Damn, now you're really testing my memory...I think it's either a 32 or 36mm but I can't remember and I'm a few thousand miles from the bike right now to check:dundun:
well i severly doubt its a 32, seen it post up a couple times, older R1s were 36mm cant see them changing it..Damn, now you're really testing my memory...I think it's either a 32 or 36mm but I can't remember and I'm a few thousand miles from the bike right now to check:dundun:
You're absolutely right, but I figured why not just in case down the road I want to try and lift them up more for some long distance use.love the apex bars i think the 3inch or alittle overboard for what most of us want...you can easily get over a inch on std adj clip ons
Yup, the quality alone is worth it, but the function and looks are damn nice as well :thumbupaight! well my stockers are off! not that bad a job..
gotta shave off those nasty niples on the plastic casings
but i'll have to do that tomorrow..
will post pics when done.!! i'm so gonna love these! they were well worth the wait!..
that is exactly what i was thinking and now looking at the whole setup I'm sure I made the right decision, its not just the ability to raise more if desired, provided you can get all cabling issues dealt with.. but that riser spins on the bracket as well so you can reposition them in any one of a hundred different ways.. it opens up a whole other level of adjustability... if you have broad shoulders its ideal! you can bring'em closer to you, you can increase or decrease seperation & actual angle of the bars for your exact comfort.. & i dont mean mimic your desired position.. you can match it exactly..You're absolutely right, but I figured why not just in case down the road I want to try and lift them up more for some long distance use.
yah man, like i said, i considered the Helis years ago & couldnt get passed the cost / adjustability factor.. i didNow i wish i hadI bought these instead of my Heli Bars a couple years ago.
Yes, I thought about that after the fact. But since I didn't need to adjust them anymore I just left the brake hose above the throttle cables and everything works great!only difference in my setup is i re-routed the brake reservoir under the throttle cables.. gives you much more room to adjust exactly where you want the bars to end up..
i'm sure you found this out by now... its a quick little fix... I didnt have much trouble at all making it all fit as it should.. I will not be needing longer cables.. I can already tell
everything is in a much better position.!! i cant wait to test these puppies out..!
Want to sell the Apex bar ends to me?The stock bar ends will not work with the Apex clip ons since the stock are screwed on. I did get the Apex bar ends and have since swapped them out for some Rizoma ends. But any universal fit bar ends for a 7/8" bar will work.
And as for the steering damper, no modifications were required at all. On the 09+ the damper isn't mounted to the clip-ons.
sweet, what was there..?I'd have to find them first; I'll look tomorrow. Funny enough I just came back from Bowmanville, Ontario this weekend...was right in Toronto at the airport.
