When I first got my 650r it had clip ons. But then I crashed and broke them. So I put on the stock bar. And to me, well it was horrible, felt like I was riding on a beach cruiser bicycle with the handle bar up to my ears. Didn't like turning at all. So I installed the LSL Low Handlebar. And it is by far better comfort and handling wise compared to the clips on or the stock bar in my opinion. Granted I am only 5'6" so it may be different for other people.
Yeah- when I jumped on my first EX650 in 2009 I also felt like the bars were crazy tall.
Definitely took some getting used to!
On all subsequent models I've ditched the stock bars in favor of sport bars and clip ons.
