For the track riders that are looking for a handlebar setup that resembles a real sport bike and not a dirtbike/cruiser, I can safely recommend the Chimera UBomb clip on adaptor. After about 50 laps on the track last night, I am in love with these over the stock bars and the Protapers I had before. It is much easier to get my body position correct and more weight over the front end. They also got rid of the awkward wrist angles that occurred with the previous bars. The only negative that I have with them is that with the degree of the clip ons in the pics, they will hit the plastic at full lock. I am ok with it since its a track only bike. I could adjust the clip ons to not hit but they won't have the same angle as the big bikes. And this angle was comfortable to me.

Looks good. I think the Hurricane Forward Condor bars would have a similar effect. Lower but much more forward. I was thinking about those, but after getting used to my current Protaper minim bend, I decided to stick with it a while,.

Maybe a set of these steering stops from Webike Japan would keep the bars from hitting. Shipping is only about $6.

Those are some funky looking bars. :surprise:

I wonder how handling is effected with those bars being so far forward of the forks. I know my friend with a Z has these bars (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Handle-bars-Kawasaki-Z125-Pro-NEW-KSR110-CR-Racing-/253208312801?hash=item3af4643be1:g:Fg8AAOSwuq9ZaS1t&vxp=mtr) and when I took it for a couple of laps around the track, the bike seemed like it was even twitchier than the setup I have. I may have gotten used to them like I did my current ones, but I know I didn't enjoy his after the couple of laps.
