I have a 2008 WR450F and I need to do a few upgrades...
First are the handlebars. The bike came with the Renthal Twin Walls 997 bend, the ones with the crossbar. They are OK, but the crossbar is a pain to deal with when mounting accessories such as Trailtech Voyagers or other GPS based toys. I also feel that the bend isn't the greatest for a riding standing up (which I try to do as much as I can considering how rock hard the seat is on that bike...).
So I was wondering what people recommend as an alternative. I am 5'9" tall.
I am looking at the TrailTech X-Bars and it looks like they are a tad lower than the Renthal 997 (95 vs 99mm) and have more sweep (62 vs 54mm) which I assume isn't the direction I want to go.
Pro Taper recommends the YZ High, with a height of 84mm (so lower than the either the Renthal or Trailtech) but with less sweep (52mm).
Any suggestions / recommendations?
That thing is hard... really hard! Any alternatives with a foam that's a little easier on my heinie?
