i just got some new bars for the tdub and wanted to share how everything went. i got a set of renthal 7/8" atv bars. they are actually for a yamaha yfz450, black in color. also some renthal grips from the kevlar reinforced dual compound MX series. the bars are not the same demensions as stock, they are about 1.25 inches less in width and are about 5/8" higher overall. bars that are more narrow seem to be better on the road during a s-turn or a plain ole sharp turn. the install could not have been easier, all the stock controls fit the bars very well. on the stock bars on the throttle side you will see two holes up on the handle area. on the back of two of your controls youll find little nubs that fit in those holes. the plastic nub can be sliced off with a razor knife and the metal nub can be ground down or filed. doing that will allow the controls to squarely bolt onto the bars. as of now i give the new set up two thumbs up! i got everything at motorcyclesuperstore.com $59.99 for the bars and $15.99 for the grips. shipping took 5 days and was $5.95 please let me know if the pics are good, i took them with my cell phone.

Looks good. I put the same bars on my Dad's TW earlier this year and he loves them. It allowed him to sit straight up, which lessened the fatigue on his shoulders.

My back used to give me grief after awhile at highway speeds. The windshield cured that and actually allows the bike to hold its speed better against a head wind. Might help your dad if he rides on the highway.Just a thought.

Wonder how well thatd work with some 1inch risers..id hate to lengthen the cables but i might have to


Not an issue. I went with 30mm tusk riser and jimmy button renthal aluminum bars. All cables were long enough. The brake cable was the shortest of the bunch, but it fit. it's great if I need to stand and gives a more upright posture while sitting.

no problems with cable length. i THINK you could go with one inch risers. i still have plenty of room to go with the new bars.

I'm looking for some atv high bars for the best price. There are tons to chose from. This is what i've come up with because these clearly state their dimensions-



http://www.powersportsuperstore.com/ProTaper-SE-Bar-ATV-High-Jet-Black-2110D-JET-p/4450886.htm .



It can be very tricky trying to find them on the internet but thats where the best prices are. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!



This is the main page i've been trying to sort through. Many of the descriptions are too vague to tell if they truly are high rise bars.

From the ProTaper website:



ATV HIGH 02-5257(Black),02-5279(Platinum),02-5235(Silver) width:813mm, height:160mm, rise:104mm, clamp area:236mm, pullback:100mm



1in=25.4mm



Based on the PowersportSuperstore dimensions, this would indeed appear to be the ATV High.



That is a ridiculously low price. I would give them a call prior to ordering to make sure it is in stock at that price.



I have these bars and really like them.

dont call just order. if ifs a mistake then its their fault and hopefully they'll honor the posted price.



bars look fine but idk about the light grips.



im glad i found this because i have back and sholder issues. might be my first mod after i get mine running.

The only difference between the ProTaper Pillow Top Regular Grips and the Pillow Top Lite Grips is that the Lite grips have a smaller overall diameter. They are constructed the same otherwise. They fit nicely over the SE bars.

like the bars but not the light grips, black would be better. Those light grips are really gonna show the dirt later....

Hey, I just noticed the OP's switch to white grips - that's what everybody means about 'light' grips. I thought PSC was posting about the ProTaper Bars and Grips.



I'd like to see a wider shot of the bike to see how those white grips look against the rest of the bike...

so far what ever dirt i get on them just washes off. something in the grips is supposed to not let dirt and grime penatrate keeping them clean looking. they still look just like the day i put them on. super tacky as well.

imho pro taper bars are on the soft side. i ride like a maniac sometimes and that means hittin the ground sometimes too. i switched to renthal bars cause they seem to hold up better for the way i ride, or crash.
