Flexx bars are awesome. I havent tried any other bars though. Lots of different brands, ProTaper, Renthal, and a ton others...

I've got Pro Taper Contour bars - ATV mid bend with a two inch riser and ODI grips. No alterations to make as everything ends up about the same as OEM bars except they look better and don't rust.

If you buy fast flexx bars you can get a trail tech bar clamp that will hold your key barrel.
You don't have to change your steering stem either.

On mine, I have thye Flexx Bars, ROX Riser for 1-1/8" bars, and a ROX dash, that holds the key, an is awesome! You could get a Dr D. Reverse Locator, and then move the key to the hole in the front fenders.

Thanks. I have my Flexx bars already, and asked this same question over a week ago. I was thinking Trail Tech was the only clamp that included an ignition hole. Good to know ROX does as well. I had my steering stem inspected, and it is solid. No bends and perfectly straight. I was planning to get a Houser stem, but Trail Tech clamps only work with factory steering stems. Without a Riser, I was thinking ( factory stem + Fasst Flexx bars/15 degree quad bend + Trail Tech clamp) = Shorter bar height than factory.

Do the Rox riser clamps work with factory stems?

With the two inch riser, did you have to install or modify longer cables?

The kill switch/lights/starter button cluster is pretty tight, not too bad, I have a 1.5" riser, and the 2" ROX, which was cut down to 3/4". Throttle cable is good, and it has +2" brake lines also. I want to get a +1 or +2 stem, and get rid of the 1.5" riser...
