922's here. A bit high with my Fastway pegs set in the low setting but I am an old Cunzor and it helps with lower back pain lol

 

997's would be about right if your not too tall.

Im 6'0 and I dont like the bar height currently....not comfortable when standing.  Maybe the 922s would be a better choice for me.

With stock bar, 1" bar riser from a guy in FL on ebay does wonders.

Otherwise, adapters with 1 1/8" Protaper Carmichael bend works pretty well too.

Any pictures?  Which one on ebay did you go with?

Bars are a personal thing, I ran the 922's with the stock pegs and they were about right for me- I am 5'10. I fitted the fastway pegs in the low position to sort out the peg to gear lever ergos. If you have back issues OR like to spend a lot of time standing then IMO tall bars are the go. I generally try and duplicate the ergos of my adventure bike as I spend 99% of my time standing on adventure rides. Another benefit of high bars is it makes getting over the back / adjusting balance a lot easier as well eg: whoops etc

Bar risers for 1" bars.  I used this on my 03 YZ250F.

2004 525MXC KTM 04 525 MXC Pro Taper 1 1/8" handle bar

I chose this bar because it is flater, has less sweep or is straighter in the wrist area, and has rise vs low.

I look for 52 or 53 sweep, its straighter.  I used this on 05 Wr250F since I sit down more on it.
