Hi

just looking around too see what replacement bars folk have used on mark IV and V Lemans bikes.  the height is ok, i think i would like flatter bars though. 
Gutsibits has some are there others about?

Cheers

Are you keeping the standard fairing? If so, which is it, the yolk-mounted (LMIV) one or the frame-mounted (LMV)? And if the frame-mounted one are the clocks on the yolk or in the fairing dash (last LMV series - and the neatest set-up IMHO)?
 
I have seen a pair of trail-type Renthal bars fitted to the last series LMV with no issues. They were quite pulled back so not really flat.
 
I experimented with raising the clip-ons of my LMV to above the yolk (my stanchions stick through - I think that is common) but ended up with controls hitting the fairing ears (either side of the screen) and had terrible steering lock and cable routing issues.
 
A possible better route is the V7 Sport style clip-ons which give a range of angles and heights so you can achieve a good compromise between mounting and comfort. They are available to fit the LMIV/V fork stanchions from somewhere in Germany.

the bike is an LMIV - fork mounted fairing.

i want to keep it as stock as possible - i reckon the V7 style you speak of might be the go, the Tarozzi clipons look like they might do the job too.

Yeah, you should be fine then. You will have to check the clutch cable length and possibly some other cables, though I am sure you know this.

I've got Tarozzi clip ons on The Thing and they work superbly.
