ZX-10R handlebar adjustment

I wonna move me bars out and away from the tank to give a wider, less cramped riding position, but there appears to be a locating stud? between the Tripple tree clamp and the bars themselves.

So before I take all this apart can the stud be removed or can I just grind it off? ....clip on bars are £80ish .....so if I can just move round the existing bars then this would be massive bonus 

Cheers in advance :smile

it looks like...

these clip ons have 'cut outs' to allow you a choice of positions around the pegs,so I'm assuming the ones for sale over here will be the same.(these are from the USA)

Bit confused KC

I thought the bars are held in place with 6mm shouldered allen bolts? sorry if I have the wrong end of a stick?(probably)


Just take the 6mm bolts out, then you can adjust them anyway you like(but don't forget to tighten them up or you're in the shit)

Cheers kc and oldish

Nice one kc, that's all I wanted to know before I took it all apart.....that should save me a bit of dosh as I didn't want to buy clip ons until I tried moving round the existing bars  :smile:smile:smile

Oh

I think..

..It's possible to swap the clip ons, left to right, for a flatter, wider position, which raises the elbows and opens the shoulders..might be worth a try.
