What size handlebars?
Since I ended up snapping my UMI bars this weekend on my 785, what size do I need or do you recommend? I'm guessing the bars are 7/8" OD?? What about width, rise, ect...?

How did you snap your UMI bars? They are pretty strong.

UMI bars are NOT very strong at all!!!
Go renthal from your local motocross shop. Very stout bars.

I recommend the bars that fit YOU. Measure your shoulders from side to side. Take off an inch or so, and you should be close to a neutral stance. Then, from there, everyone wants something different. Your height, stance, sitting or standing, and of course, what kind of ski will make your decision.

I'm considering a few of Renthal bars off ebay but I'm still a bit confused as to what size I should consider. I don't have anywhere near me that sells this sort of thing so I can't go out and see what there is.

Like Hydro said, it's personal preference and feel. I would say that most people like wider... I know I do. It sounds like you're looking for someone to suggest something very specific... so here goes.
I prefer the Pro-Taper SE CR High Bend.
They're 800mm's wide. (31.5 inches) That's why I love them. Keep in mind I have a wing span like a Quetzalcoatlus though. You're fit may be different.
