K75C bars are the favourite mod. They're the same width and rake but a couple of inches taller. They don't alter the look too much and you can keep the original cables. You will need a 'C' brake master cylinder to headstock hose though.

The biggest problem is sourcing them as it's such a popular swap.

I'm not into switching out forks or rears from diff. year or diff. model bikes.I try to keep it simple so I don't have headaches down the road.
