The 110 bend Phatfiddy is talking about is wider than stock, but about the same height. I run the xr50 bend bars on my bikes because I just feel like I have more control over the bike and they sit up a little higher so I don't hit my knees as much.



As far as stuff you should do to it, here is a list of stuff I had done to my stocker and that's all I needed:

-XR50 Bars

-BBR Pegmount

-Tall Seat

-Shifter with folding tip



Also it might benefit you to get a different front brake lever as the stock one doesn't give you good "leverage" when braking.

-XR50 Bars (if you get these you will need to get an extended brake cable, like $20)

-BBR Pegmount (pulls the pegs back a little so you have more room to brake and shift and it's more sturdy)

-Tall Seat

-Shifter with folding tip (after snagging your stock one in the corners a couple times you will see why)



Also it might benefit you to get a different front brake lever as the stock one doesn't give you good "leverage" when braking.



That might sound like a little bit of money, but in the long run it's so nice to have those on a stock one. Don't worry about a pipe if you're going to be running a stock motor because it won't make a huge difference. If you going to spend money on stuff like that I would go with an aftermarket cam to give it a little more pep.


my buddy had xr5o bars on his bike and the clamp didnt hold the bars good..



and i know anout money on these things.. i built a full mod 165 with big bike style swinger, inverted forks 28mm carb.. the whole deal.. well over 3000 invested thats why im going stock/mod this time..lol

Haha yeah I hear you. Once I get done with my full mod I'm done building mod bikes. I'll just stick with the little stockers.
