For you at your height I guess the question is of you like to use handle bar riser or not Regarding the handle bar choice I agree with paolo6.

Just bought a set of fasst flexx bars, 12 degree enduro bend. I also have the pdhs handlebar mounts with the 5mm riser. Riding this weekend with the flexx bars for the first time and I'm 6'2" or 187cm (for you metric folks) and am right at 200 pounds with gear on.

Try ...and see how you fell ...are you novice/inter or pro?

1) What I normally do take a book and whrite everything how many click you have in the fork shock ..handlebar set up

2) whrite what kind of track you racing ...fast/ slow / tipe of corner etc...

3)start messing around and see how you fell

You will be fine ...but the answer is kind of magic
Myself ==> most people like ktm because of steel frame but I do actually prefer alluminium I love Honda ...now people on this forum are going to kill me

Stealing this thread for just a moment. I would like to get stock style bars on a 2011 but narrower. My problem is I can't cut My stock bars any shorter to much stuff on them. 2" or 50mm shorter would be great. Got any ideas. Thanks

there needs to be more dimension height,rise etc. (31 is inches)?

have a look at this website

Renthal Universal Off-Road Handlebar Size Chart - Motorcycle Superstore

Renthal - MX / Enduro - 7/8"

https://www.scribd.com/doc/47908296/handlebar

there is a few of them shorter then 81cm

if you cant find any (and want the exact other dimension) you have to think about cutting them ...if you have the same kind of handlebar of the picture before take off the protection bar and add the switches on (C)..i would personally avoid this one just too much mess around...
but also you need to think, if you want a new pair shorter it will cause the same issue of having too much stuff on them ?

hope it can be kind of helpful I am just not sure what I can suggest you
Thanks from Rainerio
