I am considering clubmans...at $20 if I do not like them it is not a big loss. Close to $200 for the thar bars is a tough pill to swallow... i just got my bike, it has 30k on it, my main goal was for this to be a super cheap investment for fun. I just wish i could sample them...i was thinking of bending a coat hanger to the spec's of some of the bars listed...
Clubmans were developed for one reason: to put the controls where they need to be on a naked bike (all there was at the time) to put it on the track, where you are either laying on the tank or all over the front of the bike in corners. They may feel "racy" at first but after the first 100 miles or so of being folded up like a carpenter's rule just to reach the controls they really begin to wear on you. Trust me, I've seen it a hundred times. When I was working at a motorcycle shop that specialized in race and cafe racer modifications we would reluctantly install clubmans for a customer with the absolute certainty that they would be back in a week complaining of all sorts of ailments relating to poorly positioned bars. I'd bet we sold the same set of clubmans 6 or 7 times.
Renthal UL's are a good alternative as far as they go, and Suburban Machinery bars (Honda 919, Honda 599, Handlebars from Suburban-Machinery)
are another good choice, though they are pricey for fixed units. The Coerce Hyper Bars are 20mm lower than the Renthat UL's, and have a flat configuration (height and rise are the same), meaning they have to be rotated forward to clear the tank, which unfortunately gives them a positive rise instead of drop. Not long term comfortable.
Oh, here are CAD drafts of the Renthal street line. I was forced to make an assumption regarding the radius of the bends, but this will give you the idea. Notice they have the typical MX bar characteristic of rise (the ends of the bars are higher than the height of the second bend), common on dirt bars because they assume you are standing on the pegs much of the time and they are configured as such. Well, I don't stand on my pegs very often at any speed, and in order to get the drop where it needs to be for comfort on the street the bars have to be rotated back in the clamps, bringing them too close to the seat for my delicate sensibilities.
