Thanks in advance for your help!

Your stock bars are a weird shape anyway so they're probably not bent it's just the way they are.
Renthal 615-01 is your answer.

I bought these for my Scram


and they're now on my Tiger800XC.


Same height as the OE but with a really comfortable bend. Hope the photos give you some idea of their shape.

Thanks for the suggestions on handlebars. I went on triumph rat and found the measurements for stock bars:
28" wide
5" rise
8" pullback
5.5" center
These will help me home in on a new set! Thanks for all your help!

Mine will be for sale soon, so shoot me a PM if you're interested. I'm just up the road in the Denver area.

Don't know how tall you are but I found the bars to be too low, which caused significant neck pain. The problem was cured with a 1" riser underneath the bars and a slightly lower seat (Bonneville seat.) No issues at all after that!

I put 1" risers and pro taper 'Raptor' bars. Which are the tallest pro tapers I believe. No cable issues. Perfect height for me.

my 06 is all stock and for me, it's the most comfortable bike I have, or have had in a long time. I'm 5'10".

Got my bike back after mods. Fantastic. Airbox elim, pipe, map, suspension front and rear. Love it. Haven't uncorked the arrow yet. With baffles its obviously louder than stock, but I'd still like it louder. Hopefully baffle removal will be the ticket. I love hearing the open airbox, sounds like a mini stroker v8. Took me 24 bikes and almost 20 years but I'm now a firm believer that an upgraded suspension is the best money spent on a motorcycle.


*** Update
Baffles out.
Now THATS how a triumph should sound.

Glorious. Loud, yes. Perfect IMO. Probably put the baffles in for long long trips. Otherwise. Excellent.

My impression exactly on the baffles out for the Arrow. Was a little disappointed on the way home when I put mine on, removed baffle as soon as I got homeand.....sounds like a Triumph should. Suspension parts ordered and on the way.

Ricor cartridges with Ohlins springs and 5w oil.

Ikon Performance Shocks

I tried to have a fork brace installed but they're telling me I'll either have to lose my front fender or my fork boots. I don't want to lose either. So I skipped it.

The fender mount bracket on the Scrambler and the Thruxton is pretty stout and works pretty well as a fork brace. I had a Bonneville that I put a fork brace on and could tell a difference on it. But I sold the Bonnie and bought a Thruxton and transferred the fork brace to the Thruxton and couldn't really tell much of a difference. Consequently I never put one on my Scrambler and it feels just fine. I think you front end will feel pretty good with just the Ricor's & springs.

Here's some shorter gaiters if you still want to use the brace:

BTW, I'm patiently waiting for pics of your bike with the Arrow installed
That red and silver with black rims is pretty sweet!

New gators enroute. Ignore the horrible horrible front signals still lingering.
Cell phone pics. Will upload fancy pics later.
