Same angle as the original bars? I could do with a slightly longer reach to mine.

Tbh I couldn't say. They came on the bike.

If you want to meet up sometime and take a look at mine you're welcome to. Drop me a PM for my number. I'm near Exeter

Wider and a bit less sweep.
These are almost the same with CR-High rentals (605-01)

Default bars:
The lengh is : 764 mm
Hight : 78 mm
Sweep : 75 mm

Cheers.
If you're on any of the Southwestbikers runs we're sure to meet up. I'll be posting a run of my own soon, probably in May.
If the weather is good I might go to the Hartland Quay hill climb on Sunday but it'll be on the 1290. The SMT is due a service and its got a rear puncture. The rear tyres is almost out anyway though annoyingly it would have made it to Hartland. I'll be ordering some tyres next week and getting it booked in for a service.

If you do, come and say hello. I'll be running a YZ (#204) in the 250 class and a CRF (#567) in the 500 class. Or the numbers might be the other way round, I can't remember. Forecast looks pretty decent, anyway.

Cool. I will do. I'll make a note of your numbers. All depends on the weather my end.

I now have quite a lot of sunburn. And a few championship points. Which is nice.

Good on you. Saw you go up the hill on the TZ but didn't manage to catch you off the bike in the paddock/pub car park.

I like hill climbs. Good sounds, goods smells and no tyre warmers in sight.
I was itching to have a go myself.

It's a good laugh, but appalling value considering how much time you actually get on the hill. I was borrowing two of a mate's bikes, as he had a double entry and could only ride one of them at a time.

He wasn't overly impressed when I beat him on his own bike.
