Handlebars for WR450-Tapered or straight?

Any suggestions on height/brand of bars and mounts would be appreciated!

I didn't go to an aftermarket top clamp though, just bought the 7/8 to 1-1/8 adapters (Tusk $35) which added another 3/4" of rise to the already taller bars. I wouldn't mind if they were farther forward though, but this was still about 300% better than stock! If I had another 3 bills to throw around, I might look at a fancy triple clamp that was adjustable fore and aft, but I can think of better places to spend that money (damper!).
Happy hunting! You will be happier with a taller bend that has less sweep, and the PT's are pretty much bulletproof. Oh, and they look bada$$ too....

If you ride a lot of tight woods, then you may look for something a little narrower than the CR hi. I like the height, could do with even less sweep, and wouldn't mind them an inch narrower (maybe even more).
If I somehow broke these, and had to get another set, I would maybe look at the Woods High bend (pretty much the same, only 1.5" narrower), or even the Pastrami Freestyle bend (1.5" narrower and 1" taller, with less sweep).
But then again, I don't know why you would listen to me, I loved the heck out of the big-@ss ape hangers I had on my Harley before Johnny Law made me take em off...

I'm about 30" from shoulder to shoulder anyway, so that will be just under my bark buster width (which is a good thing)!
