    @RJRinker, let me know if you want any others or more closeup. Before these I tried Woodcraft clipons - looked funny with the forks and the naked look, and I also tried clubman bars which were simply too uncomfortable because they were so far forward. Handling was great with the clubmans since my weight was down and forward. Then I found these bars and it's the perfect fit, IMO.

    Yea I been looking at all of them and yours seems like the ticket. It seems like it gets them lower, but forward as well so you don't tank tap. How's your clearances at full lock? Did you purchase it from that suburban Machinery website?

    I also like the looks of this woodcraft clipon adapter. Although I dunno if itd match up to the FZ6R as it's sold for the fz09. If I wasn't so busy I'd make my own adapter.. I do have a CNC an all.. ugh work work work..

    Yeah I spent several months and they're the best i've seen, IMO. I have total clearance at full turn, nothing hits on the bars to the tank, if anything it's a few inches lower than stock since the grips are level with the bar where it's mounted, but then also slightly forward. I rode it like that for about 8 months and really liked it. Just dropped the front end about an inch and it rides great now, the handling feels much sharper.

    I did get the bars from their website, I think it's a husband/wife duo and I emailed them asking if they'd get more made in the 7/8" and they had one laying around that wasn't listed and I got it. It's the only piece that when people compliment the bike, it's the only one they call out specifically.

    Btw, I considered the same clipon adaptor you put above until I found the suburban machinery guys on some weird Ducati forum.

    This is the first time I've seen this style bar. I really like it, looks like a one piece clip on
