What size clip-ons does the 05 R6 use and what brands do you guys suggest? Are the expensive ones like Sato worth it?

50 mm I use woodcraft. I crashed and bent the bar and simply replaced it. $150 ain't bad compared to replacing a stock clipon.

You sayin it cost u $150 to replace the bar, or $150 to actually get the clipons?

As for the break res, i took a piece of flat alum, drilled a few holes all along the length, mounted it to the tripple, and then figured out where i wanted the brake res. Then i simply bent it where i wanted to, and ziptied thed res w/ 2 ties.. Pretty simple, and honestly it doesnt look that bad or outa place w/ the silver color of the clipon bars.. One more thing, you will prob need a longer length hose, and you can use regular fuel hose as its the same thing as brake hose. Also, all of this really only applies if you mount the clipons below the tripple.

I ran into that problem too. I just unscrewed it and zip tied it to the clipon bar. Its a race bike, I get full range of motion and it doesn't obstruct my view :)

Fuel hose is not the same as brake hose-it will weap if you use it.

I like woodcraft with the split design, plus they are a racer family so I want to support them :D
