I need to replace my handle bars and need advice as to the stock size (height, width and pull-back), recommendations for brands with out spending too much and where to buy it. Thanks

I have an '02 XRL and am fairly frugal. A friend gave me his XRR handlebars and what a huge differance it made. It cured the laid back, non aggresive position to one of a moto crosser. Sure it is not an aluminum after market one but it was free and made a huge differance. :cry:

I just bought a set of MSR Carbon Steel bars, CR height, (seem to be identical to my stock one) they were only like $25 or so, complete with crossbar pad ...

The most popular replacement handlebar is the CR and CR-HI bend.
