Clip-Ons: 10 degree vs. 7 degree?

Someone school me on Clip Ons. I know the 7 degree will be flatter than the 10 degree. Does it make THAT much difference on your wrists, looks, comfort, handling, etc.?

These are 7 degree. I also kind of dig the offset. How will the offset affect the things I mentioned above....looks, comfort, etc.

These are 10 degree and I think the lower angle might be more comfy, but they have no offset.

It is right and important for us. Because there are more technology and more online help at the moment. Some time ago I faced more problems in my essay writing work and I made mistakes in my writing. So I started taking the help of site. With the use of this site, I learned more things for essay writing and now my essay writing work has improved compared to previous work. So I say, this time hasn't a problem any work, because online help is more.

What Ichiban said ... however - you also need to mock up the whole riding position - the relative position of feet ,seat, knees and arms to get a comfortable riding position. You can't determine the angle of the clip ons - height or anything else until those other ergonomic points are fixed.


I put "flatter" bars on my 996 and it made a huge difference in comfort. It felt like the stock bars were making me try to touch my elbows together or something.

But, it's different for everyone. No one can tell you what will work best for you. I remember years ago there were some BMW bars everyone raved about. I finally sat on a bike that had them and thought they were horrible...

EDIT: And now I just noticed this thread is seven years old, and it is a bot that dredged it up. Sorry for adding to the zombie postings...

DD - doesn't really matter how old the thread is, you can guarantee that the info will be of use to someone - especially the new blood coming through.
