I have been searching for weeks now for a set of clip-on's that are less than 7 degrees but all I see are 10 degrees or 6 degrees. I think I am right in thinking the stock bars are 7 degrees?
Anyone seen any like this for under $140 and know for sure what angle they are?
Thanks guys.

Here: 5 degrees lower than stock/standard. Or were you looking for higher than stock?

Whatever you need, always check Webike. They have the largest selection for R25/R3

The stock ones are not quite 7 degree, probably 5 or so. I'm assuming by saying less than $140 you know the Vortex are $140? There's a yellow/blue set on ebay that's like $50, it's a 1" rise, so only slightly lower than stock.

From eBay, these are the ones I've used the past 2 years on my track bike. I love them. The drop angle and front/ rear angle is fully adjustable. I was paying $60/ pair. I've actually had them fold down in a hard crash. When I'd pick the bike back up, just heave it back into place and get back on the track.

Hey guys, I am attempting to follow this thread. I am soooo new to motorcycling, I had to google clip-ons and triple tree. Can I lower the stock clip-ons? Not too much, just a slightly more aggressive tilt forward.
Please advise…Thanks!!!

Marquiess, those bars will orient your hands farther forward and downward from stock positioning, putting more weight on your wrists and elbows. They'll also cause your back to lean (hunch) farther forward. I love them on my track bike.

Thanks for your heads-up. I guess the biggest issue for me is how much angle there is. If I can alleviate some angle then I figure it might help. On the other hand if it doesn't help then I guess I will look for risers....and have a set of clip-ons for sale. :)

I find the lower the bars the less cramped,
arms and shoulders can be neutral while I remain fully tucked everywhere except braking zones when I lift my head slightly and gear down ready to do it all again.

These aren't cheap (over the $140 price you mentioned) but they would definitely solve the problem for you. They're also adjustable by rotating the bar
