Trying out Icon bars on my FTP.
Can't torque the bottom clamp w/o taking the head off the bike.
Very reluctant to do this and wondered how others deal with this 'challenge'?

Do you have a ham fisted brother?
My brother does.
I have done what you say Max - nothing stripped this time.
What happened is I fitted Icon bars (new clamps etc) and at the same time heavy bar-end weights. The vibration seemed much worse over our bumpy roads.
So I checked and tightened all the nuts as necessary. Couldn't torque the top clamps either as my wrench starts at 40nm!
Need to go for another test ride now.

what's the required torque for the bar clamps? Can't be much more than 30-40 Nm

But they are rubber mounted, all you're doing is clamping the steel sleeve that's inside the rubber bushing...
