Default Stock vs aftermarket handlebars.

I bent my stock handlebars yesterday on a ride. I searched the forum and couldn’t find any info. Wondering if anyone has put aftermarket bars on and what they like. Also wondering if the aftermarket bars are tougher than the stock ones.

Default Stock bars

Stick with stock $75 for bars ain't bad. If the aftermarket bars are stronger you bend other more expensive parts and really break your hand when it's pined between a tree. Just my thoughts on handle bars.

To me the shape of bars is just the position you get used to. There is probably a ideal height for your height, but price has nothing to do with the comfort. And the riser height.

You know. I try to start a discussion on something that is different than 850s blowing belts and just being piles of junk and I see the 850 crowd likes to just bag on them. Should have bought an arctic cat. If you look at thier forum there are almost no negative posts. I love my 850s but there is something wrong with the crowd.

Cats are 1000 % times better sleds only brand with no problems. My buddy has a cat with CFR bars & risers you should totally buy one. He says CFR bars & risers or he won't ride at all. He also chews big red gum only!

I went with CFR Boondocker 2.0 bars with a 5" riser. Love the setup, it's a little bit lower than stock. Although that's a good point about aftermarket bars being too strong and bending/breaking something else as stated above.
