Handlebars

I'm looking for some suggestions on handlebars. I want them to be higher and swept back more than the stock ones. I'm thinking a 3" higher and maybe 2" back. Anyone have some examples or suggestions?

Beyond my knowledge base, but I will say that you'll likely have to replace at least your clutch and brake cables... that's a pretty significant move.

Interested in this too, have you thought about trying a riser to just start off with?

Yeah I've thought about a riser but not sure which one to go with. There are a couple of different options on ebay. If I get some I'll post pics.

The only risers that will work are the Honda h2c ones for this bike

I threw on some Biltwell Zed bars. 5" rise and only 24" wide. Slight pull back. Great for splitting lanes. No need for extended cables. Although, i had to drill a small hole on each side for the throttle control and horn/light brackets. They have a small plastic/metal pin that requires to go into the bars to held in place.
