They look like the same pro bends ones I have. They will pretty much any bike with some patience but you need to know which size clamps they come with that attach to the handle bars.

Cheers mate, yes he says there for pro tapers but its just the clamps look different to some other U-clamps ive seen so thought they may be the older style maybe?

They're Pro Bends, but those are not U clamps, they're right fit clamps.

Thanks. :thumbsup: So are they actually inferior in any way to the U-clamps, being an old style???

tweav, did you have any fitment issues with them and are the bars actually on line with the brake/clutch levers as i cant tell in the picture. It looks like the mounts are almost touching the cables so theres no way of lining the hand guard bars up with the levers???

yes the cables are nearly touching . I could get a little more room with the u-clamps ,but that's where I like my controls to be set , so for me the newer clamps would be better . If I remember right I think I may have bent the banjo end on the brake line down some .

I am considering the PRO BENDS as well, but off subject, what kind of bar clamps are those? They look like what I've been looking for to raise mine about an inch without having to get a taller bend bar. Also on the clamps will they work with the stock triple clamps, I noticed you have Applied ones.

Thanks, Stroker06
