Lock to lock? As in when the lever is all the way out and all the way in?

As far left and right as you can turn the bars. Make sure nothing hits the tank.

You can rotate your clip-ons in and out, your brake and clutch levers up and down, or both. There should be two bolts where the brake and clutch levers attach to the clip-on. Loosen, adjust and re-tighten.

Clipons may only be adjustable if they are aftermarket. I know mine were pinned into the top triple.


But yeah, full left to full right. Make sure the bars clear the tank and the fairing in front.

Well, that sucks. No worries, though. Things come up, and I'll try to lead at least one more ride before the summer is over. Hopefully you'll be able to make the next one.

Right now there are 15 on the list. Keep an eye on this thread, though. If someone drops, you're on deck. I'll keep everything updated until the day of the ride.

If someone wants to bring the proper tools I would be more than happy to set up/adjust lever, bars, controls, etc.

Always, unless you're competing in MotoGP or the Isle of Man. A less smartass answer is that it depends on you and your abilities.

You're a noob if:

You're not comfortable on your bike.
You can't go through turns as posted speeds without hitting the brakes.
You can't hold consistent lines.
You consistently look at the road in front of you instead of through turns.
You're not smooth on the throttle or brakes.

Basically you have to master everything you learned in MSF, plus a few more things, before you graduate from noob status. Some do it faster than others.

You have to be someone at 1? As opposed to being a nobody the rest of the time?

Is there any more space on this ride? If so I might join with my wife. So I would be riding two up. Thought this might be a good way to get her to riding.
