Just watch out with E/Bay...I do not like that place...but I know not everyone has bad experiences there.

I bought this pair of clip on bars for my Honda 750....



And I can tell you those would not work. To my surprise the lenght of the handles could not house the grip itself, much less the grip plus the brake caliper...{ignition switch / signal / high beam switches on the other side }... useless...a monument to cheap stuff....

I bought this ones lately, which I will install soon...Telefix fully adjustable Clip On Bars


I recommend Telefix clip on bars, fully adjustable on all axis. You can rest asured you will hit no gas tank, and you will have the very best taylor made confortable position for your hands / wrists.
Those fixed bars have no adjustability.....well , I guess, it is not the bars that are adjustable in those cases, the rider has to adjust....<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

just make sure that with the clip-ons you get you're still able to get a good angle on the fr. brake lever without hitting the stanctions. i bought a set of vortex clip-ons for mine and was unable to get the lever to angle down enough. so, i got a brembo mc and now my fr. brake is hard (feels just like my bmx bike now) and it looks way cooler.

How much do you want for the useless clip-ons?

Aaron, never thought about selling them, those are made for my CB750F forks, 37MM.

Let me know if you are interested, I can mesure the lenght of the handles so you can make sure it will work for you. The problem I had was that the handles barely held the lenght of the grips, no place for the master cylinder and the swith on the other side.

What bike do you have in mind??
