Default Handlebar Question

Trying to identify some bars on a 2006 300.
Does a 2006 EC 300 come stock with 7/8 bars or would it have come with 1 1/8 bars stock? I believe they would be Hebo brand bars.

Thank you Dave.

Looking for info on finding out what the bend of the stock bars is. I'm looking to upgrade my bars and I like the bend of the 06 EC300 stock bars.

Do the stock bars match up, as far as bend is concerned, to any of the common aftermarket bars? Like maybe a CR low or high bend for example. Either Renthal or Protaper etc. I realize this may be an impossibility to find out but I figured I would ask in hopes someone will know.

Just upgrade to the hebo 1-1/8 bars. I just ordered the bar clamps and mounting bolts. I was able to use my stock triple clamp. It was the best money I ever spent on my bike.

The '06 bars look just like the late model KTM bars.

Thanks for the responses gents.

I'm just looking at my options. I thought if I could figure out what bend those stock Hebos are then I might be able to find that particular bend in the 7/8's bar. I would like to get the fat bars but I'm also trying to keep the cost to a minimum. Those stock bars are $150.00. Ouch. Then another $65.00 for the top clamp and about another $60.00 for the adapters to mount the bar.
Just weighing my options.

Like Eric said, late model GG Hebo fat bars are almost exactly like late model KTM SX bars. I have both and they are as close as you can get. If $$ is a concern look on ebay or the KTMtalk classifieds, many of those guys swap the OEM Renthal KTM SX bars for a taller bend. I'm sure someone here has GG OEM fat bar mounts they would sell as well.
