It is made like that to help with arm pump.

If you think about it, the stems with the vertical rubber anti-vibe mounts don't really work with the rider. When do you push horizontally on handlebars? The RPM setup actually lets the rubber work in the direction of the force being applied.

The retail price is $229.95. Call RPM and ask for Jeremy if you're interested. Tell him you saw the pictures that I posted on YFZCentral.com. Their number is (928) 771-9363. If you have a blue YFZ, go for the blue-vein powder coat. It matches really well.

it looks odd....looks like my bent stock stem.....hows it work? do you like it?
I like it a lot. I wouldn't have anything else on any of my quads.

When I was running a vertical stem I would usually get a small amount of arm pump during practice. That doesn't happen anymore. Plus, it feels very sturdy throughout the entire race.

Just tell them you want a stem for the YFZ. All of their new YFZ stems will feature this design.

It's not actually one inch back. I know it looks that way in the pictures, and it actually looks that way in person. But if you look closely enough and at the right angle, you'll notice that the bars are still directly above the stem; just as they would be with a vertical mount system. The only difference is how the angle of this design allows the force to be applied in the correct direction.

I would definitely recommend a "+1" if you plan on running the dirt bike bend "fat bars". Some of the taller riders, like myself, will probably feel more comfortable with a +2.

Again, if you call RPM, please mention my name. I get a good pat on the back for letting you guys know about this stuff.

Crash,

Try http://www.team-rpm.com.

As for the colors, they will powdercoat almost any color. The chrome is on a "per part" basis. You will have to talk to Jeremy and see if they will do a chrome stem one for you. The acid used for chroming is harmful to the metal, and especially harmful to the welds. That's why they're a little hesitant to do it on some things.
