Different Renthal Sizes??????

10 posts in this topic

Yeah I am going to pick up some of Renthals Twinwall Handlebars but I really have no clue as to what the differences are between their sizes

They have McGrath, Carmichael, CR High, Emig, and Windham

Anyone have any suggestions, I am 5'8" (lil small for wr450) BUT still lovin this MEAN ASS ride.

I happen to like the bend of the stock Renthal bars on my 05. I just want to up grade to either Renthal twin wall or Pro Taper fat bars. I haven't made up my mind as to which ones I want, but I am not that picky about the bend. The current bend is just fine. :banghead:

With the Twinwall Bar is the inner diameter a factor to consider when ordering Barkbusters (handgaurds), Moose's product imparticular. They list three sizes Magura /KTM, Flex series/Pro Series/Fatbar, and 7/8. I believe the fatbar size is what would be needed, is this correct?

Can't say for sure, but when I asked about the Pro Taper mount kit for my acerbis guards, I was told they will not work with the Twinwalls.

If I were you, I would just wait untill you bend the stocko's.

It won't take much to bend them.

My missus bent hers just by dropping her bike, I bent mine by washing out in a corner.

Just a slight bend in your bars can really throw off your riding. I got new bars and kept the old ones for spares.

Yeah I Looked At The Posted Link To Renthal And Found That The Outter Portion Is 7/8 So More Common 7/8 Barkbusters And Controls Can Be Used. But The Diameter At Bar Mounts Is 1 1/8 So I Guess Its Like A Pro Taper Bar But Not Tapered Just Stepped Instead!!

Only problem is, the hand guard mounts on the end fit inside the end of the bar. I'm pretty sure the Twinwalls have a thicker wall than the 7/8 bars (smaller I.D.) The O.D. is 7/8 at the end so your controls and grips will fit.
