Sounds a bit strange to me, the clocks are surely simple attached to the bar by either clamping on, dimple or hole attach which would be very easy to get around.
Hopefully one of the guys with different bars will chip in but I know for a fact it has been done many times

I agree Dave thought much the same but the cruiser shop in southport told me he has customized a M800 and said he had to keep the original bars because the bars had a complicated clock bracket that he couldn't copy!!!!,,,i expect the clocks just have a clamp of sorts that i can just remove and clamp to my new bars,,,at least I'm hoping Thinking of changing my bars on Suzuki M800 938687981 .

Time to get the Allen key out and take a little peek I reckon, 5 minutes and you would have your answer.

If we trusted so called shop mechanics we would never get anything done, so many of them can do no more than follow instructions or unbolt one simple thing to add another simple thing. I would dare to say that 99% of all modifications would have at least originated in one way or another from a guy trying something out in his garage just to see if it would work or not!

I've seen a fair few M800's with drag bars on the net, as Mr I says take a little peek and at least you will have an idea of what your up against

I took the bar clamps off today and had a look, it looks like they should come off,i think if i take the levers an grips off i should be able to slide the clocks off (or the bars out of the clocks), after loosening there clamps that is,The clock cables are very tight thr is not a lot of play ,,,I don't have the new bars yet so don't want to take to much off as i want to be able to ride it if the sun comes out (not much chance i know).but would feel more confident if someone has removed them,an may have a few tips Thinking of changing my bars on Suzuki M800 184121345

On my M800 (2005... so don't know if it's different!) I changed the bars no probs .. the speedo attaches to the bars between the clamps.... you can't change the risers though , because if I remember right the speedo head also mounts to moulded brackets on the riser itself !!
