Removing the stock top triple clamp is easy, but it’s a good idea to put a rag under the socket before you crank off the steering-stem nut, just to insure you don’t mar it. The stock ignition-switch holder is cast into the stock top triple clamp, so I picked up Driven’s bolt-on holder (an $80 option, since most folks that race the RC won’t retain the ignition switch) and transferred the switch over. Drilling the aluminum clip-on tubes to accept the stock switch clusters requires careful measurement. I measured twice but I still ended up drilling the holes too far outboard since I didn’t factor in the length of the stock bar ends. Woops!
