Handlebars for KLE500
« on: May 19, 2016, 03:45:09 pm »
Howzit?
What aftermarket handle bars fits the KLE500?
Only I could find after a search was Trailtech X-Bars.
Any others?
Who sells Trailtech handlebars?

And I'm still in the market for crashbars. No-one have stock, everyone is waiting for the supplier.

Thanks.

I put on some zeta converters and now run Renthal CR High Bend fat bars on mine.

You will likely have to try.

I think the Renthal CR High will fit (maybe you will have to use risers).
Alternatively Renthal Enduro.

It gets very tricky if you want to fit generic hand guards too.

Portaper handlebars works well, I have done it.

Do you know the model number of the bars you fitted? Did you have a to add risers?
Please post a picture if possible.

I measured and compared a few. The closest I could find was the "CR high" bars, but if I remember correctly I would have to fit risers to make up for them being too low.

Not sure about the code, the bike is at home now. I bought the handlebars at Trac Mac Paarden Island on Wednesday, the slip says PTH-X02-5222

It is the same as MX bars and did not have to use raisers. I just went on their web site now, it is called Fuzion, don't get those tapered bars, you will not be able to fit you switches.

No pics now but send me you cell number and I will send pics after work.
