Has anyone tried these? Specifically anyone with a first gen wee/bee

How did they compare to stock? Like/dislike?

I have Pro tapers, but not those. Those look like they would fit better and have the proper bend.

You will need to get 1 1/8" mounts. Stock bars are 7/8". Maybe longer brake lines?

Those are on my short list, and yes you will need the adapters.

I have them on my 2014 Wee. Had to get different risers, already had a longer brake line. I moved all my wires, cables and hoses out of the forks. Also needed different ends for the Barkbusters because the bars are thicker. They are much better than stock for me.
