Where'd you get the bars? Are they just generic Superbike bars or Renthals or ?? Are the 7/8"?

Pro taper fatty bars. Love em!!! ;D

Found a set on ebay for 40 bucks off a YZ125. They are like 70 new. ;)

If I remember correctly they are 1" going through the riser and taper down to standard 7/8 so all the stock controls bolt right on. Therefore the name, Pro....."taper".

I used similar Fat Bars of the Phat Trakka and love the look. They come in different bends and colors too. IIRC mine came from fleabay.

Ah, cool...but too bad for me. All of my bikes have 7/8" mounts. :(

I see a lot of the fat bars for sale cheap on ebay. Are yours just a Super Bike bend or a factory bend? They look perfect.

You can get Fat Bar adapters that raise the bars an inch or so and slip into the stock lower bar mount. Or if you have rubber mounted bars, get the replacement clamps. All available on flebay.

That second pair of risers, the ones that bolt through the triple clamp, is what I used. Brought the top triple to a machine shop to drill the holes because I dont have a drill press. I think they are a "superbike' bend.
