Stock Bars too low

WR426 - Any suggestions for higher handlebars, I tried some ATV bars and they felt good but my cables are too short. Any idea for a happy medium?

they make a riser, it was on my 02 wr426 when i bought mine, PM me if you want it

I took my bars off and bought new Oneal thickwall aluminum ones. They are the "CR" bars, taller and fits me perferctly. I'm 6'0" tall. Lot eaiser on my shoulders, not hunched over. Didnt seem like much difference, but you sure can feel it riding over a long time.

Try the Windham bend ProTapers. Tall rise great bar.

I think the Pro Taper Pastrana FMX and the Factory 909 Brian Deegan are some of the highest handlebars besides the quad handlebars. I run the Pastrana FMX (121mm high) with Pro Taper adjustable rubber clamp in the most forward position and my cables are not an issue (03WR450). Not sure if I had the clamp in the most rearward position if I would have cable issues. Check the 909 and Pro Taper websites. 909 seems to have a larger selection of tall handlebars.

If you're staying with the stock clamps, renthal Jimmy Button Highs. :)

Good advice there. :) I had Jimmy Buttons on my 426 when I had the stock triple, they were great. Then I scored a Tag top triple at a bargain price, which is 10mm higher than stock. Now I have Reikon High's, which are virtually the same as JB's.

I bought some Universal Outdoor bars that are high and have very little sweep back. Love'um.

Try the Windham bend ProTapers. Tall rise great bar.

I beleive this is the bar I use... don't remember.. I know I aasked for the highest bend they made....any way... They are great, the fit is perfect standing or sitting.

I put Pro Taper SE KX High Bends on this year. They may seem a bit wide at first, but no more sore back after the riding. I have 2 rides with the new bars and I love 'em.

If I switch to a 1 1/8" bar do I have to get knew mounts for my clutch and brake levers, kill switch and headlight switch? Is this type of bar any better then the 7/8" bars?

The larger diameter 'fat' bars aren't any fatter up near your controls, so all your stock levers and switchblocks will be fine. :) As for being better than 7/8" 'bars, generally they are stronger, and resist bending better than the 7/8" size 'bars. Although personally, i've NEVER bent a set of 7/8" Renthals. I have bent/snapped plenty of steel and cheaper alum' 7/8" 'bars though.....

I have CR hi Renthal Fatty's on my 05 450 with a 10mm riser from Applied Racing. Everything fits right and with the GYTR handguard mounts it is very sturdy.
