Mark, you say about the same height. Are they taller or shorter? I would like to buy a set of bars that are about an inch taller instead of purchasing bar risers. I also agree with you that a bar with less sweep would be preferable for offroad use. I will eventually do the research myself before I buy but since you have already made a purchase...If the stock handlebars have too much sweep for you, Renthal "RC High" bars are a good alternative. They are about the same height but have less sweep. Anyone want to buy a spare "stock handlebar"?
