Tired of Windham RM Mid Bend on 06 YZ450

7 posts in this topic

I am 6 feet tall and went with the Pro Taper RM Mid on my 06 450 and now I think they are to tall. I am an aggressive novice (top 3) at 6' 190 and I think I need a lower bar. These bars are great when standing but I find they are difficult to control when seated. Has anyone ridden with the RM Mid and changed to a lower bar? If so what did you go with? I am looking for a step or two down and any recommendations on sweep is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, I do not have the option to test them all so i am looking for some advice. Thanks....

Try the Henry/Reed bend. They're about 10mm lower than the Windham. I like them.

That's the bend that I used. I felt like the Windham bend was too tall also. The Henry/Reed bend allowed me to feel more aggressive on the bike.

I have an '06 YZ450 and 6 ft. also. I went with the Pro Taper Contours-Factory Suzuki bend. They are the same height and the Reed/Henry but have 10mm less swep. Meaning they are a little straighter and in my opinion, could help with armpump when riding with your elbows up.

I run the Windam bend with my Renthal Twinwall bars and I love them. I actually got the bar suggestion from people on here and it seems like a lot of people use them.
