I know what some of you guys have done, files etc. and have scoped out this thread for a hot minute. Started opening the M/C side up with Sand paper doubled over a set of 7/8 bars to open it up a bit and now moved up to some 1" bars with paper around it to try and open them up a bit more. Any tips/pics of opening them up to accept the 1" bars?
it's starting to match the contour of the bar BUT it looks like its got A LOT to go before they touch eachother (the flats on the clamps). and this sand paper wrapped around the bar seems to be wallering out the clamp. (Not a perfect cirlcle)
Hopped around and saw a picture posted by LDNCLR and the gap is about like this with the controls on the bars now....
Is this alright/How some of you other guys ran yours or do the pretty much flush up?
Thanks in adavnce.
i used a 31/32" drill bit to do mine then i just had to work the areas where the flats touch
