Bars and Barkbuster wr250f 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi guys just chasing some information. Rode Saturday y and flipped the bike out on a hill. Everything looked alright till we put the bike on the trailer.Bars looked bent, got it home washed it and measured the bars, 10mm out on the throttle side which took the hit on the hill. Question is can the bars be straightened or do I just buy new ones.Barkbuster also bent and should be able to straightened.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Replace the bars, Attempt to straighten bark busters.

Straightend bars are waiting to snap on you. Not worth the risk for the $100-$150 for a new set.

Replace them. You can straighten them if your desperate or on a tight budget but they will bend again more easily when you drop it. So annoying to ride with bent bars and it wastes a good ride and time can be very limited for some people.
Barkbusters a fine,bend them back. Second hand bars are usually fine also,you just need a bend that suits you.
