Exclamation Need a solution for BREMBO RCS clearance...

I just installed a Brembo RCS on the stock clip-ons.
As I'm sure, most of you already know about the adjuster hitting the dash when the bars are turned all the way to the left.

If I were to get a set of Woodcraft 48mm clip-on with no rise, will this fix the issue?

From what I remember, some people were going with an RC51 or an 07+ 600RR ignition starter to give them more room on the bar.

some guys that run the rcs with the stock setup just dont go lock to lock, that just means that 3 point turn becomes like 5 or 6. Thats what i did before my bike had track glass.

^ Bike is strictly for track, so I'm not concerned about rubbing on the fairings...
I don't want to break the adjuster if I turn the bars too hard.

Yeah true on not needing to go lock to lock on a track bike, however what I did was add well weights to the limiters so I wouldn't damage anything while going lock to lock.

Can you expand on that a little? I can't really picture your set up.

I currently dont have access to my bikes at the moment. But I stuck wheel weights on the frame where the forks meet at full lock to limit its travel.

So...... I'm guessing you didn't want to go this route?




From Zack600's build thread

Zack600 Build *UPDATE* Ohlins ,Galfer

Edit: Just noticed he was running a/f clip-ons too. lol I know somebody else did the ignition switch for sure though to remedy the clearance.

What about the throttle housing and the cables?
Is it a direct bolt on or do I need to purchase the throttle housing separately?

I have an 07 and the rcs19, what I did was move the starter and ignition to the inside of the handle bar. Worked for me.

that would work but i want the switch to be within reach of my thumb if something unexpected happens like the throttle getting stuck or worse.

even with clip-on bars the damn knob still hits, it's impossible to put a remote adjuster on the RCS with our setup.

Just add a bolt to your stopper so the bike wont have as much lock to lock.

I have brembo MC with woodcraft 1.5" rise with slight issue at full lock to the left, but had the no rise before with no issues. Riding position is the reason I went to risers. I bet 1" risers would be tits...

Another option is get tape weight's like used to balance wheels and use them as stoppers.

Thanks!

I ordered a standard set of Woodcraft 48mm clip ons and the Brembo RCS adjuster no longer hits the dash. BUT, the stock clip ons have a 1" rise so the standard Woodcraft's allowed very little clearance with the ram air covers.

I will exchange them for 1" rise clip ons and see if that will make the difference. I'll report back with my findings.

Hope this thread helps out anyone whose looking for a solution!

We had the same problem when we bought our backup endurance bike
Bought an 19x18 so both the A & B bikes have same parts
Since levers are different we have to stock fewer parts for crash repair running same MC on both bikes

PLUS the friggin RCS doesn't bump the speedo !
You can set the RCS up with clip-ons to not hit but if you crash & bend the upper fairing stay you could be in trouble with the RCS hitting again

My advice - sell it & buy a 19x18 !
spend the money saved on clip-ons

:-)

Oh - it's also easier to run the TMV (brembo style) remote lever adjuster on the 19x18 on our vintage 600RR's
No room for it with the RCS

61 and still having FUN !!
