Here is a picture of all three Easton EXP 1 3/8" bends I bought to try.

Top to bottom: Woods Hi/Freestyle, KTM/Suzuki, CR Hi



Too to bottom: Woods Hi/Freestyle, CR Hi, KTM/Suzuki



Front to back: Woods Hi/Freestyle, CR Hi, KTM/Suzuki






I liked the Woods HI/Freestyle bend the best. The KTM/Suzuki is a close second. Here is a picture of the Woods Hi/Freestyle bend with one hand guard personalized for proper fit.



Here is a picture of the 7/8" to 1 3/8" handle bar adapters for the CRF250L. I was surpised to see all the hardware and 2 sockets.




Ok, I'm done with handlebars.... What next????

Another noob

Hi all, I've been reading this thread for months, and bought a Lil Red to replace the KLR in October. Of course the weather turned bad the day after , but have put on about 400 miles so far. Skid plate, 13T CS sprocket, Rear rack, mirrors so far. Have bars and handguards on order, will need luggage of some sort for a planned OBDR this summer. Really enjoy the bike, and the info and stories here. Thanks to all!


hamonsax screwed with this post 01-09-2013 at 10:23 AM Reason: Picture upload problems

I ordered the woods package too and should get it today. Looks good. I like how you got the hand guard to place correct. What did you do to get it to rotate up?

I bent it as needed...


I have had to bend every handguard/barkbuster I have had to get the fit perfect.

OK, that makes sense. I guess every bar style is gonna be different so adjusting.... I'm seriously considering the Zeta handguards with turn signals. I already ordered the rear taillight turn signal combo. I am gonna make a small kydex piece to stick out a little farther under the license plate.

Hey MentalGuru, Did you ground down the tabs from the throttle and lights controls when you put the new bars on? Just wondering how that worked before getting new ones? Thanks....

Zeta makes front triple mount handguard mounts also. If you look at the bend of the hand guard you'll see some work easier on higher bars. My handguards only cost me $10.00 so I wasn't to picky.

Slick looking shifter, easy to install seems to be really nice quality.. havent dropped the bike to test durability but looks like it would fair very well.

Got one from BDSB also, but not the same exact one. I believe the one you have and the one shown on their site is made by Sunline. The shifter I got is made by Outlaw Racing. Basically the same except the Outaw one has a red tip.
