I run Scott's sub-mount with ProTaper Henry Reed bend on my 15 500 XCW.  I am 6'0"

Funny, that chart on Revzilla doesn't match the numbers on the Renthal site. Some of the numbers are way off.

I have a new CR high bar in the garage waiting to be mounted on my '13 500 EXC. I'm 6'0" with long arms. Been running the stock bars with 2" risers but just added a Scotts sub-mount (without risers) and plan to try a couple of different bends. RC high is probably next if I don't like the CR high, and/or maybe back to risers. I'm new to dirt riding so still trying to dial things in.

I have the REED/WINDHAM fat bars.. 👍 they work great. but they felt way to wide for me with the Cycra hand guards installed so I shaved off some of the width (24mm each side max!) for sneaking through the trees a little quicker. that is the maximum you can cut off the bars or else the clamps for the hand guards will not fit! They are maxed out for diameter size on the bar and almost hit the fork tubes. maybe 5mm clearance. Or you can try the BRP mounts.
