    I have the Riva runabout 29" bars. Motocross bars will do the same thing.

    I had Renthal 909 bars on mine. Nice and wide. I think Renthal has been bought out by FMF.

    pro taper SE bars all the way.
    31" bar allows the good fit of odi grips while retaining the stock trim. A bit wider than stock but more comfortable.

    I went with the Pro Taper SE ATV high bars. These are comfortable in the standing and sitting positions.
