Want to add some Renthals

I have recently aquired 1000 K3 and would like to change the handlebars to a set of renthals. Does anyone know or reckonmend which ones to use and adjustments you have to make.

Cheers

I have Renthals off a LTZ400 fourwheeler ... The have more rise than any of the dirt bikes ... they are also a little wider ... I like the extra leverage ... I also like the cross bar to mount my GPS on ... It also eliminates the handlebar flex, which drove me crazy ... I recommend them ...

Like FW said, the ATV bends are closest to what comes with it, but lots of guys use high bend dirt bike bars with good results, just a little more hunched over riding position.

Thumbs up

Look at the posts for the Protaper bars. More height and much stronger than stock.
