Raising the handlebars, any suggestions?

I am having problems with the very low steering wheel om my F4 1000 from 2006. From Noel I got the following website:
http://www.cyclecat.com/index.php/bar-mounting-systems
but they do not have standard solutions for my bike

Anyone else nows another way for raising my handle bars?

Isn't the F4 the most beautiful bike you have ever seen?

Ok, so if I unscrew the inbus bolts which fixes my handle bars, I should be able to turn in 180 degrees? It might be good to test.

Noel, unfortunately Cycle Cat Bars told me that it only works if I replace my brakingfluidholders with Ducati ones otherwise it doesnt work.... But it would be great to see some photos from you Noel. Could you mail them or post them here?

Don't know if you want to go this route but take a look at Gilles "Vario Bars". I put them on the Greenie and they're the nuts. You can position them anywhere you want in all 3 axii. I had clearance problems and they solved it no sweat. Also terrific bling if you're into that. Big $$$ though, but then nothing's good enough for the bike, right? 'Sides beenie weenie ain't all that bad.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Don't do it! Sportbikes are supposed to have low bars.

Reminds of a 916 I keep seeing pop-up on Ebay.....it has bars like a chopper....looks ridiculous! Never gets any bids, I wonder why.

I got a set of clamps by FBF from CAG a year or two ago and love them.
I used some left over Ducati bars but other bars would work too.
These clamps raise the angle up slightly making it much more comfortable.
Check with Fast By Ferracci.

They ask 300 dollars for these... But you got the one from Ferracci or did you use old ducati ones?

I checked if I could turn around the standard handle bars, but I do not see how you should do it... Noel, you photos would be a help

@Lee: Where did you buy the Gilles "Vario Bars"? And how much clearance did you get? Can you post some pics?

And I really want to make this work. Have been in love with the F4 since 2000 and have it now for 1.5 years. Still love it to bits for its appearance, sound and factor that everybody is looking But I am getting a bit tired of getting pains in my neck and shoulders everytime I drive, and it is not my physical health. I already get it after 20 min. of driving. I used to have a Fireblade from 1997 and could do 1100km on a day without getting these pains.

Would be really great if I can find a suitable solution to get ride of this too agressive riding position for somebody of my posture (1.92 m high)
