ok...I've measured the bar height and its 3.5" from the triple clamp to the bottom of the handle bar. The other thing that is important to me is that the rox rises allow the bars to go up and forward. With all these fixed setups the taller the bar mounts, the further backwards they go.

there are a couple of pictures here on my flickr photostream

I may have consider a mount that has the clamps in them, like the renazco one, or maybe Rbott can engineer something similar...I'm sure it can happen. If it's possible to make all that, surely making a top clamp is possible.

Ryans setup has been installed

Hey,
After some delay due to the craziness of Xmas and trying to ship stuff to me here at the bottom of the world, Ryan's bracket and mounting kit complete with KTM PHDS bar mounts, and scott damper arrived.

First thing I noticed besides the decent packaging was the quality of all the bits...shiney, polished and professional...they all looked so pretty :-D

So, once I finished my dinner...I skulked out to the garage and fitted all the bits. Considering there are no instructions, you do have to have half a brain to work out all the screws but this really wasn't too hard. I did however not want to use the KTM Torx head bolts and opted for hex head as it just makes any adjustment or repair in the field easier...but thats a personal preference and I happen to have them in my workshop.

The precision of the alignment and holes etc, was truly precise and sometimes things that are of such high accuracy can cause issue with bikes and equipment that has had a few years if wear and tear...but again, no issue.

The only step in the installation that caused a bit of thinking and some extra work was trying to fit the pin bracket around the key switch unit ,as the frame and key assembly wouldn't easily allow the bracket to slip over due to binding against the top part of the trellis frame. All that was required was to remove one of the two bolts that hold the radiator overflow bottle to the frame. This allowed more room for the key assembly to slide down, which meant the bracket now slips over the key unit and fit through the frame. Ryans kit supplies the now longer screws to reattach the key assembly and pin bracket...nice!

I trimmed the plastic shroud that surrounds the key with side cutters, as it now has a supporting bracket sticking through . As a side note that even with the bracket around the key assembly... it still allowed room from my 12V accesory port that is also tapped into the plastic shroud right next to the key..so again very cool.

All in all the unit is awesome and works perfectly.

Thanks everyone for you help.
