Hello Everyone,
 
After now having my K75 operational for about 6 months now, I am feeling like I would like the bars a little higher and swept back some as well so I can sit up a little more.
Is there any bars around that would do this? Also I expect that cables and switch block wiring would need to be lengthened.
Has anyone done this? or any suggestions please.

If it's a K75c then RT/LT bars will do the job. The bowden cables need to be longer as will the brake hydraulic line but not the electrical cables to the switch gear.
If it's a K75s then the c bars will raise you a bit and the bowden cables are the same.
I have some RT/LT bars and will swap for c bars.

I have the opposite problem, and am going to change my K75 from RT bars to C, or maybe even S (very similar if not identical to K100RS) bars.

. . .when I find the time among my too-many activities, none of which I want to give up. (I can be my own worst enemy sometimes.)

Since only a few know which model you are referring to, how's about going to the Profile above, click Signature and enter the year and model of your machine? It saves a lot of guessing but does stifle conversation as we sort out what motorbike you're asking about. With K75 alone we're talking about four possible handlebar configurations.

Hi Kim, I just noticed your location at Paxton (I assume it's the one in the Hunter Valley going by your username).

I'm just up the road at Pokolbin and have a K75 in the garage. If you ever want to chat K bikes over a koffee just send me a PM to arrange a meet up.

Cheers
