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.
