You must choose what feels good for you. I tried the CR high and liked were the put my hands. It might actualy be a little high, but everything felt nice.

Stock.
Never bought a pair of handlebars.
Never had need to. Grips & levers, but not bars.
Guess i'm not that picky.

Although my son's RM60 has a pretty kewl set of Renthals that i might swipe for the BRP.
Why anyone would put a set of full size renthals on a rm60 though........ :eek: :laugh:

Stock bars had me hunched over when I stood up, so after I bent them I bought protaper AC1s CR-High bends. The bend was very comfortable so after I bent those. I went with the protaper AC3s they are 1mm thicker but I stuck with the CR-high bend cause it's comfortable. Just put them on last week so if I bend these I'll have to rethink it.

Pro tapers, CR high bend, the most comfortable bend out there, their new slogan should be......"CR High Bend Pro Tapers, it's not just for tall people anymore" because so many people have the misconception that CR hi's are for tall people, I'm 5'9" and love em.

I like the gin mill down on the corner not too crowded and the prices are fair ;)

Tag T-2 oversize in gleaming RED to fit the CR. Azonic Doublewall oversize for the 490 Maico, both in High CR bend. Personally I don't understand why everybody doesn't switch to oversize bars instead of those wimpy 7/8" things.

Moose Bars

So what are your thoughts on Moose Bars? They are a good price, quality would obviously suffer somewhat. Does anyone use them?

SO I know I am going with the CR hi Bend I check them out on a 450f and they felt right, I am just torn between brands, I am not going to go to oversized the 7/8 will do just fine, I am leaning toward the Moose Bars right now, allot of guys around here use them and they are a good price, but we will have to see what my local dealer can wisper in my ear as far as pricing goes.
