Just wanted to sy that I added the Trailtech Xbars and predator logo clamp to my Predator. Trailtech did an excellent job on these things. They are easy to install and everything fits up very nice. If you are looking to upgrade bars on your predator i would recommend getting these. I got the bars and logo clamp direct from TrailTech for $145.
There are some pictures of them in my profile if you want to see what they look like installed.

I just ordered this setup yesterday, along with the computer and housing for it. I'm getting the polished bar with the high-bend. Looking forward to installing it!

How much higher are the hi bend bars compared to the stockers? The stock bars feel a little low to me.

The high bend is 1/2 inch taller than stock. the low bend is 1/2 inch lower than stock.

My stuff arrived today. VERY pretty! They were right... the casing for the computer is a part of the dashboard (the dashboard appears to be a bit different from the regular one). I can't wait to get it installed. I pick my Predator up tomorrow from the dealer... it's been there for three weeks getting the brake drag problem fixed. Dunno if it'll be fixed or not...

My only complaint so far is that the dashboard piece is kinda heavy. The handlebars are much lighter than stock, though, so maybe it'll even out.

Just that much more of a reason to call up Mettec and order in some titanium bolts for all your different fastener needs. Half the weight, never corrode, and stronger too. Hmmm, just another excuse to spend more ching. :D

I have been kind-of considering upgrading to the trailtech bars and clamp, aside from excellent looks what are the advantages of this setup over stock?

I've found the high bend bars to not only be great looking, but also verrrrry comfy.

When you first get them, you just set them on the table a droooool for a bit. Almost want to build a nice wooden frame and hang a set on the wall....o.k. that quad nut counseling isn't working the best. Doh! hehe

The trail-tech combo looks great, I've got the dash kit with the high polish high bar and the computer. The only thing wrong is that the magnet keeps popping off. I called trail-tech and they sent me another but it did it agian with in a five min ride. so if you get this product use the small magnet with JB weld not the magneted bolt that is in the kit. The bolt does not have enough glue holding the magnet in the bolt.

The magnet is held in the bolt by Magnatism. My magnet came out when I was screwing the bolt on but never since or while riding.

It's a cool thing the computer setup, I love mine.

where is the best place to buy the hi rise bar? Are these the same bars that show up on ebay once in a while?

The bars and the clamp are normally togeather on ebay, pro-tapers also fit the trailtech clamp. We too had a problem with the magnet popping off, I put some epoxy over the magnet and it has been fine since.
