I guess all the aftermarket clip-on manufacturers assume everyone knows how to improvise because I've never seen any instruction and/or parts to mount the fluid resevoir.

This pic is off of my GSXR600 street bike. Pretty simple, as you can see.


This is off my GSXR750 race bike. A little more involved and ugly but effective. It calls for drilling through the tube itself and using a separate bolt and nut (you can see the black bolt towards on the tube). As you can see, this bike has been upside down at least once (clip-on tube damage)

You mean you smell hundreds. Afterall, how many riders actually have aftermarket clip-ons anyways besides dedicated track bikes and those veteran canyon carvers. Hell, even those $30,000 stretched bikes with all the chrome, paint, and stretch still have factory brakelines and stock clip-ons.

I had Woodcraft clip-ons on my K1 1000 and they actually made a piece to mount it but I couldn't get it to work anywhere so I did the zip tie thing. Look on the Woodcraft website and see, then try and make something similar. Good luck and post some pics when your done!!
