Clip-On How To Choose?

I was going to order a set of clip-on to keep incase and when I go down again... In the process of looking at a few differant brands I find some companies offering a wide variety of options(35,37,3841,43,45,46,48,50,52,53, and 54mm). What does all the variations in size do? Is there a differance in brands if so, what? Why do you like one brand more than the other?

I think the Woodcraft ones you can take off without having to drop the forks. That's a plus.

correct me if im wrong here, but the sizes you listed would be the diameter of the forks. my sv is i think 43, and the gsxr is i think in the 50's i dunno.

im stupid, so wait for verification on what i just said, but yeah...
search for your bike's fork diameter and get that size for your clipons.

also, some companies like i think vortex and woodcraft have replaceable handles so that you just have a $20 part to replace and not a whole new setup

Thsoe number having to do with the size of the forks. Yours being an 03 Gixxer-6 (assuming stock forks) then you would want a 45mm set. FYI Gixxer 7 and 1K are 50mm. Brands are up to you, but I like Woodcraft 2-piece one so you don't have to take the top triple off.
