lowering the clip-ons
I have a nice set of Vortex cli-ons that don;t have enough clearance when mounted abov ethe triple tree in place of the stockers. After riding Kevin's Ducati, I realized how high mine are and also noticed that his bike wasn't that unconfortable IMO.
So I wanted ot know. Would lowering the Clip-ons 3" down improve my handling. I've never seen how the supersport guys are setting up their bikes. I know if I take off the ram air covers there is enough clearance. The vortex clip-on are also 1" forward. Looking at the ergonomics published in Motorcyclist, that would give my F4i nearly identical ergo's as the GSXR600, except my seat is lower (but my rearsets are closer). I always feel like on the track or in the twisties my arms feel kind of high, not quite awkward, but almost.
I was just wondering if there were any problems to consider when doing this. An I going to need a steering dampner with the extra front end weight?
What d oyou guys think?
