For those that have installed these, please post some close up shots. Their instructions aren't that great in my opinion. It tells you which one if left but then says they don't have to be installed that way. The throttle side just feels like everything is too tight. Almost like the line from the reservoir to the master cylinder is too tight. I've move the bar end in and out of the clip on clamp itself and just doesn't seem like it has enough free movement. I'd love to hear from others than have installed these. Also I thought it was beveled side up with the "W" logo at the top but that doesn't look right either. Any help you guys can provide that have done this would be greatly appreciated.

I can't imagine them being installed upside down, that would feel weird with the couple degree bend down intended. The Woodcraft W is just under and behind the top triple bolt. I made a DIY Motion Pro bar alignment tool. I know, it needs a bath. I hope this helps.

Thanks these are totally different than mine though. I have them on in a similar fashion the hash marks pointing up. But my bar ends go through the clip on clamp.

Ah, you went forward with yours. I liked the stock position, I did not want to get more aggressive.
I replaced the reservoir hose with clear Tygon, the stock line was a bit too stretched for my liking after the change.

Good to know it's not just me then. I just went with what they said was for the R7 I didn't know they made different styles. Oh well I guess I'll finish the job and hopefully I like them.

Is that bar slanted upwards? If so Id switch the left and right around. The W should be pointing upwards
That’s kind of what it looked like to me too. The W is pointed up though. I tried swapping them and that seemed to make them point up more. It’s really strange. I rode it last night and it seems ok, but definitely a dramatic change in riding position over stock.

You need to have them sweep downward if you don’t you will never be happy with them because you will put a lot of unnecessary pressure on your wrists and lose mobility when it comes to hanging of the bike
Yeah I already swapped them. It was actually the clamps were opposite of where they needed to be. Their instructions suck, why they couldn't stamp L and R instead of their logo and one single black and white picture in the instructions is beyond me. Either way they're sorted out now. Still have to figure out adjustments. I'd like the brake lever to be angled down more but have to swap like others the line from the reservoir to the master cylinder to make that possible. For now I'll manage then adjust later when I have more time.
