stare at for and hour or so while having a beer or two in the garage

Now those look nice! I keep thinking about throwing a set on for track days and spirited riding, but I do occasional longer rides, so I don't know if I could deal with them full time.

Ive adjusted the angle of the bars twice since taking that photo so ill have to upload a clear shot or two of the steering turned lock to lock. Steering has enough movement to be able to put the steering lock on so it hasn't lost too many degrees. The plastic end cap on the tube touches the clocks and the cable adjuster on the clutch hits the back of the headlights (not sure if this is a problem on the old style lights as the backs aren't as square). Did a couple of hundred km's today on different roads (motorways, twisties, etc) and the clipons have the usual good points and bad points. Got back home and my neck didn't hurt from the wind, position over the bike inspires way more confidence going round corners and makes getting your knee down easier, lean also puts ur ass further back into the seat so no ball ache from sliding into the tank when you mess up a wheelie, knees hurt, knees ache, wrists hurt a bit but not as much as knees, those bendy bits half way down my legs hurt... Actually there's a point, as there are no rubber bushings connecting clip ons to the forks like there are with the handlebars, you feel EVERYTHING. I put some bar end weights on but I might try some softer grips to see if it improves comfort. As its nearing the festive season and the kids will be wanting some imaginary bearded fat bastard dressed in red to bring them expensive presents, I think I'm gonna buy the LSL 6.5" headlight conversion before I sort out the rearsets early next year.

I like my renthol soft grips a lot, but there too soft so I buy a pair every 4,000 miles or so due to wear.

12,000 miles and some-days it still scares me.

nice mod. Why these and not another brand? How much did they set you back?

As I don't pay EU tax, £110.83 including shipping followed by £10.50 import duty when they arrived. I almost bought the Renthal equivalent but they seemed a bit too utilitarian compared to the LSL machined works of art (photos do them no justice). The true test was when I took the bike to work and most of my colleagues couldn't tell what I'd changed

I've been looking at some of the products from Apex Mfg.

http://apexmfg.com/products/category/view/11

The riser ones look extremely adjustable, but I wonder if I would raise/lower them depending on the planned ride, or just leave them all the way down.

Knowing what I know now, if I'd seen the Apex GP ones and had no intention of changing my headlight and repositioning my clocks I'd have bought them. They look like they'd solve all clearance issues

I was thinking that too, but I didn't see a 50mm listed when I looked earlier.
