How does that 120 fit? What do you have on the rear? How did you lower it. Looks awesome!

Fits perfectly, no rubbing at all. The rim max size is 120, so it's ok from that side too.
It's not lowered in the rear, my tire config is Pirelli Sport Demon 120-70 front, 140-70 rear.
It was a little bumpy on the front before doing the lowering (no clip-ons), but now it's great.

i hope you realized this is talking about the clipons for the 250;

the picture you put up is not a 250 and also not clip ons.

You need to remove the top triple (the plate you see when you look at the bars... what the stock bars bolt to).

The big nut in the middle is 22mm. You'll also need to loosen the two pinch bolts that clamp the plate to the fork tubes.

You'll have to turn the front end one way or the other (don't remember which way) to clear the security tab on the ignition lock. Once you do that the plate will come right off.

You'll be looking at the top of the fork tubes. Slide the clip-ons down over the tubes, put the plate back on and there you go. Adjust and tighten everything. Go ride and then go back and tighten everything again.

DO NOT loosen the bolts that clamp the lower triple to the fork tubes or they'll fall out. This is not a disaster, but it's a hassle.

A note about lowering... that's done by loosening both the upper and lower triple and sliding the tubes up. There's more going on here than just clearance... it WILL change handling and make it sharper -- twitchier -- if you don't also lower the rear of the bike.

Clip-ons by themselves will not change the bike's handling. That's a function of steering geometry. You may FEEL a difference, though, because the ergonomics have changed.

You may want to consider rearsets or remount stock pegs with rearset adjusters too, because you're leaning forward more. Rearsets let you get your feet farther back. I find that a lot more comfortable.

I had Shinto clip-ons (adjustable for angle) mounted below the top triple but just recently moved them above and tweaked them to have a sharper downward angle. I'm liking the result... ergos are a bit better and there are no clearance issues. When they were below the triple they had to be set flatter than I like to clear the bodywork. The tradeoff is that the grips are now higher up. Ya can't have everything.

i have installed this woodcraft handle bars today and they look amazing but didnt have the time to try them out, but i have one thing that i am a bit worried about, do you think that by time the clip ons will loosen and make the handle bar slide down from the triple clamp, justa asking for the reason that they are holding on lock nuts, thx

I haven't heard of any issues, replacement bars are cheap though ($15.00 each). We usually keep in stock if interested in getting a replacement set.
