Looking for a little more handlebar height, I ordered the Renthal Fatbar after researching dimensions. Wanted a Rizoma bar to work as it did for my former Z1K. Here's the bar:

Renthal Fatbar Street Handlebars 1-1/8" | 10% ($8.99) Off! - RevZilla

This bar is about 1 7/16 inch higher than the OEM bar. By the way, the OEM is a really a good bar with respect to bends. The Renthal is just under an inch longer at the ends and has a bit more sweep. For a side note, the OEM vibration absorber weights in the OEM bar do not fit the Fatbar. Although they could if the bar ends were drilled-out.

Installation of this bar is absolute. That is the upper curve is wider overall and requires every bit of excess clutch cable and brake hose length for the clutch and brake components to mount and seat properly out of the bend. By doing so, their is about 1/2 inch excess bar length to cut off. To free up some brake hose length, there is a clamp inside of the right fork tube that I removed. I drilled a shallow hole to accommodate the throttle locating pin that is stamped into the throttle clamp bracket inside the switch housing. There is one for the left switch housing too.

Some pictures.

Thanks for the post, this is something I've been contemplating doing as well. I have the factory heated grips on my CB1000R though and I'm not sure how easy/hard these are to remove and refit though?

There's also a how to that AndyManCam put together on fitting LSL bars to his CB1000R
