Do the handle bars move up?

I think once you remove the bar covers you can adjust the handle bars higher. I'm a lanky guy and think higher might be nice. My question is can they be raised 4-6" and if so does it affect mirror vision or turning ability?
Thanks,
Hip

What, no one ever try this before??? I don't want 24" ape hangers. Just a lil higher grip is all.

The movement in the handlebars in only about 2 inches. To raise them, you must remove all the side tupperware, the stingray, the top handlebard covers and then the cover around the key. Full instructions here. I don't think you're going to get as much height gain as you want. JM2CW.

OBTW, another reason you can't raise them too high is the covers won't go back on.

All we can do is loosen the bars in the "dog-bone" and rotate them up or down a little so that your had naturally lays flat on the grip.
