I currently have a set of twin wall high bend renthals on my 2010 yzf450 but thinking about going back to the standard protapers, does anyone believe that bar bend/height can affect handling or the feel of handling? not necessarily on my bike but in general.

Thanks Gray

The reason I asked was the fact that I feel like I am riding a harley and I have no feel in the frt end, I might put the standard bars back on and move them forward to the frt hole postion on the clamps, might be worth a try.

I actually just swapt the stock bars to a higher bend and felt much better.

I felt a little cramped with the stock bars.....specially coming in to corners standing up.

But this is so individual that it is almost stupid to discuss.
