Vortex Handlebar Clip Ons

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? SHOULD I GET THESE TO LOWER THE BIKE IN THE FRONT OR THE TOP TREE HB MOUNT? IF I GOT THESE THEN I CAN REMOVE THE TOP CLAMP ON THE BUSA AND IT WILL SHAVE SOME LBS OFF THE BIKE, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THINK!

There's not that much weight to be saved there. You'd have saved a lot more going with a full exhaust IMO if that's your goal.

Some of those work, others hit the instrument panel at full lock. It depends on how they machined the mount.

Are you just wanting to raise the bars and chanf]ge the riding position?

Vortex does not make bars specifically for the Busa, only has the same i.d. as the fork tubes.

i am looking to lower a little 1-2 inch no more but the handle bar clamps they make with the larger diameter holes are exp, i thought that if i got the clip ons they would lighten it a bit and i would not have to buy that bar clamp! ?

Give Patrick a call. His advice is usually free.

CLOSE TODAY MONDAY AND SUNDAY!

I AM JUST LOOKING TO LOWER THE BIKE A BIT , AND THE HANDLE BAR CLAMPS THAT GO ATOP THE TRIPLE TREES ARE NOT TO MUCH 160 OR I COULD BUY A TOP TRIPLE CLAMP THAT REPLACES THE FACTORY TOP AND THE HANDLE BAR CLAMP( 269), OR THEY SELL SPACERS TO PUT UNDER THE FACTORY HANDLE BAR CLAMP, (I DO NOT LIKE THE SPACERS),

DOG BONES I CAN GET ALL DAY LONG, CHEAP BUT THE CLAMP IS WHAT I AM LOOKING AT !
