I have been looking for answers on all of these questions but haven't been able to find definite answers.

I am looking at Flexx bars and was wondering what bend would fit my riding style. I am 6 foot tall and like to ride standing up a good amount of the time but would like to be comfortable when sitting down too.

I am looking at getting ASV levers at the same time.

With that setup can I use Rox 2 inch spacers and have all the cables reach?
I also have seen people mention you have to relocate the reverse knob onto the bars and move the key. What is the reasoning behind this?

How would this setup be compared to stock height?

Sorry for the book, but would like to get everything straight before I lay down the cash.

Thanks
Ray

Also as a foot note how big of a spacer can I use with stock cables? And where can I buy extended cables?

well some ppl say they have those and run stock cables. my throttle cable is very tight as it is, but i have a lonestar steering stem that the first owner put on. idk if it is the +2 or not, but i am thinking no. www.tqsatv.com is the only place i have seen that has longer cables, but i'm sure you can get them somewhere else. i have heard if you call him and say you saw he was a sponsor on a forum, they'll cut you a deal. if you don't know what bend you would like, go to a shop and hold some bars and pretend your riding. i know you'll look like a retard, but its better than having horrible blisters or being uncomfortable when you ride. try and remember what bend it was, look up the specs and match them to the flexx.

motion pro sells +2 cables, which i run with a 3 inch risers and raptor bend bars, it's a little tight but works fine. im 6'3 and I hate to have to bend down and reach the bars. not sure what the max is with stock cables but the problem is with the brake line not the cables.

I know you can do +2" without cables. You could get +18" cables, a 10" ROX Pivot Riser and a 10" ROX Riser Block for Pivot Risers. I saw a 8" Block riser on a sled the other day, it looked pretty retarded, but it was really nice when standing.

Thanks for the help to those who posted.

Does anyone know the difference in height between a set of quad hi or quad low flexx bars?

My current plan is to run a Rox 3.5 riser with the flexx 14* bars but not sure on the hi or low yet. Which should equate to 1.5 inches taller than stock correct?
(with flexx bars being 2 inches shorter than stock bars)

The 14* quad low has been reccomended to me but is there a reason? (Not challenging someones knowledge just curious why)

By the looks of flexx's site the difference between the hi and low is the hi is 24 mm higher at grip location.

Any one out there have the hi bars and an extended stem that could comment on it?
