I dig the sound and the look, but $300 bones seems alittle steep for what looks like a little endcap baffle

Oooopsie

Well, managed to drop the bike today on a curve and it's new handlebar time (amongst other things). I know there has been a lot of discussion on verious bars, but damned if I can find the posts. If anyone can give me a quick rundown on the hot setup or point me to the posts, I'd be very grateful.

FWIW, I didn't mind the stock set up at all but was gong to put on some risers on, so looking for something that might be a little taller than stock, not flat bars.

As to the bike, sliding along on the pavement for a while on its right side didn't do much except grind off a pretty good area on a header pipe, scratch the mufflers and gring down the side of the foot brake lever a bunch. Totally lost the front brake lever and brake fluid resevoir. Front end is tweeked pretty bad, but managed to limp it a couple of miles to a gas station.

Ladies, and Gentlemen, ALWAYS wear protective gear! I was lucky enough to have on the ICON knee and shin protectors, which are now broken, good gloves and a thick leather jacket, which now are ground down and scratched, but I am fine.

Wow, that really sucks. I went for a little slide down a grassy hill on my face the other day, but my Honda made out with just twisted risers. At least the Scrams seem to be tough bastards. And congrats on not being beaten up too bad.

My crash ended with the same damage. I went with Renthal 615-01 bars they are similar to the stock bars but with more pull back. I like them more for road riding but I do not like them as much offroad. I am 5' 9".

How would the stock bars work for someone 5-11? I'm gonna get my Scrambler either this week, or next spring, depending on how impetuous I get, and I'm just gathering ever scrap of info on them that I can.
