DT400B (US import) - Handlebars was created by Jammyyammy

Hi all - I've come to replace the handlebars on my DT400B as the chrome is not too good and they are a bit bent. The centre of the bottom bar to the centre of the top bar is 4.5", so I assume that is the 'rise' is 4.5"?
New ones on Yambits have a 3.5" rise. I presume the 4.5" rise is original? Will fitting a 3.5" look ok? Are the Yambits ones any good? Any other bars (UK) better for the money? Thanks......

On my RT2 and DT360A, I found the indicator fitment was a bit tight on the Yambits ones. In the end I bought originals from the US and flogged the Yambits ones on fleabay.

If you're not going to fit indicators, then you're probably fine.

The FLY Aluma-Steel Vintage Handlebars are very close to stock. The hash marks where they mount are different than stock, but the dimensions are quite close. Best reasonably priced option I’ve found.

I have purchased ones i found on ebay and Yambits neither looked correct and have sold both sets. Try and get the originals repaired and re-chromed - thats what i did in the end and much more satisfiying.

that is a much better choice for a restore, though probably more than the $30 charge for the Fly bars.

Mako which part number did you use for the fly handlebars that are close to a 1976 DT400, I see they have a bunch that all appear to be close in measurements.

Hello Hatrick1960.
I have bought loads of stuff from Yambits and find some stuff is good but most doesn't fit or is " one use" quallity.
The handle bars look daft if they're to low. 
To explain,recently i looked at a really nice CT 3 that was supposed to be 100% standard and original but it looked odd and like something was missing. I noticed the chrome on the bars and then realised it had non standard lower bars on. 
I would do my best to find a good set of standard ones, even if they cost more . They just look tons better.
End of the day though it's your bike and your cash .

I don't have a specific part number, but they are the "alums-Steel 7/8" bars, in Chrome and Vintage Bend.
