I was doing donuts yesterday and flipped so I bent my stock handlebars. I don't have the cash for any flexxs and have read that the tag x5 are good. I do alot of trail riding so any suggestion???

I'm going with Rox Risers Anti Vib and Pro Taper low bend so I can run the stock handlebar controls.

If you go with a 1 1/8 bar, you're going to need some sort of adapter. Most times the stock controls will fit (the bars are still 7/8" where the grips and controls mount) - you can run into trouble if you try to add a set of handguards since there is very little room left over. You can get some more room by adding a shorty shifter and removing the shifter on the bars. If you go higher, you can get some slack by rerouting the cables.

Do a search for "shorty shifter". KFXhellraiser and Camo both make them for sale, but they're not too tough to make yourself.

Don't you have to relocate the key with those bars

Pro Taper ATV HIGH bend with Houser clamp, I also removed shifter to clean up the clutter on the bars. Relocated the key and indicator panel. All reused factory controls fit on again with this setup with some rerouting. It improved comfort big time from the factory setup.
