A-B-A comfort comparison of SpeediMoto Triple

I wasn't sure how much the SpeediMoto triple clamp helps with the comfort level since it was installed over the winter months. I was dissapointed that it only raised the bars about 3/8" (10mm) on my bike, LESS than half of the advertised 3/4"!

Last week I switched back to the stock triple clamp. I found that riding in the twisties are easier and more natural with the stock triple. The "feel" is faster and racier too if you know what I mean. But the comfort is most definately less. My hands get numbed up in city riding within 10 minutes. Not only the wrists/hands but my neck gets store/stiff with the stocker after riding an hour.

Switched back to the speedymoto yesterday and WOW what a difference in comfort. I set the bars to sweep back about 75% of the adjustable range and think that has more to do with it than the increased height. No neck soreness, hands/wrists don't get numb nearly as fast either.

This isn't news to most who frequent this board but I had to see for myself. Now I just have to try Smeegle's upside-down clip-on mod.

The speedimoto triple has some adjustability while the stockers have zero.
