Those went out on Twitter the day of the event.

You mentioned some bikes may "require the removal of the upper triple clamp." Huh? How does that work?

Has your friend considered a set of apehangers? They'll take all the strain off his wrists, and move it to his shoulders and back where it belongs.
baaaaaaaaa! yeah, I love it when people buy sportbikes for the look but complain about comfort. that's why they make standards. a sportbike w/ 3-4" risers looks silly IMO.

And once you cut the tube, your rise is now fixed correct? Not really that "convertible' of a product.

Nah. I have a standard (a Z750S) and a sportbike (a ZX10R). And even with 4" risers, the ZX would be nowhere near the same ergos as the Z. I can't even put a small tank bag on the ZX with the normal clipons, because there's not enough room between the top of the tank and my chest.
