Thank you for starting this.
Thanks, updated the original post!!I don't have an R7 but have been compiling a list, so I'll add.
I'm not going to link it because it keeps killing the thread, but if you check out Woodcraft Technologies website (they make a ton of parts) you should be able to find the various generic riser clip-ons that will fit the R7. The R7 has 50mm fork tubes so just make sure you get the 50mm clip-on size, they come in a variety of heights that will help you out. The main concern is going to be clearance against the tank and windscreen/fairing. So you may have to do a little experimentation with angle, placement, height, etc.This is great, thank you. I want to change my clip ons. The riding position for a commuter bike is too aggressive for me me.
Has someone changed theirs?
Looking at my R7, there's enough cable/wire slack and enough fairing clearance that you could probably go with 1"-1.5" riser clip-ons and be fine, but like I said above it might require some fiddlin'.Clip-ons are usually the bars that'll clear the fairing. Cables, wires and brake lines won't allow much higher bars either. I'm considering getting one of the other 700 models because of the better (for street) riding position.
Good find, I tried searching that part number to see if I could locate the Brembo model, but looks like Yamaha shares that part number with the MC assembly on some of their ATVs or something and it's completely different. Still on the hunt for a lever...I'm guessing one of the Brembo OEM levers fits, just not sure which.Yes!!! Thank you for this. I am in the process of turning my R7 into a racebike as well. I haven't found a brake lever yet but the whole master cylinder assembly (which includes the master cylinder, lever, resevoir) on Ron Ayers is (as of 09/13/21) only $171.00
Thanks, added!Not sure if you guys are interested in Crash Cages but I stumbled upon this company that makes crash cages for the Yamaha R7 while looking for more aftermarket parts.
They're called Impaktech Crash Cage from StreetBike Supply.
I don't personally do wheelies (Too afraid atm) but for the people who do wheelies or just like the look, there ya go
Do you ever get that lever? Mine bent a little, I'm trying to decide if I want to replace the lever or just replace the MC, have a more used standardized Brembo RCS lever on the bike and replacement on the shelf. Thanks.FYI - the Brembo MC on our bikes uses a 16mm piston. I ordered a 16x18 Brembo replacement lever from STG and will follow up if it fits.
Yep, didn't fit. I STILL have not found a brake lever that works. I'd be shocked if this brembo MC was totally unique to the R7, but maybe that's the case? I've tried a ton of them now...Do you ever get that lever?
