Handlebar risers

Having upper back trouble with my 2009 K1200LT. Are there any risers or adjustments to the bars anyone could recommend.

Re: Handlebar risers

I have seen this asked before. There is no realistic way to move the bars. That said, what I did was have a custom seat made that moved me forward about 1 1/2 inches and I added and back rest. These two things made all the difference in the world. Next I added Mick-O-Pegs and now I'm a happy camper!
