Woodcraft Clip-Ons with Risers Kawasaki Ninja 300 2013-2014
Reviewed on Ninja 300 race bike
These were mounted on a ninja 300 race bike for two main reasons - to get the bars into a more performance oriented position, and to allow easy access to the adjustments on the top of my forks. (I have K-tech cartridges installed)
These did the job, but not without a couple issues to resolve first. I needed to buy the Woodcraft 1-1/2"+ spacers so that I could rotate the bars back to get a proper angle. Without the spacers, it felt more like a flat drag bar setup.
The other thing I had to do was strap my Galfer SST line in place on the riser with a zip tie to keep it from hitting the dash at full left lock.
After all that, the bike feels awesome at the track.
Pictures include as installed and with the OEM bars in place to show relative position as compared to stock.

Good, but expensive and hard to install
Its a good quality product that works really well, but install is a pain and it is not at all cheap.

Easy Install, they look great
Easy to install on my Ninja 300. If you want the grips closer to the forks, the clutch switch will hit the clip-on riser, so there is limited adjustability as far at that is concerned. Other than that I really like the end result.

Great look and great ride.
Installation is not bad as long as you read the instructions. Makes for a great riding position and gives the bike a high performance look.

Multi combo Winner!
Combining clip ons with rear sets makes my little 300 feel much nicer in the corners. Not too bad to install apart from the brake cable having to be rotated which can be quite scary to think about. Not too bad for me though because I have a mechanic in the family. I recommend buying a triple tree cover plate, I am still looking for covers for my fork tops rather than pre load adjusters.
I'm thinking of the black bars though as I am not a fan of the silver.

Great if you don't have an ABS model
Bought these for my ninja 300 ABS. Revzilla said it would fit my bike and it did...kind of. A lot of modifications needed to be made. There are YouTube videos of people who had no problems but I'm assuming it's different for each bike. I had to purchase a new brake line because the clip ons would hit my dash and the stock brake line was not long enough for me to move the brake reservoir out of the way. I had to move the brake reservoir otherwise the clip one wouldn't sit right and the brake line would be stretched too far. After replacing the brake line, everything worked out fine except the brake reservoir was still in the way.

Changes the feel of bike, a must have for all 300s
The clipons completely changes the feeling of the bike, it is a must have. Installing it was easy, just don't strip the bar end screws (they have lock tight). The brake line also needs to be adjusted and moved around (zip tie) so it doesn't hit your dash. May need to bleed your brakes after.

Great product. Well made, easy to install. Great design to get the bars lower and as far forward without interfering with the stock bodywork. Got these to replace a bent stock car. We will see how they hold up to the nest crash.
