New to dirtbiking. Just destroyed my stock WR450 bar. What to do now? What is a good upgrade? ... the stock bar seems very soft. Keeping in mind I may do some motard this spring, should I get a new triple clamp that is damper capable?

Thanks!

That is really your best option. I bent 4 bars in a year, broke down and bought triple clamps to fit a set of FAT bars and haven't bent them yet.

I got a great deal from BTOSports.com, & you get to choose the bend & color of the bars & the type (wr/yz) & color of the clamp & mounts. :cry:

That is correct, however, you don't have any choice on the bar color or bend & the clamps only fit the '04-'05 YZ (WR forks are smaller diameter, except for the '05's, which got last year's yz forks with different valving) & there is also no choice of color or style (yz or wr with odo mounts) on the clamp, not to mention the fit & finish on the wrap clamp I got is far superior to the $159 one IMHO.

I know because I bought one of those before I found out it did'nt fit, the clamp for the yz has larger diameter holes for the fork tubes, it would clamp down on the forks, but probably not tight enough to keep them from rotating during a crash.
