what are the bend of the Trailtech X-bars, I like the bend of the stock bars, would like to stay close to it, but I love the way the Trailtech's looks, especially with the logo

Their web site has the bend specs for the x-bars. I am not sure what bend they are but I think it's the most standard bend on the market - Honda CR Low Bend. See my pix for good photos of the x-bar, computer and billet clamp. All good stuff I like it alot.

as long as their not too high.

SpaGuru: where did you get that bar/clamp/speedo set. I like the clamp with the logo on it, but it seems like I can find the clamp w/ logo and speedo, or just logo and bars, or just speedo and bars(with regular clamp) but I can't find a set of the bars, clamp, and speedo

Bought it straight from Trailtech. Be sure to tell them to give you the Z400 central Forum Discount! I apid $223.72 for the bars, clamp and speedo. I forgot to mention the forum discount though! My speedo sensor cable was defective and they priority mailed me a replacement ASAP. Great service. Thants the good thing about buying direct from manufacturer...

I believe they are CR-HIGH bend

I have the Trailtech "Dashboard" with x-bars and the computer on my z. The x-bars actually had CR HI stamped on the end where the grip covers. The box the x-bars came in had the follow specs:

Width 31.49"
Height 3.74"
Sweep 2.45"

I believe by looking at other manufacturers websites confirms those dimensions are CR HI bend specs (or very close - same height and sweep).

Also, I THINK the Trailtech clamp actually puts the mounting point of the bars higher than stock so to replace just the bars with a CR HI bend would put the actual height of the bars lower than stock, but about the same width and sweep.

In my opinion, the x-bar/billet clamp setup put the handlebars very close to stock position and they feel great to me - I feel no vibrations either.

Hope this helps,
Turbojay

ok, now that we got the hbar situation covered, what about grips, any certain grips supposed to be better than others?

Go with the Oury ATV grips - soft, tacky and long lasting. The best grip available. See my pix with them mounted on the x-bars...

Whatever bend the bars are, they're pretty darn close to the stock position once you get them on with the clamp. I put on the Renthal Full Diamond Medium grips and I love them. Just look around and get the ones that you'll think feel the best. It's all personal preference.
