welcome to the forum.

I haven't needed to change my bars but this a 4" pivoting riser that will get the bars a little closer.. These are kind of pricey but you can look around for cheaper ones.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I've seen pictures of those pivoting risers but never tried them. They look like they might do the trick for you though.

I don't have experience with the 950 but one heads-up I will suggest is to make sure you have enough slack in the cables to allow for the rise/pullback of whatever you install. I bought some pullback risers for my Stratoliner (off-brand) and installing them would involve moving the brake line or getting a longer brake line. I'm not ready to go there yet but am still interested in getting my bars a bit closer to me.

Do research on installing risers, whichever brand you choose, on your specific bike.

BTW, if you want a set of Stratoliner risers, I know where you can get a deal on some! ;-)

Welcome from East Tennessee!
Wife and I each own a 950, we lowered the bars and it allowed them to pull back more to where it was comfortable, just a suggestion.
