Wondering if the stock top clamp and bar mounts can be converted to rubber mount. Was thinking of longer bolts and milling the mount holes of the top clamp; either conical or flat with high durometer rubber bushings.

yes im sure they could be converted, if you like to tinker with that sort, but im gonna go out on a limb here and say some pillow tops are a easier fix , maybe fast flexx bars if you want to spend a lil to fit the problem with out any milling.

How did you do it and which protaper clamps did you use? Did it make a difference?

I bought the pro taper mounts for a Honda and drilled out the holes. Then tapered the top of the holes to seat the rubber mounts

If I remember right the oem yamaha mounts were like 160 for a pair. The pro taper mounts were 40. For some reason no aftermarket mounts were made for a 07. Not that I could find or my dealer anyway.
