        Just find any clip on from a bike with a 41mm fork tube. CBR600 F2 are probably the most common, with very litte rise, the older VFR will be somewhere in between these and stock. You may need to remove little locating 'pins' in order to use them above the Hawk triple. Nothing a few minutes with a hacksaw/angle grinder and some sandpaper can't fix.

                I've got RGV ones on mine. nice and low, almost flat. Like Eric said, just take a look for oe 41mm jobbies, there's plenty around in a variety of heights. The most you'll have to do is drill new holes for the switch locator pegs. I think mine cost a tenner.

                  How much we talking?

                  Rise is how high they come up. The wordcrafts and those vortex have 0 rise where as the Hawks are like 6 and the F2's are about 4.

                      Vortex bars have a downangle that many people,myself included, find quite uncomfortable.It's not just height,it's the angle your wrist must assume.

                      I can deal with fairly extreme seat/bar/footrest geometry but when you use lower bars that put more weight on your wrists,you really want your wrists at a flatter angle to better support yourself.It's somewhat counter intuitive but you have to look at ergonomic changes as parts of a whole: changing the bars changes more than just how far forward you lean on hold your arms,it affects where you sit and how your hips rotate as well.

                            +1 on what Joel said, in every respect.

                            You will very likely find that with a lower hand position, you will also want to move your footpegs back, to get your feet back under you and to keep your knees out of the way of your chest.

                            The downward angle thing is down to personal preference, but as he says, the lower your hands go, the less angle you want. If you can save up, some aftermarket bars are adjustable in this regard. Try to sit on some other Hawks and see what feels most natural to you. Otherwise, it's a bit of a suck it and see affair.

                              well i still have my stock seat which is higher than my corbin so im gonna put that back on until i buy my monster seat and rig that together.

                              as for the pegs it doesnt matter much where they are for me its pretty comfortable. adjustables are good idea i was looking at em before and probably will end up with them.
