Woodcraft Clip-ons coming soon

So I called Woodcraft and they confirmed they have a set of clip-ons coming for the GSX-S this fall to winter. I think I might be the only looney on here that wants clip-ons but Incase anyone else is interested I thought I’d throw it out there.

Thanks for the heads up. I have the Renthal Fatbar Street Low on backorder but this is really tempting. I don't imagine clipons would be much lower though else wouldn't it hit the tank? Any pics?

No pics but they said to call back in a week or two for more details. The tank would be my big concern. Curious how high of risers you’d have to run to get a good compromise between low bars and tank clearance / turning radius. Almost wondering if a GSX-R tank would fit?

You are not alone. It is very interesting and tempting.

Any update? Renthal Fatbar Street Low rolled back to zero leaves just enough space to not squish the thumbs at full lock. All it needs is a little more sweep. Hoping these will do the trick.

hey everyone, i thought i would share that i contacted woodcraft and they are developing something, but not quite specific to the GSXS1000, but they are going to work with me to develop something for us. he is using me as the guinea pig for R&D purposes. they are going to send me some clipons and i will need to take pictures, check clearances etc. if any additional parts need to be made or anything they are going to send me the parts to make it work and come up with an end product

If they can make clip-on like the MT/FZ09 for our bike. It would be nice great.

After doing some track days I actually have a difficult time getting comfortable hanging off the side of the bike due to the angle of the wrists. I have rizoma bars but still similar angle to stock bars. If they were angled back a little bit more I think it would make it much more comfortable but I’m not exactly the most “flexible” guy out there so maybe my old body is a problem Tank clearance would be a major problem with clip ons I would think. Let’s see what they come up with.
