You basically can do that, but to clamp them savely you need to lower the front according the height of the clamps at least 35 mm or even more...As I am lowering my forks this weekend along with the rear, I was wondering if anyone ever mounted the '06 Sc handlebars on top of the triple clamp?
If you had enough meat sticking out of the top can this be done to raise them up a bit?
Yes, I was thinking the safety thing as they could conceivably "slip off of the top".. QUOTE]
It's exceedingly unlikely. All the pressure against the bars is forward and down. It would rotate around the fork leg long before you'd have to worry about it popping off the top.
