You're going to have clearance issues with the upper fairing. With just a set of Apex adjustable clipons set at 0 deg and against the bottom of the top triple clamp, I've had to move my switch pods to a less than ideal locations. Holding the front brake and hitting the starter now involves a strong pinky finger. But good luck with the change.

Agree. I couldn't get the clutch mc to clear, and so fitted a Magura radial version instead. This has a separate fluid pot.
And as said, the starter is now further inboard.

It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity
