What handle bars do you suggest?

In which case I would snag the new ProTaper SE 7/8" bars (in CR HI) so you can use your existing bark busters & triple clamp.

I am going to get the Pro taper SE series in the CR hi bend. I just road a friends CR450f with the CR Hi Bend and I liked them a lot, gave me that warm fuzzy feeling....I liked the bike too just not as much as my BLUE BEAST! I am going to get them from RockyMountainmc.com for something around $60.00 I thought that was a fair deal considering the local dealer wants $99 for them.

They cost a few dollars more with having to deal with an oversize clamp, but they will probably be the last set of bars you have to deal with.
I have seen Pro Tapers and Renthal fat bars survive crashes that a handlebar should not have to deal with.

Have owned 4 sets of Protapers from 1994 to 2004 and have never bent one. Even crashed once in 1995 at 65mph on a paved road and watched the bike do cartwheels but never bent the bars.
Theres my testimonial..and yes I crash...more than I like to
