7/8 bars pics

Anyone have pics of a 7/8 bar other than stock? Pro tapers, Renthal ,Zeta. Im trying to get an idea of what to go with . I have two drz" s , the stock bars just aint doing it.

I see a lot of people bemoaning the stock bars...are these the Renthal Fatbars that came stock on my SM or do some DRZ's have different bars?

The guy at the dealer said something that suggested I was fortunate in what bars were on my bike, indicating there were multiple possibilities...

Sorry I dont have an answer to your question..not meaning to hijack

Yea the o5s comes with 7/8 shit bars. Your 08 sm comes equipped nicely guy.




7/8 Renthal CR High's

Sorry havent got much better pics.

Thanks Headster your last pic was the angle i was looking for.

Glad to be of service:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Do you know what bend you are looking for???

Cr high bend was my first choice. If i feel the need to go higher i would go with one of the universal 7/8 risers until comfortable. I looked at kx high but think its too high 4.25 compared to 3.74 on the cr high.

Pro Taper Carmichael bend SE aka 7/8.



Are they any higher than stock? Im looking to gain some height.

If your going to use risers,you could get 1 1/8'' bars.I like em much better than the 7/8'' new013.jpg

Carmichaels are low. If you want higher CR high might be a better choice.

The Pro Taper web site lists all the dimensions of their bars http://www.protaper.com/index.html

In my garage I have a front on view with a set of Renthal Button bends using rocky mountain rise adapter.....kinda gives you a perspective compared to the headlight and shroud?

Sorry no pics on this computer to upload....

renthal button bend is as high as the crhi but doesn't pull back as much. It opens up the cockpit nicely:thumbsup:

Headster, the mirrors in the pics... what model are they?

they look like APA Supermoto / Dual Sport Mirror from:




I made them myself.

Car Blind spot mirrors 3" Diameter

and some rubber straps :thumbsup:

i used TAG X5 bars.



excellent, thx guys.


pro taper 7/8 RM bend .

Renthals... cant remember which bend :thumbsup:

(And DualStar mirrors)

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
