Clip on Alternative

Went to my local motorcycle shop last night, as i know they are a Rizoma dealer.
As i'm walking out the door the salesman throws me a catalogue to take home, which i might ad is great reading material for long breaks away from my pseudo wife, creating a master piece.

Anywho i remembered a post about clip ons, and came across something that Rizoma makes for other standard bikes i.e speed triple, z-1000 etc..

Since the 2006 catalogue does not show that they make them for the Brutale yet!! i e-mailed Rizoma last night to find out if they will be making them.

Very smart, we were thinking of doing something similar as Oicdn was asking about a similar setup a few weeks back. Next week we will talk it over

The adjustability would also be a big plus.

I think that Rizoma part is the biggest gimmick to date. Looka t the clip-on position, it's pretty relative to where the handlebar went....so your riding position didn't really change, nor was there really an advantage to switching. Do you atleast get the tool for the new stem nut??? Looks like you can't get at it with the wrench type, with enough pin insertion, but now you'll need a socket type...there's only one seller that I know of that sells the socket type tool:

And they don't reply to eMails, so who wants to be the guinea pig and send them money without hearing from them 1st?

I'm not sure if you get the tool, just thought that they looked cool, im not necessarily looking for a fully leaned over position, just slightly lower to add a little weight to the front end.
Do you know if ant body has looked at Helibars.

Then what we would need is an integrated Scots damper mounting!
