SP, you need to reduce the tension on the front wheel to easily remove and replace the triple clamp. I used a scissor jack under the bile to lift the bike slightly.
I understand in 2017 BMW changed the configuration of the clutch cable and master cylinder and you shouldn't have any issues there. I used the ABM detailed step by step instruction set for their clip-ons that does a great job of guiding you through the removal of the clamp and has most of the torque specs.
The results will be amazing, both in appearance and riding comfort. I found the bars to be too high and too wide.
One point, before you lock everything down, make sure you have the bars pulled out wide enough so you can turn lock to lock without hitting the tank. I had to adjust mine a bit to keep the switch gear from hitting the tank emblems.
Best of luck, post pictures!
