Since this is an off-road bike and we stand up a lot, we ordered the CR High version. The bar is 800mm wide, 10mm less than the Mid/Low options, and is 91mm tall with 63mm of sweep.

we snared a set of the MSR Dominator bars. These aluminum bars will fit into the stock bar mounts. The MSR Evolution Handguards and Clamps do not fit on the MSR Dominator handlebars.

There’s no point in splashing a lot of bling on a workhorse like this, so affordable parts that we can bash are right up our alley.
