08 CBR1000RR HELP!!!

I am having a problem with my clip on's on my 08 CBR1000RR. They are Renthal adjustables. I put them on and now I am having problems getting my throttle cable and brake lines not to hit. One time, I finally got them positioned so they don't touch but then the cables to the throttle hit the top of my fairing that covers the air intake which is preventing the bike from being able to turn right. Also they are so low that my fingers also are slightly getting pinched between the grip and the fairings. Is there a trick to putting these on that I am missing? Thanks for the help in advance!

The Renthals won't fit without hitting because the angle is off. The best you can do will be to try to find the most comfortable riding position and be aware that the cables will hit at full lock.

Even the Woodcraft or Vortex will hit.
The stock ones are offset a bit and I don't know any low aftermarket ones that will fit without hitting.
If you need stock replacement ones check some of the road racing forums like WERA.
Lot's of racers take them off and sell them fairly inexpensively.
