Thanks Kaw'ee this is very helpful for those trying to spec new bars!

I would like to add the OEM sweep to this thread as I think that's the final missing piece of information in upgrading.

Just last week I realized that the bar on my bike is rotated back about 10° compared to my wife's Z. Makes a huge difference to my surprise.

I had ATV-MIDs on my last Z. I liked them. Going back and forth between them and stock (wrecked Z vs new bone stock Z), ATV-MIDs were a smidge lower and had a little less sweep to them. Felt much more hooligan and sporty especially since they were rotated forward a smidge. I would like to sit on a set of Pro Taper KLX bars since that is was most people recommend.

I have Pro Taper Contour Mini High's on mine, with the @mnnthbx adjustable triple clamp the ride position is much more roomy. No way I could go back to OE now.

I found Area 22 fat bars with adapters, bar end mirrors, adjustable levers, looks pretty good, have a good feel

In the process of switching bars. Picked up the ProTaper SE KLX110 bend.

Essentially the same height as stock but much less sweep so my elbows aren't collapsed into my ribs while riding. They are also significantly wider... like wider than the bars on my old man bike including bar ends. 0.o Not sure how much I'm going to trim them down yet, if at all. As crakerjac mentioned the super wide stance feels delightfully hooligan and it's not like filtering is legal here anyhow.

Extra wide bars with sliders in the ends might just save a lot of plastic.

Good point!

+5cm just from the bar before adding sliders may very well be the difference between replacing three sliders or two fairings. Though I suspect you would still hit the rear one.

I got the protaper seven eights bar for my Z and they look awesome. A more aggressive stance and much better for me. I would highly recommend them. Ive gone down once and the bike hits the rear sets (non-folding ones) and the bars which these didnt get damaged.

I left mine at full length and really like them. Less sweep tend to put more weight on the front wheel which seems to have a positive effect on handling. This is overall a great mod for this bike.
