Definitly ProTaper KX High, I was told that was the highest bend available. Where are you guys getting your higher clamps from ???

Mine came from Rocky Mountain. Its a Longhorn brand. :crazy:

6'3" isn't really so tall that it needs the highest bars available. My son is 6'3", and is quite happy with the Pro Taper Windham bends on his '06.

I tried the YZ High bends before and now have the Henry/Reed Bend and like them both just fine. I am 6'3" also. I liked the YZ High bends better of the two though.

yeh i plan on getting the Windham bend especially since grey has solved evry problem ive ever had. I was just wondering with the clamp bing 32 mm high, plus the higher bars and the clamp moved forward if the cables would all be long enough? I really dont want to have to get new ones.

I have some pro taper pastrana fmx plus some 1.5 inch bar risers on my '06. For a total of about 2.5 inches higher than stock. All of my cables reached BUT I have a rekluse with a left hand rear break so I cant speak as to whether the clutch cable would be long enough. The front brake just barely makes it. The Throttle cable and the hot start cable were just a little too short (by 1/2 an inch maybe) so they had to be rerouted in front of the bars. Now they have plenty of length and could probably be stretched another 1 inch. I have ridden it for a few hours since I rerouted the cables and everything works perfect.
