YZ450 replace stock handlebars? Reccomendations

Just picked up an 06 YZ450f. It still has the 5XC stock bars on it but they are tweaked and I would like to replace them. I am a bigger rider, 6ft 240. Any advice on replacement bars? I mostly trail ride at this point and am a novice rider.

Thanks!

I very much recommend the Windham bend. They are a little tall at first, but also place your hands forward of the original position, which gives you more room to stand over the bike in a more relaxed posture, and improves the handling as well.

Windham BEND Rocks!!! That what I Did!!

Thanks for all the great info, I am going to try a set with the Windham bend. I found these at MotoSport, do I need clamps too or will the stockers fit this bar?

The stock clamps will handle all 1 1/8' bars, including those.

I also have the Renthal Twinwall Windham bend bars and I love them! Very strong!

Thanks everyone!
