Anyone running a Renthal street fighter bars on the scrambler.
How do you like compared to your stock bars?
Which renthal bars closely resembles stock bar measurement?

I'm a 6'2" rider with a sleeve length of 27.5"
I'm looking for a bar which gives me more relaxed ride so which bar should I look for?

I'm using the ProTaper SE 'ATV MID'...

The height is about the same, more pull.





I initially wanted the 'HIGH' bend, but I didn't think the brake/clutch cables would be long enough...

What do you call a pullback?
Is it 'sweep' or 'control length'

Renthal streetfighter
Sweep - 80mm (3.14")
control length - 194mm (7.63")

Pro Taper MID ATV
Sweep - 76mm (2.99")
control length - 206mm (8.11")

Vintage

I am thinking of going with more a vintage style on my Scrambler and looking at these. I always liked the look of the 60's era Honda 305 Scrambler and there have had few pass through my garage in the past. These are very similiar and priced right.

shrini23,

That's OK to ask questions!

Yes, that model Renthal is higher with more sweep... I guess in my original post I should have mentioned that I had already installed a set of Jim's riser before switching the handlebar.

If you don't have riser, you might want to look at the 'ATV High' bend. It's got a 3.9'' sweep.
(Not sure the cables would be long enough for that bar and the riser)

-*-

Either brand should be good. I went because with the Protaper because I'd used them before (and I knew they resisted crash well) and I also wanted to have that crossbar.
