why do you want them?

Something about the angle of them restricts full range of motion, Adjust them pefectly and you could still end up either hitting the upper fairing or pinning your hand against the fuel tank. It not easy opperating the clutch, gas or brake with your hand pined.

i would have to agree with michael (maskale)

clip ons are generally made for easy replacing of the bars if you should crash....which makes it convenient for trackday riders and racers.

the angles of some of them can be pretty aggressive as well. not sure if it would be comfortable putting some miles on with it

maybe it is bike dependent. my cbr also looks like it would be hard as to put clipons on when compared to the r6. dont remember about the old cbr but the 07-08 cbr has the stock clip-ons that rise a little to clear the fairings. it looks like it would be a pretty tight fit with any clipons that would be lower than stock.

if you already have them, try them out, they are easy to install, just check your clearances BEFORE you ride. With the way the RR's barends and weights are made you can install them into the Vortex bars even though they are not made for it. The barends and weights will help cut down on the vibration, the increase in vibration will be noticeable. you will need to drill for the throttle also.

What year RR? I've got stockers for 03-07 if you should want to replace with OEM. I've got Vortex on my race bike and clearance is an issue. In my prefered loceation I can't fully turn left without applying the front brake, and if I need to go full lock to the right it gets tight on the tank skin. Sorry I don't have a pic.

Might consider a trade if your used vortex aren't too beat up. The bars only of course. The 07 takes a 48mm base, the 03 is I think a 44? The 03 is the old style conventional forks, the 07 is inverted.

Take him up on the stockers, you'll be happier if you use your bike for commuting or regular street riding.
