Anyone attempt to do this with clip on risers?

Bar height for clearance seems to be a critical issue. My goal is to open up access to the adjusters while also providing a more traditional sport bike style grasp of the front end.

Yeah I figured some one would bring that up.

That's why I specifically said I was looking to get access to the adjusters. I'm not talking about that fugly adapter plate setup.

There must be a reason why I'm not seeing a standard fork mounted option that would reside below the top triple clamp and rise up

The Woodcrafts work well and do not limit the range of motion/turning. They actually look pretty trick.

I, personally, went with a wider flatter bar. Somehow seems to work better for me and still puts me more forward, with more weight over the front wheel.

I just did the woodcraft clip-ons AMAZING easier turn in, more balanced, I'm more sports bike orientated so found the stock duke bars slightly too wide, too high and wrong wrist angle for me, The woodcraft clip-ons fixed all of that.

Woodcraft is top-notch stuff.

I learned yesterday that in our the local club racing scene, because the SV650's have all but died off, the "Middle-weight Twins" are now dominated with 790 Dukes. Woodcraft has all the crash protection and rear-sets as well. They are racers, they support local racing. All component parts are available separately - racers crash.

I was going to try the 890 bar first, but I can get over the mounting plate for a better fit and more fun at Track Day!

Just buy the clip on rearset combo for my 890r. I am really looking forward to the new bars. May I ask how tall you are? It鈥檚 my first bike for the street. I mainly spirit ride and track ride. I feel the wrist angle is terrible when In a crouched turn or at the track. Also the rear sets lack traction (stock) and are to far forward. Would love your feedback
