The Pro Taper bars look awesome. Did you have to get a specific size or something? Where did you order it from?

They're the same ones made for the KLX110, but I've heard that you can use the same bars made for the Honda 50's.
Just find a bend that fits you good.

Yeah they fit, its a standard size the honda of houston had 7 or 7.5 inch I think for the OD of the bars and id get the shortest ones (from left to right) just so when you're lane splitting or going in tight spots the bars wknt hit haha.

I bought a MSR brand for $28 and they've been crashed twice already and they held up really well they took impact at 40ish to the pavement and all I had to do was loosen the risers and realign them real quick. The other one I think was in the grass somewhere probably low speed (same thing just had to re align the risers)

Not sure what bend would be the US equivalent.
These are the bars I got:

http://tyga-performance.com/site/pro...oducts_id=2854

You can see the difference from stock here:
They're a bit wider and lower. It's a nice set up. If anything, I'd probably trim 1/2" off each side.
standard

according to HSBK, who has done dyno testing, this filter provides more power than the cones.

Its cheaper than the cone intake kit and they stock both, but was warned against it.

I'll get some pics up
