With the stock clip-on, where the brake line on the Brembo RCS19 mounts you end up with the banjo bolt contacting the fork tube. Even with a single line, I couldn’t get the lever down to where I wanted it. You can certainly just set the lever up swiveled down, but then you aren’t level and inline with the grip. So I installed the Woodcraft Zero degree clip-ons, it pushed the master position out about 1 1/2” (I can measure if you want to know exactly) and I can have the lever straight now, right where I want it. Pushing the clutch side out that distance, I had rerouted the cable so it didn’t seem stretched at all. I just routed in the the left side of the stay that the throttle cables go through. Throttle side was fine. I really like the feel, I am much happier with this setup, which really is all driven by my master change. Stock is fine, I only changed the master because I bent my oem brake lever.
I cut 1/2” off the Woodcraft bars.

He has Woodcraft clip-on bars on his R7. Clip-ons are hollow.
No one makes an adapter for the R7 yet. I found a machine shop willing to custom make it for fairly decent price but they have to design it to be compatible with stock bar ends and bars. I thought about a patent and then selling it. Its been about a year since the r7 released. and for stock bars its tough to get anything to work.

I had a selection of inserts to try on the new bars.
Throttle side got the ramped multi piece kind of insert that spreads apart when you tighten it. I wanted that side to not move so I went with that insert.
Clutch side got a different kind of basically, hammered or pressed in insert. Looks kind of like a star around a nut, you press it in as far as you want it, which really isn't too far. It was both hammered and pressed in to place. Hold the mirror well.
