Does anyone have a suggestion for replacement bars. Would like to have something higher and possibly a little wider, but with out replacing cables or wiring. Brand or part # ?.
Thanks Big T.

I just installed tag 1 1/8 bars with pro taper risers,about 1-2 inches higher,wider than stock, feels great,cost about 65$,using stock cables.
I installed some surplus MSR ATV Low handlebars on my TW I bought for my V Strom. They are about 1" taller than stock, and about 1.5-2" wider than stock. They were less than $30. I also added some 2" aluminum risers I found on E-bay for $19.00. As someone who likes to stand on the pegs while riding-this works great for me and I was able to use the stock cables.20160422_185437_resized.jpg
I used the ATV High bars from here, new grips from Amazon.
I pulled the headlight assembly, and ran the cables behind the triple tree to get more slack, pretty easy, and I have enough slack to add a riser if I want more height.

may just pull the plug on some high bars and figure it out
With the ATV high bars, I can see some of the road in my mirrors now too, not just my shoulders.
Found something very cool for figuring out riding geometry. ..Motorcycle Ergonomics
Looks like I want to go 3" up and 3" forward (which is probably about the distance I moved my stocks forward) on the bars and 2" forward on the pegs....which is about what I visualized as comfortable but very cool to see what changes do to the ergonomics
Now to find someone to make me new footpeg brackets that relocate as well as accept yz footpegs...and also would need to extend brake and shift levers...for a riser for handlebars has anyone tried rox anti vibration risers?
