Good advice there. I had Jimmy Buttons on my 426 when I had the stock triple, they were great. Then I scored a Tag top triple at a bargain price, which is 10mm higher than stock. Now I have Reikon High's, which are virtually the same as JB's.
If you're staying with the stock clamps, renthal Jimmy Button Highs.

Try the Windham bend ProTapers. Tall rise great bar.
I beleive this is the bar I use... don't remember.. I know I aasked for the highest bend they made....any way... They are great, the fit is perfect standing or sitting.

The larger diameter 'fat' bars aren't any fatter up near your controls, so all your stock levers and switchblocks will be fine. As for being better than 7/8" 'bars, generally they are stronger, and resist bending better than the 7/8" size 'bars. Although personally, i've NEVER bent a set of 7/8" Renthals. I have bent/snapped plenty of steel and cheaper alum' 7/8" 'bars though.....
If I switch to a 1 1/8" bar do I have to get knew mounts for my clutch and brake levers, kill switch and headlight switch? Is this type of bar any better then the 7/8" bars?
