    I want to get some Pro Taper SE Series bars soon, mine are all kinds of bent and twisted. Previous owner must've rolled it, some of the fender brackets and stuff are either bent or broken as well. Regardless, I really like the feel of the original bars, they're like the perfect height for me, what type of Pro Tapers would be closest to the originals? ATV High, Mid, Low, CR High, KX Low, Henry Reed. I have no idea what any of those look like. Thanks for reading.

    these are brand new never driven
    pro-tap se HIGH BENDS
    which have the least amount of
    control area.
    all other controls are stock

    i still dont know the measurements on stock bars though lol

    Thanks for the replies guys. Well if those are the high bends, I think the mids should be perfect. My dads Blaster has the high bends and they're nice, just a little high for me.

    Do you know if the high bends allow the plastic that holds the oil light on an 03' Blaster to be reused? Or the mids?

    Maybe you could fab up a tank light? Just below the gas cap? In the outer shell. Just a matter of cutting holes and wiring lol. That could look pretty nice as well lol
