hey guys, im about to buy my first bike and the cbr is looking good. i was wondering if the bars can be changed to a more upright style as im not a small guy and riding with the real low down bars is not a great feeling for me. thanks for any imput.

It's do-able, but not real cheap (if you do it right).

If you want a really flexible option in a solid bar, the DanMoto-3D's are the way to go.
Mind, you have to get creative and be mechanicaly apt, if you want bar-weights/ends.

At $120 bucks, they wont break the bank, you can find them at danmoto.com

After that, you can try to find some, that give you what you want, at the wrecker-yard.
This can be inexpensive, but it's a crap-shoot and a pain to find the set that will meet
your needs. Patience is definitly the order of the day.

Next step up is the APEX brand, they range $200+. Similar to the DanMoto's but, with a hollow bar.
Easier to customize, if you're going to roll that way. That's where I'm going,
because I also want to install a ThrottleMeister Bar-end cruise control.

There are a few retailors but here's the factory ebay store.
I haven't seen much of a break, with either retail or factory pricing....

handlebars, motorcycle parts items in clip-ons store on eBay!

There are other options out there, just google "motorcycle clip-on risers".
This is just the culling of my own research and common interest.

What model cbr? different models different sizes. For example... suzuki sv650 bars (41mm) fit f2's and f3's. And they have a little more rise compared to the stock. Also a little rise goes a long way. Unless you want an Ape Hanger type of rise.lol.
