Details

    The Contour bar is ProTaper's best-selling handlebar. Oversize diameter handlebars, without cross bars, were invented, and patented, by ProTaper. This design allows the bar to flex more and absorb impacts better than other bars. This offers the rider more comfort and less fatigue without sacrificing bar strength. The Contour is the most affordable way to get your hands on the most sought after bar design in the world. The Contour handlebar utilizes a computer profiled 5mm wall design and is up to 20% lighter than other bars yet up to 40% stronger.
  • Made from 5mm, proprietary, 2000 series T6 aluminum alloy for superior tensile and yield strength.
  • Most affordable balance between bar fatigue life, impact strength and impact absorbing flex.
  • High tech, stress relieved, shot peen and anodized finish for unmatched durability.
  • Left side knurling provides maximum grip traction.
  • Chemically applied cut lines and alignment grid are scratch and peel resistant.
  • End plugs help keep the elements out of the handlebar tubing and aid in longer grip life.
  • Comes with bar pad.
  • Weighs only 1.55 pounds (720 grams) w/o pad.

Atv high bend
Atv high bend gives some nice extra height to clear the knee. Good for taller riders.

atv med bend Awesome
really like these bars ! and love the color silvergray? cant remember what they called it. grip and control area of the bar is a little short barely able to fit grip thumb throttle and brake on had to remove the goofy plastic spacer an the brake still is just right on the edge of the bend radius which is why the 4star on fitment works but a 1/4" would have made all the difference! yes I would buy again!! 2005 Yamaha YFZ 450

So much better than stock!
This was my first set of aftermarket bars and wow are they sweet! I dropped my bike twice with these on (both were pretty hefty crashes) without issue. Pro tip: if you use these with the universal bar adapters, put the fat sides of the adapters on the inside so the bar pad will drop on without modification.

Good solid bars for the price
I'm on my second set of ProTaper Contour bars this year, I did crash and bend the first pair. I cannot fault the bars for that! I'm sure that the more expensive bars may be a little stronger but I have been happy with the Contours, using the Reed.Henry bend, cut of at #2. Good feel, no flex, controls all mount perfectly. I will continue to use these and would recommend them. I hope they do not discontinue them! Seem like when I find something I like, I can't get it a year later!

what are the size dimensions for the handle bars on my 2015 yz250f I am looking to get new and don't know what to get also tips on long lasting, or strong bars?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe they're a YZ high bend from Pro Taper, however, I am not 100% positive. There should be a number on your handlebars, like 027967. If you can find that number printed on the handlebar I might be able to cross reference it for you.
Are these bars good for outdoor track riding?
Carsten T on Jan 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Well I believe these bars are a high bend and also a touch narrower than factory. I ride them with a 30mm riser and I love them. I see no reason for them to not perform on a track whether indoor or outdoor. I race Enduro and it's everything to tight trees to wide open. These bars are also incredibly strong. I have had several wrecks at speed and no problems. I recommend them to anyone who rides regardless of riding style. Hope this helps.
Do these bars come with with pro taper pad as pictured or is that bought separately?
Jared S on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: yes it comes with a new pad and pad cover with every bar made by protaper, and i believe the EVO bars come with a newer 2.0 version bar pad. you can also buy pads and custom covers separately if you have money you want to waste
Will it fit my yz125 2012 I already had pro taper bars on it and they bent so will this fit?
Charles C on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you have over sized bar mounts then yes they will fit your yz 125. Must have 1 and 1/8 inch Handel bar mounts, these bar will not fit into oem mounts.
I recently bought these and heard that the center is 1 1/8 but the handle grip areas go down to a 7/8 , what size handguards fit these , do i choose 1/18 size or 7/8?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Just FYI, most all motorcycle bars' grips are 7/8" diameter. So, you can purchase almost any style of grip for them. RMATVMC carries a ton of grips, check em out! These are nice bars overall and Protaper even has their own line of grips for their products.
Going on a 2005 YFZ. Will I need longer throttle\clutch cables running this higher bar?
Matt J on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Contour raptor bend is the highest bar and you will still have plenty of cable.
will these fit an 08 ttr 125?
aidan s on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You'll need to change out your handle bar mounts to fit 1 1/8" bars, or you can buy adapters but you will also gain an extra inch rise if you go that route.
Do lock on grips work on these bars?
Bailey A on Sep 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Some do not because of the knurling. I would check the brand of grips you. But I have also been able to carefully force some on though.
Do the end plugs come out of the bars so you can mount the bark busters into them?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bar ends have plastic plugs that you can pry out. I run bark busters with mine.
Does this bar come with bar pad?
Seth S on Nov 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine did.
Will these fit my 2007 KX 250?
Vincent C on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, As long as you have 1 1/8" clamps or universal clamps. However I think the kx's come with 7/8" bars and clamps. look for the Y shaped bars if that's the case rather than the flat type.
Will these bars fit on my 2007 TRX 400EX?
Carson J on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They will fit only if you get the big bar clamp kit or assembly and you may not be able to use the stock bar plastic cover. I got the trail tech assembly for my 06 450er with these. Works great but use loc tight, Honda lock or similar with aftermarket kits
Will 1.25 pro taper bars be good with adv stuff like gps ram mounts etc,?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: depends where you plan on adding the accessories. This bars have to taper from 1:1/8in to 7/8in so it's doubtful that you could utilize that area to mount accessories. I would stick to 7/8in bars for your needs.
I have an 06 yz250f, I bought it with Renthal twin wall bars. so my hand controls mount to a 7/8" bar correct? my handguards are for a 1-1/8" so after the twin wall starts its at 1-1/8" do I need to upgrade my perches etc to mount the brake and clutch and a new throttle tube?
Matthew C on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You do not need to change the perches for your hand controls. The bars are 1 1/8 in the center when they mount to your bike, so those mounts should be 1 1/8. The bars slim down to being 7/8 for your hand controls though, so they take stand clutch, brake, and throttle tubes.
I race mainly enduro, So desert racing and also single trail. I also do a little bit of moto with my buddies. Which bar would you recommend ? I'm 5'11
Dominick J on Oct 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Well me personally with years of going through different types of bends and styles I personally like a bar that sits low due to the fact of being on top of the bars a little bit to help keep my elbows up and having better control of the bike, it’s really not about the type of stuff you ride it’s about how you ride it and how you feel. You don’t wanna be to comfortable and you don’t wanna be too uncomfortable. The lower the bend the more it’s gonna make you wanna stand and be more focused but also can be more uncomfortable. If you get to high of a bend bar it will make you sit a lot more and not be focused and you can mess up a lot it’s basically all about how you feel everyone has there likes. But this is just a little bit of what to look out for me personally I run the Carmichael bend and I’m 5,10 and love it but sits low. So the choice is yours and I hope this helps!
Will this fit a 2002 Honda trx300ex??
Andy P on Mar 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes these bars will fit your quad great in an ATV bend. You may need to buy 7/8 to 1 1/8 bar adapters depending on what size bars you have on your bike currently.
I see it says you can't run lock on grips but aren't all bars the same diameter on the ends?
Ben V on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have odi lock on grips on mine. They work fine.
2018 250sx I would like the highest bend for it. What bend would that be? And if I cut 1/8 inch on each side would the lock on grips work?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Protaper has a chart on their website comparing the measurement of the different bends. The highest would be the Pastrana FMX bend, but it is VERY high. I love the CR high bend. You have to be very carful cutting these bars down, as the diameter increase toward the center and some controls/grips may not fit if you cut too much off.
what bend for 2005 kx125?
Brandon S on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Bend choice is a personal preference.
Which bend is recommended for a taller rider that likes both desert and motocross riding?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is a "high" bar that would probably work well. An even better option to me would be to figure out which bend you like regardless of height and then add handlebar risers - best of both worlds. I love the RM mid bend, it's perfect for woods and I suspect it would fare just fine on the track.

