    I guess I’m an idiot when it comes to handlebars, but why is it so difficult for aftermarket people to make the exact same-size handlebars as OEM?
    There are a million options out there except bars that fit the machine as it is. I hear most have too short of a control length to fit all of the OEM components on there. Don’t need ape hangers, drag bars, or bars that require more parts to work.
    My son has a 2002 bone-stock Blaster and likes the bars as they were before they became bent. Does anyone know a set of bars that works with the original thumber, TORS, etc?

    My son had same issue with bars for his Banshee, not long enough in control area. Never priced them from Yamaha.

    I called them yesterday and was told “they aren’t the same as stock. You’ll just have to try them and return it if they don’t fit.” Not a game I’m willing to play at the moment.

    The link for the trailtech bars mentioned in other threads is dead and I can’t find anything on their website, so I guess they don’t make bars anymore.

    I just went to a shop and dropped $20 on a Fly Racing carbon steel ATV-bend handlebar. Things were a little snug, but it works fine. Thanks for the replies.
