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.
