Aftermarket Clip Ons ~ Opinions

Sooo after my unfortunate event I need a right clip on. Figure I should go aftermarket for obvious reasons/ easily change out the bars if I go down & they are longer BUT I ride street quite a bit. Am I going to be totally uncomfortable on the street with aftermarkets? Or is it worth what I get out of them on the track?

Thanks

absolutely switch... there is nothing uncomfortable about them they are fully adjustable to what you want. Take your pick woodcraft if you want silver bars or vortex if you like black on black..

I'd go ahead with aftermarket clip ons. I suspect you'd get there eventually anyway. The increased adjustability is well worth it and if you have another lowside, repair is quick, easy, and chear. Some folks say they get more vibration from them, but I've not noticed an issue. I run softer grips it all has been fine.

If the vibration bothers you, pop one of the ends off, and fill the bar with ball bearings stuck in spray insulation.
