Ebay Clip-Ons

Has anyone tried Ebay clip-ons before? I was wondering if they would get the job done on the my 05 R1. I know that it would be more difficult to replace tubes on, but this is a street bike that doesn't see the track so I don't really expect to brake one (hope not..).

I was just wondering if anyone has tried them or knows anything about them and there quality?

Thanks!

-Michael

Yeah, I think that's probably what will end up happening. I figured I'd give them a shot for 60 bucks or so... Just curious to see if anyone here has already tried them and would put the quality questions to rest..

Just be careful tightening them...you can fk up the fork tubes Other brand tubes should work with them...they are standard

And I think you meant to say YET when you said it isn't a track bike

I run the renthals...

renthal is popular
Attack has a good reputation and you can take them on and off without dropping the forks or removing the top clamp
Graves is another common choice
lightech is always an option


For the money, I doubt you will beat the renthals...especially at the 130 price

How do the Renthals feel? Do they feel like they keep you at the same riding angle?

define angle....are you talking upright position are are you talking about the angle of the clipon to the triple? Angle is adjustable, upgright position they are about the same or are the same as stock.

Woodcrafts are great very cheap money (not ebay cheap, but cheaper than most). The upside to Woodcraft is the 2 piece clamp design...you can put these on and take them off without taking off the upper tripple...

How do these (or any) clip-ons look with stock controls? Does everything fit? Does it look long and goofy??

Pardon my ignorance as I'm still learning..
