Need 10 mm rise 06 450-Advice please

I have done some searching and found very little on where to get bar risers that give you 10mm of rise for our beloved 06 YZ 450F's. I tried the washer stack and that only gave me 6 mm before running out of threads to bolt the stock riser back on. Also, after a get-off I bent one of the handlebar risers. I read about the GYTR risers and how they can be height adjusted 5mm higher (how do they accomplish that-- a spacer?). They also move the bars 5mm forward. I could probably get used to that because if the bars get raised then they begin to move backward due to the angle tilt on the stock risers.

I know other people have made the 10 mm up switch. Do you have to use higher bars as the only viable method?

are you going to replace the bent one anyways? Initialy a bar would be cheaper to get a rise with stock mounts. I got a windham bend.....

go see a CNC shop, it will be pricy. But it would be what you want

I bought some 10mm risers from a TT member. They work, but the studs on the bar clamps no longer reach the locking part of the nut. I put Locktite in there and check them from time to time, so far so good. Eventually I want to get an Applied clamp with the different offset and I'll get the 10mm higher set when I do.

Check out the pro taper p3 triple clamp. You can get different risers for it (stock 35mm) up to 55mm. You can also adjust them forward and back 6 positions?? I have the 55mm risers with the windham bend bars. Works good

I bought the GYTR risers for use on my 06 450 (with stock bars) to deal with my height of 6 feet.

I did the 5 mm up and 5 mm forward position and its perfect for me. Was going to mod them a bit to get another 5 mm of height but decided it would be too much for my riding style.

I like the stock bar bend and since its impossible to identify which bar bend they actually are I was afraid that I would order a Windham or Henry bend and find they had more sweep. Went for the sure thing.

What is the difference between a Windham bend and a CR high bend? They didn't have a Windham bend at my bike shop so I purchased a CR high... will it work or should I take it back and order a Windham bend???

THANKS!

The Windham bend is 14mm higher than stock (which is basically a YZ High bend), and has only 2mm more sweep, or pullback. The CR High is 11mm higher, but sweeps 8mm more. You may like it, you may not; everyone is different. 8mm at the bar ends doesn't seem like that much, but it might feel like more in your hands.

I will tell you that we put Pro Taper Windhams on our new '06 before we ever rode it because my son is 6'2"+ and the bike has been panned for having bars that are too low. I have YZ High bars on my '03 that suit me nicely, and Junior has been riding a YZ250F with that same bar moved forward and up 5mm. Both of us like the Windhams on the '06 quite a lot, which surprises me a little because I'm 5'10". I got on his bike and was immediately faster and more comfortable than on my '03. A lot of that, of course, was just the bike, but the bars felt good....to me.

Note: the dimensions are from Pro Taper's web site, and bend dimensions vary from one mfg'r to the other. PT's "YZ High" is identical to Tag's "YZ" bend, for example.

Thank you very much for the info.

I'm taking the CR high back and getting a Windham.

How did the Gytr risers give 5 mm more height?

I have a set of like new pro moto billet 10mm forward and 10 mm up risers and a set of like new windham bend bars platinum color, 2 rides on them.I just upgraded to the pro moto billet sub mount risers and scotts stabilizer so I had to go back to low bars pm me if interested.

Thanks, Mike
