When I got my CBF it had the standard Honda bars and 25mm risers. The bars feeled far too high and too narrow.
I've since fitted Renthall Medium Road bars which are wider, lower and are angle better for my wrists. The bike is so much nicer to ride now and the extra leverage with the wide bars makes it more maneuverable.

Handle bars

I'm looking for a somewhat wider handlebar.

I found this at Touratech Norway but the item seems to have been canceled from the catalogue.

Aluminium handlebar conversion

I've found a recommended riser kit for use with a farbar. But I would like to know what are good dimensions to go for.

Probably need the existing bar width and diameter as a starting point for your search.

Thanks Robo.
I have seen the topic,but since it's a little bit old I was hoping for fresh review or any photos.
Renthal is what I am thinking but I should see it live at a store to check which one fits better,probably.

I have stock bars on mine.  They are buzzy enough to put my hands to sleep after a while on the highway.   Anybody find bar vibration a problem?  I was considering slightly heavier bar end weights to moderate the vibration a bit. 
The hand angle could be better for me too. I'll research Renthal bars option.
It's not what you ride, it's all about motorcycling.  Get out there and "giv'er!" :D
