Well.. I am still with my stock handlebar as the mid-bend was outta stock... :boxing:

I was just wonder what the X guys are using?

1. Low bend? (lower than stock)
2. Mid bend? (stock height)
3. High bend? (higher than stock)

On top of that, do you feel any difference in handling?

thanks :thumbup:

When my girl got her's, she couldn't touch the ground so we had to lower it. So we bought the pro-taper universal mounts that mount on top of the original mounts to raise the bars about a 1/2 in. Then we put Tag Hi-bend (which I should mention are wider than the PT Evos hi-bend). Also, if you plan on getting the zeta handguards, they will not mount to the Tag Hi-bend. But they mount fine to the PT Evos. Acerbis HGs will mount fine to anything. :cheers:

Edit: Oh yeah, and the Tags are a little stiffer than the Evos too.

I actually threw on a set of Renthals with a Honda bend (this is what I was told anyway) that were given to me. Honestly they work pretty well, and are only about an 1/8" different on the ends of the bars. Eventually I'd like to try a Pro Taper similar to what is on my YZ250F.
