adjusting height of clipons
« on: April 08, 2017, 07:28:37 PM »

when I turn the handlebars left or right, they rub against the bodywork and scrape away at the paint. how can I adjust the height so that they don't rub?

Are they stock or aftermarket?

I don't really know anything about that brand, but I'm going to guess that what is really rubbing is not the bar, but one of the controls, like the cables from the brake or clutch lever, is that right?

You can start by moving the bar clamps up to the bottom of the top triple clamp. You can probably also rotate the cables so there is more clearance. You can move the bars in, or out as far as is comfortable for you. You can move things around as much as you want as long at you don't get binding in the cables. Make sure that when you turn full lock left or right that the throttle still snaps closed. Truthfully though, you might not be able to remedy the problem completely, but you can probably improve it.

You're right. It's the controls not the bar (thanks for the correction). I'll play around with the positioning and see what happens. Thanks for the feedback. Look forward to riding with you guys again in a couple weeks at NC bike.
