Handlebars need to be raised for my 06

7 posts in this topic

Hey TT'ers!....On my 06 450 the handlebars seem to be to low and I would like to raise them up some but I cant seem to find the way to do it. I have a Tag revolution upper triple clamp that is for the oversize handlebars 1-1/8. I cant see a way to raise the bar height,.......the bar height right now seems to be a little low for my likeings and would like to raise them a bit. Does anyone know how I can?......BTW the revolution clamp dont have the single clamps to hold the bars....it has the T-Bone style clamp with rubber cussions on the bottom of the clamp base.

You need bars that have a taller bend, or new clamps that are risers. I am 6'1 and I like the windam pro tapers, or the renthal 971's.

1. Look on tag's website.

2. Look on protaper 's website.

3. Compare specifications.

4. See if there is a match for the Windham bend on the Tag website.

5. Buy Tag handlebars if close match is found.

6. Install handlebars.

7. Start bike.

8. Ride bike.:ride:

^^^ or just buy the protaper windham bends. The protapers are excellent bars. By the way, I'm 6-3 and run the windham bends with stock clamps.

Also the stock 06 clamps are made for 1-1/8 bars, so why the change to the tag clamps?
