    All, I’ve made my own version of the Rizoma CR bars on my site HERE for $185, but those also require the larger diameter $95 Rizoma bar risers HERE as well. Any interest if I make them plug and play for the V7/9? They would fit and work on the stock risers. Price would be $125 in black p-c.
    Pic below is of my 1-1/8” center diameter for any big bar bikes (i.e. Griso, etc). I can put them online if there’s interest in either.

    Yes. Would want info on any fadiddling required to fit ontrols and cables if any, it looks like maybe none? And some pics fitted on assembled bike would be great.
    I actually picked up some racer clip-ons but haven't fitted them because they look too low for my purposes, yours are a better solution IMO, and a good price point.:clap:
    Now, coupled up with a limited, numbered billet riser coverplate...

    If fitting these to a standard V7 model, you would just need the Racer clutch cable. Everything else is plug and play. We could even send them pre-drilled for the switchgear. I would need a few people willing to pre-order to build a set and show installed, else the ones shown above are going on my build.
    As to the riser/clamp cover plate, thoughts/ideas as to what you want it to look like? Anything is possible, but at a cost of course. The more orders I get, the more the cost comes down. 2-5 count would be painfully expensive as to CNC work. Post again.

    Predrilled is great...I seek out these new upgrades to do, but then appreciate anythin/everything that helps save me from myself and my tendency to make mistakes.
    Understood regarding coverplate. I was just thinking of one already available from M/G. Same as the one for Carbon but without the text and unit number. I've almost popped for it but ultimately held off due to price, so my willingness to pay may not be where it would need to be.
    While numbering may ultimately be overkill for item sold separately (but perhaps good for your builds), one plain or with an etched gtrx logo (hey, advertising) would have appeal for me. And the logo on the one fitted in the pic above looks great too. Perhaps more of the potential market will chime in.

    Thanks for the input. The price quoted is doable for you, yes? When would you be ready to put money down on a set?
    Custom CNC top bar clamps are possible, but we would likely need to start in the $150 range with about 10 people ready to buy. For my builds, great idea, agreed... but I need more people to buy the bikes first, as I upside down in my “investment.” So small projects like this is a financial distraction I can’t take on right now. ;)
    Based on the poll above, not looking like it's worth it at this time.

    Checking back for additional replies. I've been looking around for a used cable. I'm inclined to pony up after I finish my pending projects- filter (easy) and forks (first time-yikes).
