Clip ons...???

What is the reason for buying clip ons? Weight savings? Is it just the fact that you can change the angle that they are facing toward you, to get more leverage. Why can't you do that with stock clip ons? Thanks in advance.

Re: Clip ons...???

you can mount them underneath the triple so you can lean forward more, make the bars longer to get more leverage to make the bike lean over easier and also because if you crash it takes 3 mins to replace the bar instead of the entire clip on.

the reason you can do that with stock clip ons is because the base is angles and theres one bolt hole that has to line up with the triple
