Anyone know if these are 7/8" or 1"?  Also, looking for clip ons ....trying to lower just an inch or 2 so any advice is appreciated...not looking to mount under the fork tree.

You can loosen both shocks and get them higher in the fork-Ts by an inch.....that will lower the front end and handles by an inch......seems to work well if you need a bit more "crouch".

There were rumors when I first joined about flipping the existing handlebar mounts would lower the bars about half to an inch.  Thought about doing it, but haven't had an opertunity.....
