Handlebar suggestions?

1 post in this topic

I ride an 04 WR 450. It has a Scott's steering stablizer with the BRP /Scott Submount which adds overall height to the bars. I am currently using Pro Taper YZ High bars. I am 5 feet 11 inches and stand most of the time while riding. Generally, I prefer a higher bar bend because its easier on my lower back after a long day of riding.

I want the bars to be a little lower now that I have mounted the submount bar riser. The plan was to switch over to the YZ low bend. I would like the new bars to be an inch lower if possible. Unfortunately, it looks the YZ low bend is getting discontinued. Something about problems with Easton , the supplier, and Answer is introducing some new carbon based bars.

Any suggestions on what might work best for me. I like Pro Taper over Renthal bars but maybe I need to reconsider. Thanks for your time.
