    Woodcraft clip-on handle bars

    Put my new Woodcraft 43mm clip ons on today. The bars are great, well built, 3-piece design, machined, anodized, the works. I recommend them if you're looking for clip on bars. They do make the steering very heavy, but responsive and solid.

    I also recommend that you mount them as high as possible on your forks, as I have mounted mine in the middle of my triple-trees, lowering my controls by about 10" from where my Renthal bars were. Problem is, they're so far down I can't see out my helmet, and I want to goose it at every intersection because it feels like a Lightcycle.

    try dropping the tubes down like Chrly and I did...

    the stock masters will just hit the buckets, but the bump stops will work, and not hit the tank.

    having lower shocks adds to the drop.

    I'll run them over my trees when I lower the bike... Right now I've got them as high as they'll go. Kinda cuts down on steering but it feels great on the freeway.

    Feels great on the highway? I have them mounted as pictured above on my drag bike. I rode it back and forth to Bike Week and about died. Was hurting for days after!

    Woodcraft also makes a taller version. Those probably wouldn't be too bad for longer rides.
