The Superbike clipons wont fit, unless you fit Superbike forks. You will need a 50mm clipon. I dont have a pic of mine but I have Vortex ones on my 800

Give a pig a fish and he'll eat for a day, give a pig bacon and his relatives arent safe.

those are st4s forks / the same upper tubes as a monster so no mods
the valving in (all monster/st forks)them was drilled round stock

they were replaced with 999 oem kits now they really work

now they are on this bike

I installed riser clip ons from a Sport Classic and replaced the triple clamp with a SpeedyMoto clamp. I like the way it looks and the rise is nice but what a pain in the ass to mod all of it to the bike. I am making spacers for the masters and new brackets for the headlamp currently. Just one more step in the ongoing saga of Monster Madness!! I will post a pic as soon as I take one.

My Buddy bought an Sie back in October with clip ons, I BELIEVE they are vortex. I'd be happy to check. In any case, I LOVE the way it looks and rides with them, so much so that I've decided to buy one now too, and I never liked Monsters.

I prefer the clips ons actually. I've got mine mounted above the triple. Complete with SBK front end.

You'll need to consider brake/clutch line and throttle cable length/routing. Other than that it's fairly easy. I had Vortex clip ons when I had my Monster...

I put Suburban Machinery bars on upside down and they end up pretty close to where most clip ons are. Plus I was able to keep the bug screen on if that matters.

As another data point:

The MH900e has "monster / ss" forks with 916 clip-ons. Ducati shipped the bike with shims between the fork tubes and the clip-ons. The shims are simply 1mm thick pieces of aluminum.


Personally, I think the SBK clip-ons are horrendous: they've caused long term nerve damage to my wrists. So I use helibars instead.
