Handle bars and clamps

I've been reading for a looong time about the handle bars, s/v clamp
but I'm still having a hard time deciding what to do with the handle bars.
I got the CCP steering damper ordered and what I'm not sure of is if I
should bite the bullet and order the Precision S/V clamp or try the
Trailtech clamp with the 1 1/8" bars. I'm trying to save a little cash here
but on the other hand I do have a $40 gift card to Rocky Mountain
to ease the pain of the S/V clamp.

My other issue is I want to replace the handle bars no matter what but I
have no idea what to go with especially when it comes to width, height
and pull back. Do I get low or medium rise bars? How should I determine that?

I'm actually leaning toward the Trailtech clamp and bars but I have a strong
feeling everyone is just going to say go with Precision S/V.

Will I need longer brake lines or cables or will they be long enough
once I remove the facotry guide brackets?

Thanks guys!

hard to say what bars you should get, its all just what you prefer, i really like the protaper windham bend. right now i have stock bars with a 1.6 in riser and that is as tall as you can go with stock brake line and clutch cable, motion pro makes a +2 cable and streamline has a very nice front brake line +2 kit, which i have both of them and a 3in riser to try soon.

So after reading post going back to 2010 and my eyes going completely cross-eyed I kinda came up with a list of handle bars. One of the things I read which seems to be one of my problems is that I'm leaning forward on the bars and putting extra pressure on my hands. So I want to try and find a little taller bar with maybe a little more pull back, I think. I came up with this list of my choices.

It didn't seem to help one single freakin bit after all that research!



Pro Taper EVO's
cr high bend - 31.50 wide X 3.74 high X 2.45 pull back
Windham/RM Mid - 31.50 wide x 3.90 high x 2.13 pull back
Woods high bend - 31.50 wide x 3.74 high x 2.56 pull back

Pro Taper Coutour
atv mid bend 31.50 wide x 4.25 high x 2.21 pull back
atv low bend 31.50 wide x 3.74 high x 2.37 pull back
cr high bend 31.50 wide x 3.74 high x 2.37 pull back
cr med bend 31.50 wide x 3.23 high x 2.24 pull back
Windham MX 31.50 wide x 3.90 high x 2.13 pull back

Trail Tech
ATV high bend 31.10 wide x 4.21 high x 2.44 pull back
ATV mid bend 31.10 wide x 3.74 high x 2.44 pull back
ATV low bend 31.10 wide x 3.27 high x 2.44 pull back

Renthal Twinwall
Cr high - 31.29 wide x 3.74 high x 2.44 pull back

I have pro taper evo bars on my XX, and there isn't enough room for all of my controls. I have to take of my powermadd hand guards to make sure everything that needed to be there is, and it's still too cluttered.

Not what I wanted to hear since I need hand guards and a gps mount also on there.

I am in the same boat as you and just posted a new thread before I saw yours. The whole handlebar thing can be quite confusing. I would like to know what setups will allow us to keep the same cables?

Ohhh yeah I have that in my favorites already and it is a great looking setup by the way! I can't find any black Trail Tech bars on any site right now. I may have to call them or go with the ProTaper or Renthal Twinwall.
