Search Roxy Risers. Fairly easy to install, and you can move the handle bars back, up, down... or you can do what Brad did... and then sell your bike...>:)

Ha!! That was more a foot position problem than a hand position problem. Will you be ready to ride Sept/Oct????

I did this swap just the other day. I elected to go with a Honda NC700XD handlebar for my CTX700ND. Of course this required shims/spacers, as it is a 7/8” bar, but I liked the fact that it would accept the original weights and was pre-drilled with locating holes. This bar is a moderate change and looks and feels to me like it should have come with this bike. I lean forward just a bit, spreading some of my weight to my thighs. Bumps are less jarring. I have the feeling of more control, especially in the curves.
