30 Bucks. I guess they are weighted but they don't look like anything special to me?

I think thats the purpose of the weighted ones. I guess it would make sense. Best thing about the aftermarkets is you can buy the replacement bars (lets say you wreck and bend them) for like $15 VS. replacing the WHOLE stock clipon being as it is ONE piece.

So what was hard? Taking the actual grip off, or the clip on itself? I need a new hose anyway, mine got a lil hole in it when I wrecked. I wanna get a clear one, I've seen them and they look good

taking the stock clip ons were pretty easy except for the controls. weird spots for the screws.
The grip was the hardest thing to put on
I bought new grips so i just cut a slit on the old ones and peeled them off. then i
laid some harris grip glue inside the new grip and twisted it till i got it all the way in over the throttle. then i straightened it out the twists.. almost knocked my bike off the stand during the process

I have never seen the clear hoses. I used a steel braided goodridge one that i cut from one the leftovers from my porsche brake job.

The clip ones are in gold. they look awsome

Yea, I'm probably gonna end up getting vortex clipons, barends and some new grips. But at this point I could still be dreaming b/c I dont know what insurance wants to do with my bike yet. Its a waiting game. What kinda grips do you guys prefer or heard good things about??

stay away from driven gel grips. I ordered the red. (came free with my pazzos) but the look like a neon pink one from a lil girls bicycle.

also, most aftermarket levers are designed to break away at a spot closer to the end of the lever which still lets you use them if you go down and it breaks. OEM levers usually have a breakaway point mid lever, which makes it near impossible to use once you go down and it breaks off.

and you can't forget the bling factor and the clicker adjuster that bignmz mentioned.

i have CRG's, and they are nice also.

seat time buddy. After a while you'll learn to move around easier and be less tense on the bike. Core training will help too.

Anyone heard of ApexMFG? 95.00 + Shipping I'm thinkin' about it. . . . . .

From a for sale ad.......

"Machined from 6061 billet aircraft aluminum makes these clip-ons ultra-light and strong for optimal performance. Available sizes are 43, 45, 48, and 50mm.

The bar has a fixed 9 billet angle machined in the end with 8 radial adjustable positions to ensure your perfect custom fit and fine tuning.

All fasteners are stainless steel. All pieces are anodized black with plastic inserts in the end of the bar.

Clip-ons are universal; there is no left or right side. Convenient two-piece design so you don't have to remove the upper triple-clamp. Product ships pre-assembled. Easy assembly for custom fit."

You may also try filling the bars with 00 buckshot. This is a trick I have used for decades with great results! Especially for street duty. You'll love the difference!

that sounds nice, but how the am i supposed to take off my OEM clip ons if i don't remove my upper triple?

for $35 more, why not just get a name brand that has proven itself to work? :dontknow:

especially on something that will be one of the first things to hit the ground when you go down, i'd go with the vortex one.

Yea, I have the same mindset as you on it but I figured if anyone had anything good to say about em, I'd get a pair. I'm in contact with Jav for the clipons
