Question quick Handle bar question-renthals closer to stock

Ive got what appear to be RUL on the bike from when I bought it but, they may be renthal street fighters. I need somthing closer to stock made by renthal. I'd like to get some advice on what bar to get. I'm 5 10 and have a 32" sleeve.
I cant tell which would be best for the length.

I couldnt seem to find anything with the right pull back to stock. Not sure what I should shoot for here

--------------------Width mm--------Rise mm-----Pullback mm

Stock 919-----------------------660--------102------190
Coerce---------------------------690-------- 30------100
Renthal Ultra lows----------725--------75--------95
Renthal Streetfighter------755------100--------80
Renthal Low------------------730------105--------125
Renthal Medium-------------725------115--------105
Renthal High-------------------710------120--------105
AFAM superbike-------------730--------80--------80
LSL Sport Tourer------------680--------45------110
LSL superbike lows--------740--------50------140
LSL superbike----------------760--------70------150
Suburban Machienry------685--------50------120
Rizoma Conical or Std.---720------- 75------105

I have the stock bars (somewhere) that you can have. If you want them just cover the shipping.

Thatd be cool. It would definitely make it easier to sit in the seat instead of pulled so close to the tank. PM or email you?

I will look for them, and get you a shipping quote.

What color are the Rentals you currently have? I might be interested in them.

Silver. I think they are the street fighters which are close to the RUL.

FYI- I may not be selling them right away since I'm in the test stage of fine tuning my ride set up and I may put them back on. Depends on the ride change. I might be better off just getting some renthal mediums if you were looking for a trade.

I just went down to look for those bars and I believe I may have tossed them? I'll look in my garage attic later when the car and other crap isn't in there. If I find them I'm sure that shipping wouldn't be anymore than 10 bucks.

I can't find mine... never thought I'd pitch them, but I went through a major cleaning phase a few months ago and may have put them in with some of the other stuff. Sorry!

I'm sure that someone else will step up and help you out. Like Rickard919!

I'd be interested in your old bars if you are willing to sell them.

Might shoot for a local sale first to save shipping.

Everyone says the Renthal Mediums are almost identical to stock.... but they have 85mm or 3.3in less sweep (pull-back)?

Is there a typo in the stock measurements or what? I'd expect people to mention the sweep difference more as that seems to be what causes a lot of problems on the stock bars.

That sounds like just about exactly what I'm wanting. I like the height of the stock bars, but the "pull-back" drives me nuts and makes my wrists hurt on longer ride.

Does anyone know of a site that has this information for Pro-Taper bars? I can't find anyone local that carries Renthal and if at all possible, I'd like to be able to buy them in person.

I just bought a set of Pro Taper CR Mid for my 919.
I'll be putting them on in the next day or so.
I bought them off the shelf at a local dealer.
They were much cheaper than Renthals.

I just put on my new handlebars. They are Pro Taper SE series CR Mid MX bars.
Pricing was $ 72 Canadian. Renthals were $ 139 Can.
I cut 1 inch off each end and removed the crossbar. Also drilled holes where the nub things go.
I bought lead anchors meant to anchor into concrete at Home Depot of the appropriate size to fit into the end of the new handlebar. This let me use the stock handlebar ends/weights.
It was kind of late when I finished ( and I had some beers ) so I will try it out tomorrow and report back.

One other thing;
Because of the different bend in the bar, the clutch lever didn't line up with the L side grip when pulled in. I removed the lever and bent it downward. I did this by putting the perch end on a 2x4 and hitting it with a hammer untill it had a slight bend.

Here are the stock bar ends/weights reinstalled.
I used a 5/16 anchor inside the bar.
I need to get new mirrors now. The stock ones look even worse now.
