    Hi I have a 2016 V7 II Stone. I just bought a solo seat from a V7 Racer and was looking to get some sportier handlebars. I've looked at the Agostini Sport Drop bars and I think they are a little too aggresive since I also ride 2 up sometimes. What do you guys think of the LSL Superbike bars? I can't figure out how much of a difference from the stock handelbars there is. Thank you.

    I moved up to risers and flat 'drag bars' on my Racer because the clip ons were too much on my wrists. I am really happy with the compromise. Still forward and sporty but much more comfortable. Todd sells a pair on the site that would be a straight forward swap for the Stone.

    I'm running V7 racer clip on's on my stone plus rear sets and for me it's good no back or wrist problems.

    When I go riding I will make it normally around a 2 hour ride no worries at all I'm not even thinking about stopping I just keep riding
    Living the dream;)
    Everyone is different but for me it's great I think if I was sitting more upright my backside would suffer.

    A bit off topic, but if you do switch bars and are looking to get rid of your oem black bars let me know! My special has chrome bars and would rather have black ones. Im in SD also ;)

    Very cool. I'll let you know, I generally like keeping all stock parts but I will definitely think about it. You should come out when torque moto café does a bike night next time.

    I pm'd you.

    Also has anybody tried the superbike low bars? I am still trying to make it comfortable for two-up riding.

    I'd love to hear (and see) what you ultimately decide on. I'm in the same boat, I would prefer a slightly more aggressive position, but we bought the bike for two-up riding, so that is definitely a consideration.

    I have the LSL Superbike bars, but I can't recall if they are low or standard. I'll sell them if you want to try them. They are drilled for 2014 V7 Stone controls.

    I bought them because they wider, with the hopes I could see behind me using LSL Clubman mirrors, but it didn't help. So I put the stock bars back on and went with bar-end mirrors. With the wider LSL bars I felt there was more buzz causing my hands to go numb.

    That sounds like it would be a good idea.

    Anyone running "M" bars? I too have been thinking about something a little more aggressive but not as low as clubman. Have seen them on a few triumphs over the years and know of a few sources.
