    You're welcome, it makes them just that bit more flexi on corrugations and potholes, also check the pivot bolts cos ours where way to tight not allowing any flexx.

    Note the Red bush is the hardest one, can't remember if blue or yellow is softer but I think the blue is.

    I was looking a this combination : My Rally Connex riser and Pro Taper Carmichael Contour.

    I think the height of bar and riser will be good for me (5' 10") and the Sweep (55mm) will be totally different then stock.

    950A was Renthal 792-01.
    775mm Wide, 120mm Rise, 105mm Sweep

    Hard to find, but been happy with it (on top of ~30mm risers) for over 50k miles.
    800mm Wide, 120mm Rise, 87mm Sweep
    Plenty of straight length for the controls.

    That front brake lever looks awkward. I imagine the clutch is same?

    Suggestions on what's closest to the stock bars, but higher? Already have risers, need higher bars as well.

    Really like it ! :thumb

    DirtJack...question on how is kaoko installed with hdb handguards. Did you cut right handlebar to fit the kaoko and are you using the threaded insert supplied by hdb handguards.
    I just installed hdb next gen handguards on my super enduro and ordered the kaoko for aftermarket handguards. I have not received the kaoko so concerns is correct installation.
    Thanks

    The plastic hand guards in the picture wouldn't keep the flex bars from flexing. With Cycras or the like, I use the BRP mounts which allow the guards to pivot independently of the bars . Works great....

    FWIW

    Works great.

    bikyto tnaks for reply. I receivwed the kaoko for barkbusters today and installed them with supplied hardware. i omotted right hdb threaded insert because only solution per my vision was to cut off kaoko aluminum spacer flush and cut off outside lip off the hdb threaded insert, then threading in the hdb into the bars to adjust to the recommended 1mm gap on each side
    thanks again

    I have Flexx Bars on my 450 with HDB guards, blinkers and mirrors.

    They will work.

    There is an issue with the movement of the bars vs the ridged position of the hand guard. HDB sent me some plastic washers and I fiddled around loosening the bolt torque to allow movement on the bar pivot.

    The mirror view took some fiddling around too but it all works.
