    i had riva 32" in bars on my stxr which is the same as the 15F, i had a set of Pro-Taper suzuki bars that i was going to put on the 250x but sold them... i like wide bars it depends on your personal preference really.

    i have a set of 29" riva bars if you are interested

    I have Star Bar handlebars, and ODI Grips. THey are ~ 33" long. Just a tad long IMO. I'll try to get a photo at da races this weekend, and Post them up. THey look good though. The bulkhead is kinda ugly, It would look better powdercoated or something.

    anyone have the complete UMI steering system on their 15f if so is there any major difference compared to the stock because for the costs i am thinkin of just changing the handlebars

    The UMI system puts the pivot point farther forward, almost on a straight up and down axis. It puts it in a much better position for riding standing up, unlike the stock steering that positions the bars for a sitting position. It's a huge difference in my opinion. I'm running the "seadoo bars" from UMI that are wider and have less pullback than the umi stx-r bars.

    i found that to be the opposite on the STXr, i was more comfortable seated with the UMI than standing up. but personal preference i guess... but any point it helps in getting the nose down more to make it stick in turns instead of pushing

    I replaced my stockers with wider bars, they are ~ 3 inches wider, when going straight they are cool, but for CC racing, i was not comfortable. Maybe I'll go back to stockers, and see what the diff. is.
    When I was buying my new bars, I was at Macc. racing, he showed me his CC handlebars. DAMMM, they were hella small! Smaller than stock. He said when racing CC, he wants to be all tucked in close. I'm a little taller than most though. 6'3.
