Handlebar position

I have a 2014 FJR 1300 that I love! I have put a helie bar riser extension on which brought the bars up son inch and back 2 inch's. But the problem I have is the bars are angled back to far toward the driver. I need to get them out straighter because my hand fall asleep because of my wrist angle. I have pushed them as far as adjustment goes. Dose anyone have NY good suggestions??

I have the helibars on my 2016 and initially set the bars in the most forward position, but I found a pull in my shoulders. So I now have them set to the most rearward position and find it more comfortable. I also use grip puppies.

Because of the nearly upright seating position, I also had to raise my rear brake lever.

Mine are pushed as far forward as they go. Helps tremendously.
