I am shopping for new handlebars for my WR450 and I wanted to compare the stock handlebar specifications (height,pullback & width) to all the choices available. I am currently looking at Protapers but no dealers here have anything on hand to checkout.

I have just about every type of riding area available, mountains, open fields, tight woods, sand bars near rivers, logging roads, plenty of mud. So I am looking for the best all around choice. The stock bars seem too low to me but that may be my riding style. Suggestions appreciated. :)

I put CR hi bends on my 450. Great for sitting and standing. I am five ten tall. I dont think stock bars are listed anywhere, good luck.

I think the smart thing to do is pull your old bars off..(yes..I know it is a chore...) find another dealer who has them and compare them to others. I myself have the pro-taper woods bend. A little higher than stock. I am 6'3 and was pretty hunched on the stock bars. It is going to be a challenge to get the right fit, but once you do, it will make all the difference in the world!

I found the CR-HI to be very similar to the stock bar. I couldn't tell the difference between the two.
