Which Protapers are these? 2007 YZ450

5 posts in this topic

Does anybody know? Are these the new EVO's or the standard protaper or is it the contoured one. And which bend is it? It appears the EVO's are replacing the regular one's. But only one color.

Maybe just made for Yamaha? Like stuff is made for Sam's club or Costco.

Even the dealer didn't know.

They are definitely not the evo's. The evo's are the new easton alumunim bars that just came out after pro taper realized they screwed up and got rid of easton. My guess is the yami's are the evo's that have a specific yamaha bend to them

The stock '07 bars are PT Contour 's (it's printed on the bars). The bend is Yamaha OEM specific. The EVO is PT's new top line bar. Yes they did break off their relationship w/EASTON. Not sure why, but $$$$ comes to mind. I plan on trying the EVO's as I don't paticularly care for the oem bend. The bummer is that they will not have as many bend offerings as before.
