When it came to sorting out the controls on our Honda CRF250L we were looking for two things: precision-quality and budget price point. The standard Honda equipment is pretty good, but we wanted enduro-spec kit, anticipating some extreme conditions in the long coast-to-coast ride and for the Long Distance Trial that followed.

The Pro Taper SE handlebars fitted the bill perfectly. Strong, light, well-made yet at a modest price point. We chose the 7/8” SEs (Seven-Eighths, get it?) in CR Mid bend and they were perfect for the Honda. As we were fitting them to a road bike we needed to drill a couple of holes, just as appear in the OE bars, for the tabs on the switchgear, but this wasn’t an issue – and we remembered to chamfer those holes so as to not make stress points.
