Thread: Woodcraft Clip Ons

  1. #1

    Default Woodcraft Clip Ons

    I installed Woodcraft clip-ons with 1.5 inch risers and have ridden with them for over a week now. I waited to post because I wanted to test them before commenting on them. They will not install under the triple clamp because of our clamp's design. Therefore the forks had to be raised just over 1.5 inches. I had reservations doing this as I feared it would affect the geometry too much. Thus far, I have experienced no headshake at all. With that said, These clip ons are awesome. They look great and the bike feels like a totally diferent bike. The stock bars are great if you want a sport-tourer or the comfort. I ride 60 plus miles daily about 90% interstate travel. These clip ons give you a more tucked in perch that keeps you out of the wind. The quality of craftsmanship of these is great and the customer service from Woodcraft is awesome. I originally ordered 2 inch risers because I wasn't sure if anything lower would clear the fairing. There was still some clearance so I ordered the 1.5 risers. Total cost plus shipping was $191. They are worth every penny. I deliberated long and hard between the Apex and these. The Apex appear to have more versatility as they are adjustable. However I liked the look of the Woodcraft. Thanks to Dakinechick and all the others who posted about your clip ons. Enclosed are pics. If anyone has any questions just ask. Enjoy!

    Very nice.
    You got the front end down for better cornering and a nice set of clipons installed in one shot. It looks great with the risers removed. Where did you get the fillers to plug the holes?

    Thanks for the compliments. I got the plugs from a local hardware store. Check out the screws, washers, etc. aisle at your hardware store. They shouldn't cost more than 25 cents each.

    Looking good. I lowered my bike too with a lowering link and 1 1/4 down on front. Feel good. The bike feel more sable with a lower C/G. Gotta do the stand sometime soon...

    Thanks. Yeah the low center of gravity of our bikes was a huge selling point for me.

    not to highjack, but can you lower the front without lowering the rear and gain stability?

    I was reluctant to lower the front only, but after reading from many sources who've done the mod I gave it a try. At first I had FZ1 bars tilted down and just lowered the front a little bit at a time. After no issues I took a chance on these bars and lowered it to it's current status. The bike is much more responsive in the corners and I've experienced no head shake. I don't have the link, but the FZ6 forum has a thread that covers this in great detail if you're interested.

    I don't know that you gain stability, but you do gain ease of entry in to turns and a more responsive bike. IT doesn't loose any stability when you do this either. There are a couple articles linked here on the site and lots of info on lowering just the front forks an inch or two and gaining some performance all with zero negative effects. Just take you time and measure measure measure to insure they are lined up equally. Its and easy mod that takes a couple mins and worth it for sure in my opinion.



    Those Woodcrafts look great. Dam nice touch. The only negative I ever get about the FZ6R is the handlebars. They look like an after thought.....like they said awww crap we forgot the bars now what.
