    09 KLR650 Adventure
    Normally a Renthal guy. I couldn’t pass up a opportunity to swap the stockers for a bar specifically designed for adventure bikes. I’m disappointed ProTaper DID NOT include a bar pad. Also would be nice to have marks or a template for control button locations. Otherwise happy.

    Good Bars
    I've used pro tapers on all my bikes and I have never had a problem with them. This time these were installed on my 2017 KLR 650. they are an amazing upgrade over the stock bars. And i love the fat bars they make the bike look a lot better too. As for the height they are decent size rise on the normal adventure bend, plus with the added 3/4" adapter to go from standard size to the 1 1/8" bars. I could have liked a bit more height on the bars for when i stand up on the bike, however i didnt want to get into extending all the cables to make a higher bar work so it was a mild compromise. Bottom line they are a strong set of bars, that look great and add a better shape and appearance over the stock. KLR owners be aware on the light/horn switch and starter/ kill switch housings there are anchor pegs inside of them that sit into holes drilled into the stock bars. your choices are to either drill holes in your new bars (which will take careful measurements and lining up before drilling) or you can cut off the anchor pegs inside the housings like i did. Once tightened down i found the housings will move if twisted by hand, however once everything else is installed on the bars the housings are kept in place. by aggressive riding and normal use i dont have any issues with these housings moving around for me, other than when i twist them by hand or push the choke down to hard. I suppose if you wanted to wrap the bar in a couple rounds of electrical tape underneath the housings to allow them to bite in a bit i would guess this to eliminate the problem however it hasn't been that much of an issue for me to do that yet.

    EVO Adventure Bars
    Great set of bars fitment was easy on a Suzuki DL1000A 2014 bike with adaptors and a little modification of original bar end weights.

    Way better than anticipated
    ProTaper sure hit the mark on these bars. I searched all the bar angles and height for my BMW R1100gs only to discover
    Protaper already did the leg work, the Evo adventure bar. I chose the std height and used the 2" Rox riser and that way I have all kinds od adjustment and angles to set these bars at. The quality is superb and i really do not understand the concept but it eliminated the bit of vibration i had. I still can't believe how smooth my bike is also how much better it steers!

    How much higher are they then the stocks on a ya?
    A shopper on May 6, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Not sure what your stock measurements are but if you look at handlebar info below product details it will give you dimensions and how to measure yours
    how much higher are they ? is it two inch riser or? will they work on a 2014 klr 650
    A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I got the low ADV bar with the Tusk big bar clamp kit and the height was about the same as stock on my 08 KLR 650.
    Being 6' 2 I returned them for the tall ADV bar and love them!
    Cables are a little snug but ok. May get the Motion Pro longer cables some day.
    Will the stock cables have to be changed out for the High bend bars to work ? Being put on a 07 DR 650
    A shopper on Jan 4, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the high bend will require new cables. I opted for the evo adventure and didn't need to change cables
    I'm 6' 1" and with the lowered pegs, high seat and evo bars the cockpit is perfect for me.
    Will the adventure bend work on my 950 adventure with the stock cables?
    Ian L on Mar 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I ride a BMW R 1100GS. The ProTaper EVO Adventure 1 1/8" Handlebars worked great as a replacement for the OEM set-up. I checked out your KTM on YouTube and it looks like you shouldn't have a problem. As for the bend, just roll the bars until your happy with the position.
    Could you mount this on a 2015 Yamaha TTR230 if it is used primarily for trail-riding?

    Thanks in advance.
    Jordan L on Mar 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Handlebars are tricky because there are so many options. The biggest factor is if your bike requires 7/8" or 1" bars. Then there is bend and sweep, as well as if there is enough room for switches etc...
