Honda Rebel 300 Clip Ons

I just got done installing a few items on a Honda Rebel 300. Main swap was the handlebars for Joker Machine Clips Ons with new grips and bar end mirrors. The ride is surprisingly comfortable. I need to figure out a new mount for the speedometer, any suggestions? I cut a short piece of pipe and reinstalled at the factory height with the original riser. Seat was changed and is way more comfortable. Next is the exhaust.

Welcome! I like the look. Wonder what your options are for moving / replacing that speedo.

I am most likely going to design and cut a bracket that I can mount flush to the triple clamp that would place the speedometer in the small space between the triple clamp and headlight. Most likely a project that might happen this weekend. I like the speedometer, I am unsure if I would replace it entirely.

You can get a relocation kit off webike japan. Looks real clean I’ve been eyeballing it whether or not I end up going with low bars.

Thanks for sharing that, looks like that might be the ticket to relocate the speedometer for sure, I kind of like that look as well with it off to the side. I'll update the thread with photos this weekend on what I decide or if I end up ordering the kit.

I’d be careful of that brake line though. Seeing the picture again, that brake line has a real hard kink. You might be better off rotating the line around so it curves in from the top.

That's quite an interesting handlebar, for sure!
What height are you? Doesn't it put a lot of strain on your back?

I checked it out and straightened it, it wasn’t kinked but did have a good U shape in it, much better now. Thanks for taking notice. I ordered the relocation speedometer kit too, should have it in a week or so. Thanks again for sending that link!
