    Just picked up a 90 VFR750F and while I love the bike I'd like to do something with the clip ons and foot pegs to make it a little more comfy for the long haul. The handle bars are angled a bit to much. I'd like them to be out more parallel with the ground and I'd like to get a better position for the foot pegs. Anyone have any suggestions on what works for them?

    You can remove the screws in the lower side of the clip-ons on some models, and it allows much greater flexibility in angling the clip-ons clockwise and CCW. Just don't change them so much that they bash the insides of the fairing at full lock.

    There are circlips on some models that limit how high on the fork tube the Clip-on can be clamped. If you remove the circlips you can raise the clip-ons about about 1/4" higher.

    "lowered" footpegs are commercially available, tho' not cheap.
