How about mounting on the wheel nuts? Too radical?I love'em! It is a big change, though. I guess it depends on want you want to to do with your bike. I usually use the 650 for rides that are less than a few hours and try to find roads I can have fun on.
If you want to do road trips, or just cruise for a long time, clip-ons aren't a good idea.
Also not sure if there would be clearance issues with the stock bodywork.
I did have a pair of Renthal low bars on before this, which bolt right into the stock handlebar risers.
The clip-ons required a custom speedo mount. The Renthals are a good option if you just want to go a little lower. If you wanted to go a lot lower without the custom hacking involved with clip-ons, clubman bars would be an option, but again, may have clearance issues with the bodywork.
One other crazy option is to mount something like the Renthal low bars upside down. They'll be low, but not as low as clubmans.
Yeah, it's made for 7" round headlights. It actually mounts to the headlight brackets. It's an Emgo viper fairing, you'll find them everywhere (ebay, amazon, etc.)Where did you get that front fairing? I have wanted a beefier front end but haven't been able to find anything. I'm assuming that fairing comes with the round hole for the round headlight, correct?
Yeah, that would be much appreciated.The side fairings are stock with more plastic "welded" on (melted and epoxied), then sanded and painted with truck-bed liner, which mimics the original texture pretty well. The gauge mount is custom. Just some 1/4" plastic and a couple bolts IIRC.
I can take pictures with more detail if you want when it gets warmer. I'm in Michigan so it's gonna be another month or so
For sure, let me know if you think of a solution to that. I'm waiting for the spare side fairings I ordered to come in the mail so I can attempt to do what you did.
Matty, I would get rid of those side crash bungs mate, anything more than a light low speed fall and your engine casings are likely to be broken at the lugs. Seen it on this site and others and on different bikes with similar set ups.
