I too have the same problem with bars. I like high bars but found it hard to get the rise I want without the sweep when using standard 22mm bars. I ended up using fatbar adaptors which also act as risers. The bars I chose were Renthal trials bend which are nice & wide with very little sweep. These are the widest straightest bars I have found & they work well for me. Renthal website has all the specs on. www.bandcexpress.co.uk stock them all & lucky for me are in the next village (thumbs)

hi andy,
I believe a few people prefer the pro taper evo adventure bars on the s10 :)

stock ktm exc bars are much better (got some to fit but not fitted as yet). the sweep on the 660 is way too much too. not sure why the jap bikes have so much sweep as you sit there with your wrists bent? i tried the new africa twin at the nec and that has a sweep back too. surely sitting there with straight wrists is far more comfortable? so why do the make them swept back?
