I have been looking around for handle bars and wanted to ask you guys that have them,

Where does the key go after handlebar is installed?

Also do I need to get new grips with it or will the stockers do alright... ?

the plastic piece that holds the key still stays in place with aftermarket, at least with the ones i have, pro tapers SE atv HI bend. they have a cross bar, they do rub a little on full lock.
stock grips won't be re-useable, new grips are like 10bucks, get some nice gels' or something, use grip glue, will work great

I have the Pro Taper Se Black bars in Raptor bend. I really love them bars look alot better. The plastic where the key is just clips back into place. And get some nice grips and your good to go :thumbsup:

unless you plan on buying a new stem or riser, I would go with the protaper se raptor bend. It bolts right on so you don't have to move the key, buy new mounts, and does not rub on the tank. I have not heard of the bars in your last post, but bars for $20???? I wouldn't get your hopes up.

if it's under 100$ you want,then pro taper SE raptor bend / black with black spider grips, i wouldn't get 20$ bars,just for the fact that if the quality is bad,well you don't want to have some kinda problem while steering, that could cost you your life!

and don't forget the grip glue! and make sure to get alot at the ends of the bars, mine came kinda loose and now i'm thinking of putting on new grips, i used the saftey wire at the front and end but still came kinda loose, i shoulda used more glue

ok I like those handle bars, now.... If I get the Dr. Reverse and remove the white piece that holds the key completely, will i need to get a bracket to hold the handlebar to make it look nicer than the crappy little clamps that come stock?

You dont have to but yes they do sell nicer clamp kits. 7/8 is the bar size I believe.
