A some of you will be aware, I recently had to buy some new handle bars to replace the ape hangers that I had been using. Th only problem I had was how the the clutch lever clamps to the handle bars. Unlike the front brake which is in affect is two hallfs that bolt together to form a clamp the Clutch is not & is a complete circle that just clamps up slightly to hold it in place.
However due to the new bars I am fitting & the fact that they are powder coated, which in turn due to the coating actually increases the circumfrence of the 1' bars by a fraction, the clutch had to be separated into to half's & have a second hole drilled & threaded to take another bolt to assist in the two half's clamping together.
I could have possibly got the clutch lever clamp in to its normal position but this would have meant, either reducing the powder coating thickness & would not have been a good way of solving the issue.

I owe a debt of gratitude to Doc Cox & Glen at Rolling Art Motorcycles for helping me out with this annoying issue & solving it for me. Clutch, Handle bar Clamp 3498837457

Nice job that Dave Clutch, Handle bar Clamp 2170595768  It'll make for easier handle bar removal, as you won't have to slide the clutch lever down the bar, which means removing the grip too.

Nice one done, good to see how you can get around stuff. Bit strange how that one is done differently to the other side even from new but there you go. Nice to see that there is more than one way to skin a cat, good job done Clutch, Handle bar Clamp 184121345
