I need to get new handlebars after a minor low side crash. I think I remember the stock bars being 7/8ths and not dimpled? I'm not going with stock bars again and just want to be sure I order the right size,etc.
Cool,thanks for the chart. I've been eyeing the CR highbend and a Kawasaki highbend,though I really liked the stock bars on my old 500exc. I'll probably hit my local shops just to see what they have in stock and see if I like any of the bends before ordering online.
Nice! After checking out at all the bars at my local shops and looking at multiple charts online I ordered a Renthal RC High. I noticed the stock bars have 2 holes on the right side and 1 on the left. Did you have to drill holes in your new bars???
I drilled my bars. I don't think you have to, but it's not as hard of a job as it sounds. Under the switches for the lights on the left and the starter on the right there's a little plastic peg. They sit in the hole in the bar so that they don't slide around. Some bikes use this as a ground, but not ours, it's just plastic so I suppose you could file it off. Once I got my new bar mounted I put every thing back on without tightening the switches then stuck a little screw driver under the peg to scratch a mark where i wanted to drill. Just used a regular cordless drill, started slow and then add some pressure. Easy peasy.
