Lots and lots.

I did a 954 swap, and these are slightly longer than your 1000 forks, so you might need more rise than I did.. I needed a 3.5" rise just to get the bars up close to the stock position. (this is because you will have to put your clipons below the top triple, and the VTR had them above the top triple)

You know lazn... Your thinking might be a bit flawed on that one...

It really doesn't matter what lenght the forks are... None of them are long enough for you to mount clipons above the triple... And since the triple is fixed in height vs the fairings... Well the rise on the clipons are the same regardless of forks... Aside from personal preference though...

Sorry... I couldn't help myself... I'm a meanie...

BTW I think mine are at around 3.3-3.4" as I'm using adjustable...

True if you are using the same upper triple. RC51 forks would either allow use of the clipons above with 929 triples, or less rise with the flat RC51 triple

It's been awhile, and I have RC51 forks, and I don't know if there are a fixed set of off the shelf bars that will work perfect for my combo. I tried a few awhile back and finally paid up for a pair of convertibars. Sure was a nice feeling to adjust them similar to stock, and go lock to lock and not touch anything or have to trim anything. They can also be found used for alot cheaper on ebay from time to time. I guess the other option is to make 'em yourself. Sorry I can't answer your question, but the adjustable bars may be something to consider.

Yes... Also true, but we where talking about 1000RR and 954 forks... They only work in combination with the gull wing upper... Otherwise the geometry goes overboard... But yeah, combinations of RC51 parts adds complexity... But unless you are trying to confuse smokinjoe73 you'd have say what parts you where refering too then...

LoL. well I was wrong in the first post.. both 929/954 and 1000 swaps need about 3.5" of rise.

SlowHAWK is an unknown quantity at this point
I tried a bunch of different bars... Ducati 900ss Heli-Bars are the best I found... put the bars in a slightly higher than stock location and a bit wider (width due to the fork setup being wider). This setup is very close to a VFR bar on stock front end setup.

With these bars, I have them mounted about 13mm lower than the RC51 Upper triple I'm using... which basically means they'd be in the same spot with a 929/954 gullwing upper as well.

Whenever anyone asks this question I feel obligated to show how I solved my problem. I made spacers out of aluminum and then installed TAG risers and used a superbike bar cut to just about the same width as the stock clipons. After further study, I believe this could be done without having to make the spacers. There is barely enough room to mount the risers directly to the flat part of the 954 triple.
The bars are slightly higher and closer to the seat than the stockers.
