this is my second set of pro taper contours and I have to say that these handlebars can take a beating. I have had CR Mid's and they are just the right height on both of my bikes. I am 5'8" and they are very comfortable bars with a slight sweep back in the bar clamps. Overall, great product for the price!
If you own a DR650SE and want 1 1/8th bars, you'll notice the stock clamps have 10mm bolts, whereas most every other bike out there has 12mm bolts. So do these clamps. However, if you pull out the 12mm bolts and drop the bolts from the stock clamps in you'll notice they fit perfectly!
almost 2 years and my straps are still hanging in there, I will be buying a pair pretty soon again.
With other straps I own, I had many issues, bike h=getting loose or not holding the bike under the rain or wet conditions.
Protapers are the safest and by far the best.
The lever quality, price and shipping were outstanding. The problem I had is with the filter system of the web site. I entered the correct year, model and make and the site said it would fit my bike. After receiving it the lever packaging said it would only work with a Pro Taper lever perch. So in the end I had a lever that wouldn't fit my stock perch and a lot of hassle to return.
The Superstore was quick to try to help and I now see the lever clearly says it fits the ProTaper perch, not the stock.
My advice is to find a way to double check and not totally trust the web site's fit profile.
