Which Bars to buy?

I own a warrior and i would like to get a new set of bars. The old ones are ok but they are getting kind of rusty and one side is bent just a little from a crash. I see several ones in the rocky mt catalog that i like. I dont know if i should go with aluminum or steel bars. Im i correct when i say aluminum bars wont rust? If i get new bars can i still use the stock clamp? What would you guys recomend?

I just bought some O'Neal Aluminm ones for my 300ex due to budjet reason. But there great Bars and I am very Happy with them. Got them on sale for like 25 bucks from a local shop.

Re: Which Bars to buy?

I hate Pro tapers, my friend had a yz 125 with them. Ride a bike that has them put on before you buy them. They are meant to flex, but they had a dead feeling to me. Like crashing with stock bars and just bending them back into shape. I hate most atv bars too though, reminds me of a dorky bannana seat bycicle. The banshee bend renthals on my banshee are ok, but I'd try Renthal cr500 high bends, or kx 80 renthals also, if you like the narrow width better. I run the Mcgrath bend on my cr and my warrior because I like to stand up and ride crouched alot. Standing up and attacking=going fast in most situations.
