Anyone did a clip on conversion on a 2015+ V650, love the look and wanting a sport bike feel. Maybe using woodcraft clip on riser plate would it fit on standard riser.
Like many here, I bought my V so I could sit upright and ride all day in comfort. I added 2” risers to get the bars even higher for when I’m standing.
If lying on the tank like a squid is the goal, you should have bought a Ninja.
Dave, I am only giving you a hard time because of your posts on the subject of changing the bikes ergonomics. The OP wants a sportier riding position. You prefer a cruiser riding position. Both choices made by both of you. And yes, you have created more of a 'cruiser' ergonomics with the changes you made. Just add some highway pegs and you will be fully there. :grin2:I’m going to emphatically say “NO” to the cruiser line of thinking. And to clipons as well...
I went more with a supermoto feel with my Versys 650, but with the flat seat could slide back into touring mode. I kept the forward slant so I would be in position to maneuver the curves.My response will be slightly different - I'm not after doing EITHER, but I do believe in whatever-floats-your-boat, so "have at"....

I have 5.5in fork sticking out sure don't know if 2wheeladdict do. Sunday rides, I drag knee everywhere and scrape my pegs. :guilty:Try some Armor-all on your seat. It will help you slide back and forth between race and touring modes. Also, you got 5.5” of fork sticking out? That is apparently the hot ticket for sporty riding.
“Supermoto feel” on a 400+ lb street bike. How cute. Did you also trailer it to your Sunday rides?
Just tossing some back your way... :^p
Oh my no wonder it's called a Versys a versatile system... Oh my goodness, and yours looks like a street glide.
That wouldn't work at all. Then I would be on the tank all the time with the slant in the seat! I had the seat upholstered with grippy material so I wouldn't slide. Man, I wish the Versys was four hundred pounds. I would still own it if it was.Try some Armor-all on your seat. It will help you slide back and forth between race and touring modes.
