XR650R, using Scotts triple clamp and Scotts damper so I can't change my risers. But I need more height on my bars - lots more.

Currently using Pro Taper Evo Windham RM. These are already quite tall.
Any suggestions for taller 1" bars?

Thanks

Here is a web site that list all the bar heights. I am 6'3" & went with the RTT stabilizer because of this reason.

how much are you gonna raise it? you may not go that high so you can get some extra reach outta the stock cables. Martin put on risers see if he had to get new cables. MARTIN......

i have Scotts triple clamps with a bit of rise, and and Acerbis Sahara tank, that takes a bit of slack out of the cables. Then also they have to be routed round the dipstick mount of my Scotts damper. Cables are at their max, and I want to put on taller bars, so I need a few more inches.

Check out my garage... I have just installed the Pastrana Bars, and I am still running the stock cables. I have the BRP triples, with the standard rise. I am 6'3", and these are much nicer then the CR Mids that came with the bike.

thanks, Pastana bars are what I'm getting. I'll give it a try with stock cables.
Where did you get the black stickers for the side and front number plates?

The numberplate backgrounds are from N-style, pre cut for XR650R'S. In the photos, the bike is in Dual Sport trim, with a Baja Designs Quick release kit on, but I removed the BD's white front plate sticker and made a custom black sticker for the front plate to match the side plates. (The stock front plate is different in size from the BD'S front plate) You can also buy sheets of the material and custom cut the plates if you want, as I did with the front BD'S plate.

I got the Tusk T-10 Aluminum Handlebar ATV Sport Bend Red bars and love them. They are the tallest AL bars with minimal sweep. Its a 6.25" rise. They were cheap, but I liked them better than my $90 DeMarrini double wall. They don't transfer near as much vibration.

I am 6'4" and still looking for another inch or two so I may also do risers.

Does the pro-taper "cr high" bend have less sweep than the junk stock bars?

Anybody???

I just got a new "leftover" 2005 650R and am looking at getting a new clamp/bar setup. I'm going to get the full BRP triple clamp combo (not the sub mount) and am trying to decide which bars to get with it. I'm between the pro-taper CR High or the Windham. They're only a few millimeters different so perhaps I'm being to picky. The Windham is a bit taller and straighter. I'm coming off a 2003 YZ250 and am 6ft tall and a pretty aggressive rider. Thanks for any advice. Brian
