If you're looking to change your hand position, you could search for  bar risers - lots of posts about those.

I've been thinking about this as well - not forbar height but to the improve wrist angle which I do find a little less comfortable than I would like.  My CB500 has much narrower bars but the angle seems somehow better.  Wouldn't want CBF bars narrow but change of angle would be good. Guess its a suck it & see job - could be expensive experiment?

At some stage I would like to raise the bars on my bike as I find them a bit low after my NC700X and the Crossrunner that I traded for the CBF. I cant decide which would be the best idea risers or a set of Renthnal bars

I have the Mk1 and I have fitted these http://www.motohaus.com/acatalog/Handlebar_Risers_20_mm.html

once fitted no alterations required and I could tilt back the bars a little but must watch how far you go could catch the tank.

I'm 5'9" and this let me sit more upright.

Thanks although mine is a Mk2 I'm sure this might work as I'm the same height as you

Be a bit cautious and carefully check how much the front brake hose will reach before you buy any bar risers.in case you end up having to fit alonger one with all the hassle of bleeding etc.On mine I justmanaged 18mm ,possibly others have a bit more to play with.

Thanks for the warning. According to other posts on here I should be OK up to 25mm

i have 22mm of bar risers fitted, all it needs is a little bracket making too carry the brake hose where its bolted too the lower steering head yolk,it just allows the hose more freedom too move.
