I also went with a Windham bend... and then added a 10mm riser on top of that. The stockers were way too low for my riding style.

When I was going through the whole process, I contacted ProTaper re: the height/bend of the stock bars. Don't know if it's accurate or not, but the rep from ProTaper told me that the Yamaha bars were 'closest' to the Carmichael bend in their current product line.

I've seen other references on this site and others where people say the stockers are closes to the CR-Mid bend.
