wanting a higher set of bars and according to protaper website the whindham rm mids seem to fit the bill.Anybody run these and how do you like them?I have had pastrana fmx and didn't like the downward slope on the grip part,always got cramps in my forearms,the windhams don't seem to be as angled.The 1's I have now are marked ATV and are not bad but would like a bit more height,on the 426 they were nice as the barclamps were on top the original but now they are just the protaper clamps on the yz with not as much height.Another set that looks good are the CR high but I'm leaning towards the whindhams.

I put the Windham/RM bend on oy 06 450 and it completely changed the handling characteristics of the bike (for the much better!). I had always been a Renthal /CR bend guy, so it took a little getting used to (they are a bit straighter and higher) but they worked well enough that I put them on my other 2 bikes!
