raise my bars and move them forward ??

I have searched and searched but cannot find one site that offers a doodad that bolts on to my triple clamp and rises the bars and moves them forward.

I'm at my wits end.

Anybody ???

Any other suggestions ??

I already have quite a tall aftermarket bar but feel it needs to be about 1 inch taller and about 1 inch more forward.

lot's of companies do top clamps and offer you the chance to go back or forward by turning the clamps around. if you put "top clamp" in the 'search' and go back one year somebody managed to show about 20 different ones on a seperate link.

if you have standard TC's on a 98/99 they're bad, if they're on a 00/01 they're 10mm further forward.

don't forget to get the correct bend. i now have a set of carmichael bars that are straight with no 'sweep back' and they're right for me. this also took the bars 10mm forward in itself.

Have a look on the YZ400/426 site. There is a bit of info on such bar extenders -topic "Tall Bars": http://www.thumperta...TML/002603.html
Thumper Racing have them.

My 1999 Thumper Racing catalog has them listed in 1" or 1.5". they are called bar elevators. 1-800-259-5186 or maybe they have a web site now. :)
