i just bent the [@#$%&*!] outta my bars today ! but what a ride lol ! so now i need new bars, i want 7/8" bars since im thinkn of selling my bike to get an 06, if they have an aluminum frame so .. this way i dont have to change the clamps and just have something to ride for now... what do you guys suggest ? and what bend do you like ? i cant remember the bend i had on my other set of bars for my kawi .. but i do like the stock feel somewhat on the 450 !
also im looking at either, tag or pro taper .. im not really sure which one to get, anyone have any hard facts on which is stronger ? id really like to put the tags on cause they make em blue ! but if the pro tapers are stronger then .. ill go for those
