The further back you move the clipons the less clearance you have for lock to lock steering which can reduce low speed maneuverability as your hands or the controls themselves may hit the tank.

If you still have clearance from the tank lock to lock then you should be fine. Handle bar postion will not directly affect suspension geometry...only your ability to steer.

Having said all that, have you looked in riser clipons?

I swept back the bars on my 848evo with speedymoto clipons and omni bars.
I had to reduce the lock a little by adjusting the stops.
Leave yourself a bit of clearance, if it falls the bars will flex a bit and hit the tank.
