Tag T2 handle Bars were a staple on every bike I owned from 2003 until they disappeared from the shelves sometime around 2013 or 14, I actually could not tell you the exact year, but one minute they were there and the next minute they were gone.

Early this year a couple of posts surfaced from TAG Metals on Instagram and after a bit of a dig around we found out the John Titman Racing had taken up the role as the new Australian distributor and they were more than happy to get us reacquainted with a set of T2 bars.

Back in the day I always ran the CR High bend of Tag T2, but after looking through the spec sheet decided on a set with slightly lower overall height and slightly different sweep.

The bars themselves have been as robust as I remember them and though I try not to lay the bike in the dirt very often these days, they have managed to stay straight on the odd occasion things have gone pear-shaped over the past six months.
A little lower and more swept back than I would have usually ran, but I have come to really appreciate this bend of TAG T2 handle bar.
The bend I went for, the Factory KTM / Suzuki bend probably ended up sitting a little lower and swept back towards me a little more than I would have usually liked. But being the Yamaha YZ450F has the option of two bar mount positions, by simply moving the bar mounts to the forward position, closer to the front number plate, it gave me the little extra room I was looking for.

For 2019 I think we might go back to the CR (Honda) Hi bend and see how they compare to the bend we currently have.
