CRASHED! Need bar help/suggestions?
Hey all. So, the inevitable has happened. I have gone and plowed into a tree and bent up my bars, A-Arms, and stem. I got the A-Arms and new Stem ready to go and now I just need to decide on the clamp and bar. I grew up riding an '88 Honda 250R and looking around on the intertubes, I am boggled as to how many bends and styles there are now. It's a bit daunting.
From what I can tell it looks like most of the 1 1/8 bars are taylored for dirtbikes and not ATV's. Not all, but moslty.
I do a lot of tight woods and trails riding, some XC and harescrambles (just for fun), so a bar with good height and clearance is important. My current setup was running the Renthal 7/8 611-01 (XR100 / TTR125) measures at 30.2" wide and 6.1" tall, which for me has good height and is not too wide.
So, my question to the community is: how many of us are using the 1 1/8 bars and what is your experience with them. Do you feel that the 1 1/8 has a significant performance advantage over the 7/8 or is it mostly rider preference and strength.
Just to clarify, I ride a Honda TRX700xx. Up front I am running Laeger +1 A-Arms, and a Houser +1 stem.. Stabilzer.... The closest I am finding in the 1 1/8 are the Raptor bend and maybe the RC High. I would appreciate any and ALL comments and/or suggestions.
Thanks in Advance guys (and gals)!
