Renthal 7/8 Bars

Recommended Posts

I'm going to get this within a week or so. I don't think I'll need oversized mounts or anything. It doesn't say anything about them. The bars I have now are Tag bars I'm pretty sure. I like the way the Renthal's feel. So, does anyone have them? How do they feel? Need oversized mounts? O and one more thing, I'm going to get the all black ones, but the only all black comes with a red bar pad. It's not like, color/machine specific is it? Like Red is honda and such. I don't see how it would be but rather then wasting my time...

7/8" bars are the standard size. Except for the new size Easton bar and clamp combo, oversized bars are 1 and 1/8". They are not color or machine specific. One big difference is in the different "bends" available. Look on the Renthal site to see some comparison of how the various measurements are taken for handlebars.

Yes, I know what the bends mean. I think I'm going to go with the most natural bend out there. Unless I can feel the other bends on a bike.

If you really don't know what you like, you should go to a bike shop and hold a few different bars. I like them tall and flat (less pullback) so the Carmichael bend or the bend I'm using now suits me.

Whatever bars you pick, make sure you write down what bend they are and the measurements. That way when you wreck that set, you may want to change the bend a little and you'll have something to go by.

I like the ones on my old XR200 they work well . I prefer the flexx bars on my KX for real riding.
