Clip-ons on the Brute...

Anybody done it?

I'm thinking of taking the clip-ons and triple off that 02 750 getting parted out and seeing how the Brute feels with clip-ons.

My concerns are clearance and the triple fitting. Aren't the Showas on the 02 750's 49mm??? So 1mm diameter difference in the triple, they should still work, as that's hardly a difference and atleast is 1mm SMALLER, so you can still tighten it down....

Also, with the Brutale having the intakes on the tank....will it clear?

I know alot of monster guys add clip-ons to the Monster and like the feeel, just curious if anybody else has done this...

I did this on a Monster and made a huge difference, especially at the track. Keep us posted. The idea of the Brute with a "comfortable" upright position is negated by the fact that it's a rack when it comes to any long distance so might as well forget the gentle ergonomics.

I was thinking about doing the clip-ons too. And awhile ago I posted a picture on the forum of a 750 with clip ons. I think I also posted the kind of clip ons he used. Look back 3 month or so and you should be able to find the picture.

The outside diameter of the Showa and Marzocchi are the same size. This is how the Mg triples fit all bikes.
