i have read in posts that it seems clip ons can be easier on your wrists for longer rides, how are they better/more comfortable?

-is there a benefit to using clip ons if stock does not give you problems?
-what are the other benefits and downsides to clip ons?

thanks for the info

Also depends on what you plan to do and want to pay. Sato and Mori make adjustable clip ons but they are $$$. Vortex and Woodcraft are fixed and I am not sure if they are better ergonomics than stock. All tend to hold up better in crashes and some are cheaper than stock to replace.

I had Vortex clip-on's on my old RC51 and they were a tad less agressive than the stock ones. Another good reason for aftermarket clip-ons, is if you crash your bike, all you need to do is buy the clip on bar if it bends, and changing it is a 10min. affair. With the stock clip-ons, you need to remove the upper triple.

I also had Helibars on my bike. While they are very comfortable, I didn't like them too much cause they sat a lot wider than the stock clip-ons and I much prefer the aggresive riding position of the stock ones.

Just loosen the forks and drop them down - no reason to mess with the steering head.
Huh? I though its quicker and easier to yank the upper? Just undo the stem nut and loosen the pinch bolts and out comes the tripple.
