Pro Taper EVO on 2006 XR650L

I'm considering upgrading my stock bars to the Pro Taper EVO 1 1/8" Carmichael which is a short bar in height. Rise is only 40mm. I'll also need the Pro Taper mounts which are only a 3/4" rise. Will my stock cables be long enough for this swap? Thanks!!

Yep, they will be fine.

Thanks! I will place the order:)

Yes, I used the Moose 50mm risers and the cables fit - barely.

akarob,

What bars did you go with? Do you know the height and rise by chance?

Ive been running rox 2" risers with protaper Carmicheals for about 2 years with zero issues. Cables fit fine.

50mm = something like 1.96 inches so you should be good.

Hers a pic. Sorry no close ups of the bars. I could upload smoe later.

I got Pro Taper Woods High Bend. Any one you choose will be light years ahead of the stock bars.

The install was a snap. Big difference over stock!!

What fork protectors are those? Did you also install a fork brace? Looks like new rear sprocket. Did you go to 48? I only dropped my front to 14.
