Handlebar Help

Im looking for handle bar suggestions. I have a 2009 Classic. I am fine with the reach and everything just hate the width of the stock bars. Not sure what Im looking for just not something so wide Im not exactly a big person. Thanks for any help

I don't know if this will help but maybe you haven't seen it. This site lists stock bar measurements for all kinds of different bikes so you can start comparing.

I would start checking out all the various websites. i searched for 4 months before i found a set thst i liked. i went with a set of biltwell inc's tracker bars. They have a more narrow width. they're kinda like moto bars. they are a bit of a stretch but thats what i was look and feel i was looking for. difintely give my 12' 900 classic a more sportier feel. My next mod is to lower the rear end at least 2". i would post pics but i cant figure out how to get them on here from my cell phone.
