Thread: Clip On Clearance Issue

  1. #1

    Default Clip On Clearance Issue

    So I recently lowered the front end 1.5" and installed some woodcraft Clip ons with the 1.5" risers. I love the way the bike rides now but am no longer able to make sharp turns when I'm walking the bike. When I turn left the brake lever hits the front fairing and when I turn right it's even worse on the clutch due to the clutch lever being after market. When I park the bike I can't turn the front wheel all the way to the left so I can't lock the front forks with the key. Any body else have this issue?

    I have my aftermarket brake lever tilted just high enough to clear the fairing. My aftermarket clutch lever does hit the fairing though

    Extend the bars further out so that the the tip of the bar (opposite the grips) in almost flush with the clamp and rotate the controls. I managed to find a location that cleared the tank and fairing (I also have woodcraft 1.5" risers and bike lowered around 1.75". With the bars in that far you'll never clear the fairing.
