Are the clip-ons everyone uses like these:

Or like these:


What kind do you have Freakinout? Any closer up pictures? I have seen the custom ones here, but I would rather just buy some...

I've got some generic ones. They do not look all that great and I had to modify them greatly. They also need to be about 1/2" longer to put bar ends on them (which I can't do atm).

I got mine off of ebay for like 30 bucks with a buy it now set of clip-ons. Good deal, although not nearly as high of quality as other clip-ons.

If you want really god ones, look for TOMASELLI clip ons. For me the most important is to have them 4 way adjustible.

Are they 37mm? Not sure if that is what our forks are. Any one that will fit that size and not interfere with the fairings, tank or gauges should work.

Thank you. I have seen your pics in another post too. I was thinking of the people that did woodcraft and things that were simppy purchased. If I try to make a set, I will die. Somehow, someway, I will kill myself...

Freaky has Woodcraft clip-ons.
I know he posted a pic when he put them on. You might just look in the post, or he might be nice and post another one. :D

I don't have woodcraft clip-ons, wish I did though.

Here are the ones I have, they are a generic set for 37mm forks, so who knows who made these guys.

They use different riser plates and bars on the older generation 500R. the fork is 36mm (I believe) on the old 500's, and is 37mm on the new ones.
