For those who have the trailtech clamp, what bend bars did you go with? Are they higher or lower than stock? I orderd the clamp, but prefer pro-tapers and am not sure if I need to get the low or high bend.
The TrailTech X-Bars come in 3 different bends.
The Low bend is 1/2" shorter than stock preadtor bars.
The Standard bend is the same height as the stock predator bars.
The High bend is 1/2" taller than the stock predator bars.
I don't know about other brands but I would assume they kind of follow the same standards. I bought the Strandard bend X-Bars and I like them. I am 6'1" so i needed the same height as the stock bars.
I have the hi bend bars and frankly they seem too low for me. They also don't very much sweep. My hands get a lot more sore and tired with them. I just ordered some Tag T2 bars for a banshee, they are about 1 1/2" higher and swept back another inch. I'll let you know how they work when they arrive
John S., what bend pro-tapers and what bend trailtech's do you have? I am trying to figure out how they compare. I have always run cr low-bend pro-tapers on my 250R's and on a scrambler I use to have, but something tells me with the way this quad ergonomics are that the hi bend pro-taper would be required to achieve the stock bar height that I am looking for. I have to order something in the next couple days or I won't have them in time for my next big ride.
I have the silver KX HI bend protapers. They seem to be close to stock if not a little higher. The only other bar that was taller is the Pastrana freestyle bars. I didn't like those cause they were too narrow. The ATV bends are swept too far back. The KX HI bend have the best combination of sweep/height for me.
