I had my dealer order me a few Renthal Twinwall handlebar bends to replace the stock Pro-Tapers. I settled on the RC Bend and it looks to be only slightly different, if at all (maybe a MM or 2 more sweep) from stock.

Anyone else run the RC Twinwalls on your YZ450F? Is the stock bend the same as the RC bend?

I have the Twin Wall RC bend. I love them. I can't really answer your question because I have the 06 yzf, that year the bend was very low for me. I'm 6'1. I'm pretty sure the rc bend is the tallest of the Twin Wall, comparable to the Pro-Taper K-Dub bend(in height). Anyways, I love the Renthals because they are so much stronger than any other BARS, if ya know what I'm saying. I seem to have better form when riding, easier to be in the attack position.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will like these bars a lot!

The Renthal Twinwall chart shows the RC High is 20mm taller than the RC, with the same width and sweep.
