I haven't exchanged my handles yet, but when I do, I will probably go with Renthals. Pro Taper seems to be a good product too. I'll let you know when I get more info!

I just got my new Renthals 7/8 bars from Motosport for $64 Raptor bend and I love them. Some one once told me that you want your hands to be about 2" below your elbows, some thing to thing about when you are picking out a bend. However i think any after market bar is going to be better then the orginal bars.

So what bend do most people go for? Im leaning towards High because i like how Bush_Pilot's look. they look like theyd be comfortable.

i did some searches on handle bars but i havent found enough info. any one care to help out?the above pro taper bars look very nice, but what are the trade offs when buying low-med-or high bend bars? i know riding a 01 660 sucks due to the high toppleing feel of the bars and feels less stable. what are some direct fit bars that utilize the stock hardware/wires /etc? what is the stock thickness or bar to buy?my stock bars had a ok hieght width curve feel to them,but is any one more prefeered than another. i know it is MOSTLY personnel preference on styles,but i wanted some insight from you guys. thanks.

Ok does anybody know if the Raptor handlebar bend is the same on all the raptor's?? Cause i have found alot of bars but they say Raptor bend insted of say a 350,660 or 700.. So I assume there all the same bend but we all know what happens when we assume :lol:

Thanks

Raptor bend refers to the 660/700 not the 350, the 350 is referred to as the 350 raptor. Trailtech X bars are cool looking and great fitting :)

Raptor Bend is extremely high, I have mid bend Trailtechs with the dashboard, but the dashboard acts like a spacer. :)

It doesnt really matter what you get, but I hear mids hit on tank, but I have the Trailtech Dashboard for my vapor, not the pastic thing. Why not call them and find out?
