LSL Clip ons?

Anyone tried or use the LSL clip ons? Sato's are becoming harder to find, Kyle USA is out of stock. I'm about 6'3" so a little cramped on my RC, would like to get something fully adjustable and I can't afford $500 fully adjustable Mori or Sato rearsets right now.

I need both items from being hit a couple months ago. found a set of rears for 125 stock, and the clips ons for 200 would set me up to pay for the radiator repair, installation, coolant etc to get back on the road.

More work to be done this Winter time...

I'm 6'4" and use Woodcraft extra long bars, there about 1 inch longer then aftermarket clip-on bars.

So, I finally mounted the new clip ons. They look decent but I ran into a few issues. Stock clip ons have a groove in the clamp portion thst fits over the forks. On the fork itself there is a ring that seems to act as a safety catch.

The LSL's do not have the same inner groove machined into the clamp. Are other after market clipons the same? I am also going to need longer throttle cables to account for the longer bar. The LSL's also do not have a way to mount the bar ends. I plan on fixing all the issues and posting some pictures. They are nice and lightweight, the have a safety feature in the mounting for the bar itself, and they match my scheme almost perfectly. Overall thbey are my first clipons but not too bad to install. A hinged option with builtin fork groove and bar end compatibility would be best.

Do other aftermarket clipons address these issues?

lol Enzo, maybe the next pair will be woodcraft. I already drilled a small hole to allow for the plastic nub on the inside of the throttle housing to stay in position.

That ring has no use on aftermarket clipons, just remove it and be happy.
As for bar ends, just get some universal nylon plugs, strange they wasnt supplied with the clipons?
