I installed the Pro Taper ATV High bars last year. They are wider than the stock bar but they can be cut down to size with a hacksaw. I liked the open ends because I wanted to install handguards that are meant to be installed in open ended bars. I also didn't want to change the riding ergonomics and these bars are a similar bend to the stock bar. The bonus was the black color and removable cross bar. I didn't see any ATV mid size bars at the time I purchased these.

Got them installed last week. Those are a good alternative to original ones. I was hoping that it would improve the oem mirrors fuzz, but unfortunately no change here.

As you can see from the photos, I removed the stock mirrors and replaced them with the round convex bar end mirrors. There is absolutely zero vibration and I can always see who's behind or beside me. I finished off the look by putting two little chrome caps from Home Depot in the holes where the stock mirrors screw into. The mirrors are dirt cheap on eBay, something like $20. They are aluminum with real glass mirrors from China. Good quality and great price.

It's the Ermax shield from Frog Specialties in California. It's larger than the stock model, has black tint on the lower portion to hide the brackets and has a nice little scooped up top edge to help deflect more wind upward. I'm 5' 10" and it's perfect for what I wanted. I like to see over the shield but keep the wind off my chest.
