They are all showing different part numbers. However they all use the same internal weights, bar ends, and hardware.

What is different about them? Rise? Angle? Internal fork mounting diameter?

Are they interchangeable? between 93-99?

Yes, they all interchange. The 98-99 gave a bit more "less intense" angle on the wrists that the predecessors aka more comfy. That's about it. You might not even notice the difference.

When you say angle in which direction? Vertically or horizontally? Or both?

So when I read they made the riding position "10mm more upright" or whatever, can't remember exactly. Was it all in the clip ons and rear-sets? Or did they alter the positions where these items mounted to the frame?

Basically, can you get a 96-97 or 98-99 riding position on a 93-95 by swapping some parts? And vice versa? Or are there frame differences that make up the difference?

I noticed you mentioned the 98-99 was changed, but 96-97 is showing a different part number also?

Made some pictars to clarify my angle inquiry.

So I have some clean 98-99 SC33 clip ons on the way to me. From comparing online pictures it does look they come up higher than SC28 by a decent amount, will compare against my SC28 ones when I get them.

Come to think about it. My ´96 are different to next model in they are more massive in the inward ends. Making it possible to true them in a lathe and make 8mm threads for a lengthening long enough for the part of the brake/clutch leavers to be placed inward of the fork legs. My hands are a bit higher placed and there are more leveraged.
