Keep at it. You will get it.
How about cutting the stock bar ends in half at the rubber bushing. That would center the hand guard bar over the lever.
How about using a spacer and a longer bolt to bring the hand guard bar further out from the clamp. It looks as though cutting the bar ends will bring the hand guard bar inward, thus creating more space. you might not need the spacer and longer bolt.
Again, you will get it working.
Thanks guys, you motivated me to give it another shot.
Good idea, I think cutting the stock bar ends would work for lever clearance. Didn't think of it because I was hoping to avoid affecting the stock pieces.
I went to try out how it would work with bar ends of the correct length.
The clutch side almost works! The stock bar clamp pulls it into a bit of a weird angle.
And the mount of the clamp to the bar isn't flush, though I may be able to force it:
The brake lever clears it with the spacer, but the master cylinder forces it below the level of the lever:
Stock clamp wouldn't sit anywhere near here.
The bar clamp is really designed for a straight bar. They claim on the packaging to have modified the design to fit around large master cylinders - unsuccessfully apparently.
I'm stumped again. It seems that even with better clamps the installation would be dirty.
