Top Bridge won't seat fully
I have a 2001 RC51 and am trying to replace the OEM handlebars with a set of Renthal clip ons. I got them on and adjusted and tried to reinstall the top bridge but it won't seat fully. I can see the old handlebars sat much lower on the forks and the stop rings are holding the clip ons back. Do I need to remove the stop rings or is there a trick I am missing. Thanks for the help.
