got new bars on

put on the pro taper evo's charmichael bend and love em!!! i feel more like a badass than i did with the stock, lol (felt like my hands were in my lap).

one of the best things about the new bars is the ability to turn sharper and faster as i seem to have much more control (i kind of have long arms, and am 6'4").

anybody looking for an alternative to renthals i highly recommend the pro tapers!

I think that's the bend on my YZ250 Pro Taper bars.

Sokali did you ever try the Ultra lows at original length? If so how do they compare after trimming them down? I didn't trim my ultra lows and like them, but have considered trimming for a little less wide stance. Especially since I have bar ends on both sides and it makes the bike feel really wide.

The cardboard is a nice touch over just tapping up your speedometer.

Nope; I cut it before installing it. I do a lot of lane splitting on the freeways.

That is masking tape on the speedometer; I just wrote the reminder on it.

i will get picks up, as for clearance the throttle side was fine, as for the clutch side i had to slide it down about an inch away from the grip (go figure as i had planned on cutting off an inch anyway!).

another thing, i use a barend mirror, i had to trim down inside the bar and the bar end it self to fit into the opening, just an fyi if you use these mirrors.
