What is the benefit of a top clamp that moves the bars higher and further forward? Is it just comfort or does it give you more control?

I understand higher, so you can stand and still reach the bars. All these aftermarket clamps all seem to bring the bars forward vs stock. The factoy clamp puts the bars behind the tubes, but the aftermarket ones are either even with or out front.. How does that change the handling?

Does not affect the steering, only the cockpit area.

It adds comfort, which makes it better to handle and you can place your bars more foward if you desire..
