Hey ya'll,

So after trying some different handle bars I'm interested in trying some Woodcraft clip ons. I called Woodcraft and they said they do have some for the 18' GSX-S750 and I'd just need to measure and figure out what rise I want. Looking at my bike the stock fairings around the headlight and the mounts for my Puig Windscreen look like they would be in the way. So I've discovered I spend a lot of time going fast on the highway tucked on my tank and the handlebars are horrible for this. It feels like you're actually reaching up for them even though you are not in reality. I know there will be more pressure on my wrists and hands when not tucking but I commute 180 miles twice a month (75 mph speed limit, NV & AZ are nice :) and with clip ons I would be able to get a more comfortable tuck. I would like to find a happy medium as the bars I have tried didn't work for me.

Anyone have any experience with clip ons on the 750 or 1000? Tank and fairing clearance? Cable routing and clearance? Also, I measure my forks below the tripple tree (where Woodcraft says to install clamp) and I keep getting different measurements on my micrometer. I think the tubes are somewhere between 49 and 51 mm. Anyone know exactly what size they are?

Also, I just sent off my ECU to Dano's to then send to Woolrich to derive a bin file for the 18' GSX-S750 ECU's that are currently not available. So I should have it back in a bit and the bin will be unlocked for anyone else to purchase (without Dan having to send ECU off to Woolrich). I look forward to giving you all a report on the flash.

Thanks,

JJ

JJ,

Please be specific on which bike you're talking about. This is a 1000 forum. There's no law against discussing other bikes, but if you're asking for specifics (such as what's the fork tube diameter) make sure that you're very clear on the model you're talking about. You mentioned both the 1000 and the 750 so I'm not real clear at this point.

That being said, I just went out into the garage and measured the fork tube on my 1000F just below the upper triple tree and it's 1.966 inches, which translates to 49.94 mm rounded to the nearest hundredth. I'm calling that 50 mm. :)

Sorry about that. I have the 18' 750. Perfect, that was the most consistent measurement I was getting (about 1.966") but I wanted to make sure.

Hey JJ,

I owe you a HUGE apology, dude - I just saw that this is in fact the 750 discussion forum. My bad, and I owe you a beer sir!
