Posted this up for those wondering what the install looks like. Let me know if you have any questions!
Additional info below:
-Woodcraft clip-ons 1.5" risers (down position install)
-I used oem clutch, throttle, brake lines (I just had to reroute them a bit)
-Does not hit the tank, but may be different on an fz09 since the tank is different.

      i like your video a lot, i just got my xsr900 a couple weeks ago and i want to drop these handlebars but i wanted to ask what made you choose 1.5? do you know if thiers any problems with getting ones that are lower like the 2''

      Yeap, no spacers needed using the 1.5 downward. Just install and go. The 2" will most likely require the spacer, and maybe new cables too, not 100% sure though. If you really wanted to go lower, you can get clip-ons too, but will require a bit more work.

      i was hunting around the forums and I just found your posts, I see that you didn't have to use the 10mm spacers but ill have to use them for the 2'' most likely. my last question if i may ask do you think i can possibly get away with using the 2'' without having to replace things like the cables or were your 1.5 already cutting it too close?

      thanks a lot, I had emailed woodcraft because it says to use the 2 inch only in the up position and like you probably figured out it starts to run into the gas tank too much requiring more spacers than the 1.5, one more thing did you have to use the 10mm spacers to make the bar ended stick more forward so it wouldn't run into the tank that woodcraft offers? or were you just able to install them in the down position without any issues with the gas tank?

      You have 2 options when you get each clip on (no matter if you get 1.5, 2, etc). You can either install it in the up position, or in the down position (which is what i used). I believe for the xsr, the 1.5 in the down position is the lowest you can go without doing any custom cables, install, etc. And thats why i went with the 1,5.. I wanted to go as low as I can without any issues with the install or getting extensions. By the way, while the position is much lower than stock, it still wasn't as low as my previous 2014 cbr1000rr (which i had at the time)

      What size drill bits were used

      I ended up just doing notches on the bars. Drilling was a pain in the butt.

      What is your height and weight?
      Looking at the 1" risers but would prefer the 1.5"... if our size is similar that would be great to know.
      Thanks and awesome tutorial!

      How long are the handlebars compared to the stock ones? I do a lot of lanesplitting (california) and right now I got the official Yamaha clubman bars. I want to take into consideration the length of the handlebars so I can fit into places more easily. And I'm about to take a job that does delivery so what size should I get for comfortability?

      I would have liked to see a shot of you sitting on the bike holding the bars. I have no idea to what extent the riding position has been changed. How much more are you tilting forward?

      Very well-explained. Woodcraft bars are clearly a polished product.

      halo halos Thank you for the info. How much lower do they sit compared to OEM with the 1.5" in the UP position? My biggest dilemma would be which riser size to choose.

      bocajuniors55 this is definitely lower than the stock xsr, but still higher than ur typical sportbike. The 1.5 is perfect for me, gone through 1 hour of riding comfortably. In my fireblade my back n shoulders would b hurting past 1 hour lol. This is in the 1.5 down by the way.

      I am coming from a CBR954rr. Do you recommend the 1.5" in DOWN position for sportbike riders like us? I want something aggressive but more comfortable than my old sportbikes. I am 5'10" and normal reach for my height.

      Before this bike I had a 2014 cbr1000rr. I would say between that and the stock xsr, this new woodcraft setup sits right in the middle. You're right, it would've been better if I showed the position before and after. I do have another clip where you could see it from a far (I was tracking myself with a drone). I'll try to do a closer shot in the future!

      Can I ask what bar end did you use to mount that mirror?

      I went through a lot of mirrors, but all of them can be found on ebay. Just search bar end mirrors. Good luck!

      I think you might have been able to leave your clutch cable on.

      how much clearance do you have when the fork is completely turned? Does your hand get pinched at all? trying to choose a riser size and up/down position for myself. 1 month later, any other thoughts you would like to add?

      I have about a lil under an inch clearance with the tank (measured from the control switches). Never had any issues with finger getting pinched. If you wanted extra room, you can also get the extenders they sell that move the bar a lil more fwd. Nothing new to add, wish Yamaha came with this handlebar instead!

      Send me your email I can send some pics to you. I like it now, it was way too upright for me previously.. But that's because prior to this I rode sportbikes.. So it's still not as low as my old cbr. It's sporty but not too sporty where it hurts my back. On my CBR, riding for about an hour starts making my shoulders n back ache. lol
