I like the stock clip-ons. I think they are great. To each his own.

Basically, almost any 41mm clip on should work.

I just searched on ebay UK and plenty of American vendors are selling vortex sets with shipping to the Uk.

Here's an excellent article written by one of our vendors, who has installed quite a few different sets on his race bike. He might even be able to ship you a set if you get in contact with him. Shipping across the pond won't be cheap, but you'll know for certain what you are buying will fit well.

I do not believe so, but don't quote me on that.

Ive ordered a few parts from china/taiwan for bikes and have never had to pay anything other than the international postage.

Isn't Lighttech a UK ODM? I think they have clip-ons. I know they have rear sets. Dimotv is a fantastic part company (Designed in Germany and made in Taiwan). Their parts are super high quality and really nice looking but their clip-ons are pricey. Vortex are nice but I am not sure if they're available in UK.

Here is Dimotiv's site: http://www.dmv.com.tw/html/front/bin/home.phtml

Jesse @jbluetooth ) is a vendor and Vortex reseller here on the R3 forums. You can go to his store and blog site and contact him via the site or through forum PM's. He might be able to ship overseas for you. He usually has Vortex clip-ons in stock and can probably ship as fast as you can click. Give him a try, he's really a great and helpful guy even though he has funny colored hair. ;-)

You can PM Jesse using his screen name: @jbluetooth

Here is a link to his site. You might try ordering on his site and see if there is overseas shipping available on the site-I'm not sure.
