Replaced the stock handlebar:

With a ProTaper KX High Bend from HDB:

The ProTaper came with the w/Threaded Inserts already installed . The HDB Handguards fit better on the new bars than on the stock.

The new bars do not come pre-drilled with the holes for the right starter and left controls assemblies.

The differences between the bars are very subtle. The tips of the new bar are a little higher and it has less pullback. As a result, the new bar is a little wider and taller than stock. This means the grips are slightly more horizontal so the outside of my palms are not pointing down towards the ground as much as on stock.

Didn't get a chance to take it out for a long ride yet, but initial impressions is positive.
