the controls on the thruxton are 7/8 not 1 inch right? from my understanding bonnies have 1" and thruxtons are normal 7/8. looking at ebaying some new clip-ons and dont want to be suprised when i get back home and they are too big.

also anyone know where to get cheaper-than-lsl headlight ears? nothing fancy just something to hold the headlight to the 41mm forks. i would use the emgos but they only go up to 40mm.

and one last thing...

another thing i thought about doing it was going through D9 for some gauge mounts and then buying a mini speedo. anyone know of a good mini speedo. nothing fancy just something more for keeping up with gas miles.

thanks for the help!

unfortunately for me there is no bike to ride where im at but there are camels to ride for 5 bucks....(not happening)

Yeah, the thruxton clip-ons are 7/8... if you have the '09 bars, I believe that is 1", same as the Bonnie, but i'm not 100% on that part.

The clip-ons are without a doubt, 7/8....

Check out MikesXS website for a good, inexpensive mini speedo. The polished aluminum headlight brackets from bellacorse.com are the ones I use and about $30. I drilled holes for the turn signals.

A friend of mine ( jhtjon) took a set of Thruxton clip ons and sleeved them to fit 1 inch controls . They work great but he might be selling them because he preferred bars . PM him and see what he'd want for them .
