Please report back on your findings. I am a road only rider also.Pro taper SE cr high or Renthal cr high in 7/8" are a good choice.
I have seen the ATV high bars recommended in many forums (strom, KLR, DR-Z) and I was using those on my KLR and DR-Z, but found I was having discomfort. Also, those bends caused me to keep my elbows down in the dirt. The CR bend bars are much closer to perpendicular. Looking at my other bikes, I would say they are slightly straighter than "splitting the difference" between the stock 'strom bar and perpendicular, if you follow. I may try a spare set of the ATV bars on my wee this weekend, as I only ride roads with it, but if that doesn't cut it, I will be putting CR bend bars on it as well.
The bar manufacturers give measurements on their websites so you can get a good idea before you order. The Pro Taper is available on amazon for $57.
I also converted to the MSR bars. I chose the ATV-Low bar and added a set of Rox risers to the mix. This was the pefect arrangement for me. The bars provided a much improved wrist angle, while the Rox risers allowed me to adjust the bars up and back to the what is for me, the ergonomic sweet spot.MSR low or high bend ATV bars. I have the lows, am long-armed, work way better than stock. Cheap, also. Try both.
Easy does it. Why are people so quick to slap someone's hand? The poster is just sharing his/her experience in a relatively recent thread on the matter. I see no foul in that.Search bar yielded:
