    Aftermarket Handlebars

    What bend on the handlebars would you guys say is the closest to the stock bars. I've heard its the CR LOW bend but not sure. Or in your opinion what is the most comfortable, i'm 5'10" 190lb. THANKS

    I am 5' 8" and like the CR-HIGH cover fits well if you can take an inch of both sides (depends on what you like for with).

    I have to play devil's advocate here and ask aside from the obvious where it may make it easier to "superman" on a different taper to aftermarket handlebars...what other reasons would you guys change them?

    I prefer the largely cushioned handlebars of my ski...and after hitting a 13 foot wave (not planned, just happened) at 70+ mph and going sky high, landing hard, smashing my chin into the handlebar and being thankful I didn't need reconstructive surgery due to my "stock" bars.

    Also the idea that my ski is a "sleeper" is out the door when someone sees motocross style handlebars!!

    I have never tried superman on a 13' wave at 70mph as for the cushy stock pad take a look underneath not much there. Besides the aftermarket bars are stronger then oem, I have bent those. I have aftermarket steering stem on mine too, I do not like the slop and pop of the oem. like anything though to each his own, I will stick with my fat bars

    every summer, the singer Billy Joel comes through the Cape Cod Canal which is basically my back yard...he has a 200+ foot long boat and an asshole for a captain. I was with a friend as "Mr. Joel" was idling his way through a channel with an 8mph limit (aka the canal)...I was out of the channel hitting his 4 to 5 foot waves and getting some serious height etc. Well I got more and more confident...sped up, rinse, repeated. I don't think the captain was too happy I was enjoying myself even though I was wayy behind the yacht...I hit a 13' wave at full throttle because I was watching a friend who nervously did 30 to jump...and I didn't see that he had floored it until it was too late...so I held the throttle and figured...wtf.

    There were several boats in the area, I also had soo much hang time that I thought about the mile or so ride into Wareham harbour which would get me to the hospital in no time. I was told by the boaters that I was above the top "cockpit" of the yacht height wise (minimum of 40+ feet in the air)

    I didn't fall off...ski landed kinda hard...hence the story of my chin being smoked on my handlebars. Despite the incredible pain I was in as I watched the knee I just twisted swell up to double its size...unable to speak from the pain.

    It was absolutely insane.
