I hope they work well... I know I hated the stock bars when I ran on the track this summer. And the way I ride I just like to be leaned farther forward than I am with the stock bars.

If this does not work out I am gonna try the monster bar...

I have to put my bike all back together first... 6 of my valves need shims... ugh! So that's tomorrow and then the clipons will go on whenever they get here. I will post pics

I was bidding on those too.. sorry for costing you a few extra $$, I stopped at $31 not knowing if they'll work on our bikes. I'm looking forward to hearing your impressions.

Good find! Can't see why they wouldn't work providing there is enough room between the top yoke and where the fork changes diameter. Going to be very well forward and low.

If they don't work out then the S4R bars work so much better than the stockers.

Good luck with the mod.

Si.

No worries I figured some other board members would be bidding on it

Can't wait to see if they work!

Nice! I didn't know they'd fit. If you could, definitely post up how they look and feel. I'm using a set of those "clubman" dunstall, thing, bars that'll do about the same. It's quite a different ride now. I like it.

Well i got them (man that guy ships fast!).... Its not gonna be as easy as i had hoped, haha... they fit... but the problem is there is not enough space between the forks and the headlight holder thing... I think I have a pretty easy fix for it though... Will require some removal of metal but I can make it look clean and it wont affect the strength of the headlight bracket.... So this mod went from the super easy to the some actual modding required... in other words... its not gonna be a simple bolt on but its not hard either. When my valve adjusting project is done I am gonna tackle this... Its cold I got time

Can you move the headlight bracket-thing down a hair? In my opinion, that might give you more room overall, as the Brute's got quite a bit of wires all pointing right where the headlight's gonna be. (If I'm imagining this correctly)
