Please read my review on Clipons for the Yamaha R3 here: What are the best clipons for the Yamaha R3?
Vortex Clip-Ons are an economical replacement handlebar with amazing strength. They are machined from solid billet with a removable handlebar. In the event of a crash, you simply replace the handlebar tube instead of the entire Clip-on. Kit includes both collars, 2 handlebar tubes with plastic ends and high tensile strength fasteners.
Note: Vortex Bar End BE118K will also work with Vortex Clip-on tubes.
Because these clipons must mount above the triple clamp to avoid interference, we recommend them for street riders because they offer a more aggressive riding position and clean up the look of your R3 at the same time.
The OEM left side grip is VERY difficult to remove without damaging it, and the OEM Throttle tube on the R3 has molded plastic fins on it to keep the grip from spinning. This makes it very labor intensive to file or dremel down these fins if you want to install aftermarket grips. Because of these 2 factors, I highly recommend purchasing a replacement left side grip with your clipons to make your installation easy. I also highly recommend replacing the R3 throttle tube with an R6 throttle tube at the same time you are changing the clipons, since you already have the handle bars taken apart. The R6 throttle tube has a larger cam diameter and will shorten the throw of the throttle on your R3 by 15-20%. This makes it much easier to reach full throttle without having to re-grip the throttle or twist your wrist uncomfortably far. This does not require any modification to your R3 other than loosening the throttle cable a little at the adjuster nut on the throttle housing.

This is the set of clipons that we recommend for track/race use for the Yamaha R3.
*NOTE* The standard 12″ bars are long enough to install Woodcraft or Vortex lever guards at the end with the bars in a comfortable position for most riders. You do not need to purchase the extra-long 13.5″ bars unless you like your bars particularly wide AND want to install lever guards.
Woodcraft 3-piece split clipons are specially designed to make installation and removal a snap. The 3-piece design is race proven and makes it easy to service your clipons below the triple clamp without having to disassemble the entire front end. Special attention has also been taken to save weight wherever possible.
This set has a 1.5″ rise over the standard no-rise set and works well for race use mounted below the triple clamp.
The clip-on mounts are all black, choose black or silver bars when ordering.
Clipon sets include (2) bars, you can add additional bars here for spares if you would like.
