Default Handle bars for trike

I completed converting my bike into a trike and find now that the handle bars are a bit too wide. It becomes a stretch to turn around street corners. Any suggestions?

2008 Yamaha V Star 1100 - Nice but not very comfortable for long rides
2004 Yamaha V Star 650 - Not a road bike but short rides only
OLD Honda 750 - Started me on my road to sin AGAIN but then it was free

Bars that bring your hands closer to you is one option as is having some bars specially made to your specs. I'm not sure there any extensions made that work like the old handlebar extensions for springer front forks but maybe you could make some.

These will give you an idea of what I'm talking about but I was thinking more along the line of a bar in place of the existing bar then some extensions to a set of handlebars.





Probably easier to just get a set of bars made or find some with the right pullback you need. You'll want them to be comfortable and wide enough for long term riding because you are only in those sharp turns for a few seconds at a time normally.
