Since this is your first post, let me say welcome to TT :mad: It's kind of hard to make suggestions when we don't know much about you (height, year of bike, etc) but I will say that Pro Tapers or a similar fat bar are really the way to go. If you have an 06-07 they will bolt right into stock clamps, on 05 and prior bikes you need a new top clamp or adapters to use oversize bars like Pro Tapers. Also, the bend of the bar will depend on your height and riding style- I have long arms, so I went with Windham bends on my 06. If you have shorter arms or just plain don't like tall bars, then you can go to Pro Taper's website and view a chart of the different bar bends they offer. Hopefully that helps, and enjoy the forums, there is a wealth of information here.

Not completely true. Pro Taper also makes a bar for the 05 and older (7/8) bikes that does not require an adapter. Check out the SE.

A lot of people make 7/8 bars, and good ones, too. But what the cowboy is saying is that there is an intrinsic advantage to running fat bars without a cross brace like the Contour. None of those will fit the '05 or earlier clamp without buying, building, or boring something.

Twinwalls may never bend, but I've heard several instances of them cracking from vibration. Myself I'm just not a Renthal fan, and with the price difference between even Renthal Fatbars and the Twinwalls I don't think the Twinwalls are worth it.

I have also heard that the Twinwalls are very rigid and transmit(vibration) a lot of the track to the rider...just what I have heard never tried a set myself.
