They're handlebars. Tried and true CR high bend, still the best off-road bend in my opinion.

Don't know much about what makes a good set of aftermarket bars but when my factory raptor 350 bars bent in a rollover, I chose these because I've heard good things about pro taper and they were cheap compared to others. I haven't really thrashed these bars but I have road a little and from what I can tell they are a good quality part.
Just really put the to the test last weekend, great bars!
I've put Pro Taper bars of some form on all my bikes, dirt and street. These bars take a beating and stay true. They're very hard to bend.
this product was easy to install and feels great
Super easy to install and very comfortable for me since I am 6'2" with long arms
Can't beat price plus you get pad which is like 15 20 bucks by itself. Easy to put on look great. Very happy.
These handle bars look great on my Honda crf250r. Vary pleased with the color. The RED really stands out. The quality is unbeatable and the price was great with my fast cash discount. #Motosport #ProTaper #1
Perfect fit. Great product!
Second set of these and love the looks and the feel.
For the price these bars are the best of the best.Very high quality.
I installed these bars on a xt225 that I have for back roads and trails.
The bike is so much easer to Handel this type of riding now.
I'm 6'2" and had trouble with stock bars while standing. This not only fixed that but I set up straighter and have a better feel of this bike with these bars. The bike even feels bigger under me. When installing on xt225 the stock control cables will work but you have to take tank off and loosen and rearrange them. The driven sport bike grips work great for these bars also.
Bike: 2001 Yamaha YZ426f. Handlebars were easily installed. The spacing to expect between the clamps was much appreciated. Have already gone down hard on the left side which bent my previous pair, but these are still holding strong. I purchased the CR low which have a little bit wider grip than the old bars. I would recommend taking a few quick measurements to verify the type that is currently on your bike. I haven't been around dirt bikes enough to know the feel of every option. It would also be beneficial to give MotoSport a call to see if they have any recommendations based on the type of riding you do.
I got the YZ low bend and really like my choice. They're way nicer than the weak steel bars that came on my bike. The bend is just what i was looking for, they're very light and feel very strong. Easy to fit, and have a cool silver finish(I got the silver ones).
I just put them on my CRF230f and they fit, and look awesome!
The stock handle bars on my 2007 DR650 fit great and I was looking to replace them with handle bars of similar shape/size.
When I pulled my old bars off (which were a little bent, but not completely mangled) and compared them side-by-side with the CR Mid bars, they looked very, very close to being a match.
If I were to do this over I'd go strongly consider going with the CR High bars - the rise is 1cm more, which would make it slightly easier to reach the bars when standing on the pegs. Again, the CR Mid seem to have about the same rise as the stock bars when side-by-side.
A couple of things:
- I drilled holes to in the CR Mid bars to match holes in the stock bars. I wouldn't recommend filing off the pegs in the turn signal housing as I expect they would twist without the pegs providing resistance.
- The CR bars have a stamped, textured pattern on the left end (clutch side) which increases the diameter slightly above 7/8th's which makes sliding the old equipment on the new bars difficult. So, I filed the texture down.
- I have Acerbis hand guards and the bar end inserts that fit the stock steel bars required grinding/filing to fit the CR Mid bars (different inner diameters between steel and aluminum bars).
- Last, I also have grip heaters on my bike. The grip heater for the throttle required no modification (it comes off with the throttle tube), however the grip heater for the clutch has to be reglued to the bar. I'm trying Pliobond first and if that doesn't work will try something like Gorilla glue as it sounds like it's heat resistant which will be important.
I have Pro Taper bars on both my DRZ400 and CRF250L. I'm happy with what I get out of them.. Do a lot of off road stuff so if this helps I think it's a great product..
the bars look good on my z400 just disappointed I couldn't use the pad
great looking bars. great quality.
Excellent bars, put them on my DR 650 and now I'm going to put them on my CR 250. I wanted a cross bar on both bikes and this bars fits the ticket.
