    Wanted; Aftermarket Top triple Clamp 09' Firebolt

    Not having much luck with the usual suppliers. Looking for new/used without built-in bar mounts so I can use clip-on. Thanks

    You are looking for a "Heli-bar". Good luck.

    Am I? Looks like these are risers. I want to get lower.

    Ahh, didn't know that. I don't remember... Is this on a Firebolt, or you want a Firebolt upper?

    Is the fairing going to clear? Can you use a Lighting upper? EBR 1190? I have one I could measure.

    I bought an 1190 upper from Liquid. $80 and it's too wide. I have plenty of clearance below the levers. With the stock set-up, I need to rotate my levers down so they clear. Lower than what I usually run. Track bike only. Yes, Firebolt.

    Why won't fork clamp (43mm IIRC) clip-ons fit below the stock 'R' upper triple? They would be about 2" lower.

    ^^^ What cooter said! Cut off the "ears" where the stock bars mount, and add clip ons under the top triple.

    That's probably what I'll end up doing and cooter, they measure 54mm

    I could be wrong and it could just be the pic but your top clamp looks as though the left fork tube is slid up higher than the right.

    Thanks for keeping an eye out. The left side is .005" out measured with a set of calipers.
