Dirt Bike Bars?

I have dirt bike (Renthal) bars on my SV rite now. I can ride the thing pretty hard with them on there and I like the seating position. I have never ridin on the track with them on there. I'm looking for some advice if I should keep them on there for the track day on Saturday or would it be better to put the clip-ons back on.

I know its going to be a little harder to get low to get out of the wind, but its not like I'm racing, its just a fun track day.

I had a reply, but then I noticed that the title wasn't "Dirty Biker Bars" like I thought.

Don't sweat the wind. You're comfortable with what you have, so I say roll with it. Changing the geometry right before a trackday with clips won't help either. I ran the stocker bars earlier this year, and other than having a lot less feel on the front tire than some might like...I still had a helluva time.

Enjoy~

edit: Since you won't be needing those clip ons ever again, I'll take them off your hands. Let me know when to come by and pick em up!
