Yep. I did.
As one of the first to hack up my bike to install 06 comfort bars on a 1000S along with AZ_Scott and couple others, I re-installed the original clip-ons.
I think it has to do with a couple things: (1) these bikes are more ‘track’ minded and (2) I got my fat ass back into shape.
The position is really suited for the track and, when at speed, the bike responds nicely.
They look cleaner and more functional at the track. I’m only 5’9″ and my arms aren’t long BUT I can see that the stock clip ons are the way to go.
Here’s a picture I took when I first did the mod. You can see the difference.
The left one is the ’06 clip-on at its max highest position.
The right one is the ’07 clip-on at its lowest position.
There’s a big difference.
I (re)like the original ’06 clip-ons.
