    I thought they'd be too tall but for 20 bucks i took a chance. Found the bars at cyclegear locally.

    Had to re rout the throttle cables and was scratching my head on why the throttle was sticking. Loosened up the cables, moved it in just a bit and she works. As you can see theres a big difference from the stock bars. I can stand up and not be hunched over. They feel great and cant wait to try them off road. Even got some cushy new grips too! Me happy

    Those look real nice. You'll love the extra height.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Those grips do look comfy! So now you're running higher bars and risers? I just ordered some pro-taper atv high bars and put my old risers on the girlfriends ttr. They should be here tomorrow so i'll let you know the difference and take a pic or two.



    What is the deal with the holes near the throttle body? Are they pretty easy to drill?



    Also, the weeping from the brake reservoir seems to be a problem for many. I am going to see if the dealer will fix it while still under factory warranty.

    The stockers have two holes in them on the right side under the throttle housing. I've heard of some drilling holes in the new bars and some say they filed the "nubs" off of the housing itself so there is no need for the holes. What did you do? I havent taken mine off yet but will be doing it tomorrow.

    Bars came off an 08..and i dont remember seeing any holes on other bars listed on ebay. Maybe thats why my bike was faster.

    be careful with the pro taper bars, they are a softer metal than they claim. after bending three pairs in a lifetime of riding i thought i would test the hardness of the metal. i used an instrom hardness tester on the vickers scale and those bars are about 2/3 the hardness they should have been, makes me wonder if pro taper really makes them or if they just buy them and put there name on them. imho
