Handlebar help!!!!

Recommended Posts

Long story short. Bike+tree=bent bar. :banghead: Although throughing a KLX into a tree I'm really surprised that all that happend was a bent bar and busted front # plates

So this is my first year riding dirtbikes and choosing a handlebar for a dirtbike is a lot harder than choosing some clipons for my sportbike.

So what kind should I get. I'm a short guy. 5"2' The only thing I know right now is the the bars are a little to wide for me. But I have no clue what the diffence between a cr bend and a kx bend is.

HELP

Thanks

Visit your local shops and check out a number of bars to see what feels good to you. I don't think you need a taller bar unless it's just more comfortable for you.

Also take a look at this thread for bike set up: https://thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=172729.

My guess is you want to stay around 28" after cutting them down. Just make sure you leave room for hand guards. (I'm sure those are on your list if you don't already have them...)

Good Luck! :banghead:
