NOT SAFE! Killer deal might be right. Not much of a deal if they aren't safe. Buy the proper clip-ons.

After reading your guys' comments I have taken them off and will instead buy the Woodcraft/Driven clipons. With that said, which of the two is preferred?
Also, does anybody want to buy a pair of Vortex 37mm 7 degree clipons? lol.

I have Apex clipons on my CBR. They're adjustable in every way possible.

Those are the right clip ons for your bike but they are designed for track use and you don't have the bike setup for that. The Woodcraft with risers will do what you want.

To make these work I would have to lower the front forks, but to keep the geometry even couldn't I just lower the rear by about an inch or so? Just curious as to what the proper setup would have to be.

You don't want to lower the rear, usually race bikes have the forks lowered and the rear raised, like on my race 250

If nobody snatches these up, I might try to mount them again by lowering the front. Could I then just buy some raising links to bring up the rear to compensate for loss in height in the front? I plan on doing a GSXR shock swap soon and I've heard that it lowers the rear a bit so I'll likely buy them anyways.

Are you going to swap the rear(swingarm) too?

That looks pretty sweet! Is that off an r6? And those forks too?? Either way, I don't think I would go quite that far though that bike looks sick!
With that said, is there a thread about a swingarm swap?
