    I see a lot of CR-high or low bend depending on the rider.

    I've seen an atv bend too. It looked kind of quirky, but the guy was 6'7" tall.

    I think a lot of people like the CR High Bend. I actually used the CR Low bend because they were out of the High Bend in silver and I'm impatient as hell. Might be too low for some though.

    I bought the Carmichae bend, its low rise with a deep sweep back- havent gotten a chance to ride with it yet- Just from sitting on the ski, the lower bars seem to put me in the more aggressive stance I was looking for- maybe its a little outa the norm- guess i gota ride it to find out--

    i also used the yamaha bar mounts so the bars sit lower than if i had used the adapters, I had to drill new holes- that plate is hard as hell!

    CR-Low bend on mine

    1-1/8" Azonic fat bars and Moose clamps. I grinded the hump off the bottom to keep the original clamp height.

    billy i like how you have the throttle cable going through the top of the steering rather than the rubber contraption below the steering deck. I never thought of that.