SW-MOTECH Handlebar Riser
which size would have the same rise and height as my oem 2004 honda trx450r handlebars?
flavio m on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure - go to the ProTaper and Renthal websites - they have schematics that show measurement - you have height/widt/sweep/countour(i I think that's what it's called - it's the angle of the bend). But there you can see how they measure - you can measure yours (allowing for assumed bend in your bars if broken) and match up. Unless you want really high bars or really low bars, most of them are going to be in the middle. -u will see on the schematic.
Which would be a direct replacement for a 2015 drz400sm?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not really sure because I bought mine for a 2015 YFZ450R. You would need to find out if you have 7/8 inch bar clamps or 1 1/8 clamps. From there you just figure out how high of a bend you would like. I recommend going on Pro Tapers website to figure out what the bar dimensions are.
Will these bars mount on a 2010 Yamaha YZ250F ?
brandon s on Jan 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Your bike came with7/8 inch bars. You will need a big bar adapapter clamp set. Get the pro taper kit to match.
Anybody using these on a dr650 Windham MX/RM Mid Bend ? Any problems with cables from rise in height ?
James C on Jan 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I run these bars on my Rmz450 with 15 mm risers on my ktm 350 with 30mm risers and on my husqvarna fc250 with no risers and the cables still function correctly.
If I buy the pastrana fmx bend will I need to alter / purchase anything for them to fit on my standard 04 250 exc?
Ryan W on Oct 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No should not have to buy any other item to fit them on your bike. KTM's on 04 use 1 1/8 handlebar, that's the same size as the one you are looking to buy.
Now remember Pastrana FMX bend is a tall bend, way higher than the stock one.
Will this fit a Honda 2014 CRF125F?
Mark D on Sep 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The factory handlebar is 7/8. The factory clamp is not designed for 1 1/8 bars. There are some aftermarket bar clamp to address the size issue.
Will this size bar fit a 2017 ktm 250 sxf?
John M on Jul 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: as long as you have the fat bar mounts on the triple trees they will fit, if not you need to buy adapters
Hello I am 6’3” and like a higher and straighter bar. Any suggestions for the bar bend I should use?
John M on Jul 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’m 6’2” and love the CR high bend. Fits better then any other pro taper bar I’ve used
Will these handlebars fit a APOLLO Dirt Bike 250cc AGB-36 ??
Charles M on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You will need to measure the mount size of the existing bars on the Apollo. For the common MX bikes there are the 1 1/8" bars and 7/8" bar mount sizes. The ProTaper Contour bars are excellent if you can use the 1 1/8" bars.
Will these bars fit a
2018 KX250f with the universal rubber mounts kit?
Alan K on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will as long as you have the fat bar mount kit.
