this is probably about the third bike now I've tried drag bars on and they are too narrow to mount the brake m/c, the m/c always hits the bend in the bars. Even the dirt track bars I have on now I had to machine a couple slugs to put in the end of the bars to widen them. Is there such a thing as a m/c that has a narrower mount?? The controls I am using were designed to double as a switch housing and I am guessing there has to be ones that arent. Any help, ideas, etc...???

Maybe another approach?
I've seen several dimesions of different drag bars, you may just need to find the right one.
Also, i seen post here (i think it was here) about relocating the master cylinder to a hidden location to clean things up. Try the search function.

There are a few company's that make controls without the switch plates. I have a PM m/c and it has no switch face. Just a contored bracket thats almost flush with the handle bars

searched around in some catalogs and seems like the only m/c without the switch plated are expensive ones like PM or Ness (=very expensive) guess maybe I'll just have to widen the bars...dont think I care for the remote m/c, seems like any additional linkage, etc. would just be an extra hassle
