Yamaha FZ6NS2 (is it a 2009?)

Hi Twanger59 and welcome to the site:smileand good on yea 69 hope for us all:lol:

With i think your bike having standard type handle bars on it you should be able to move them 20-30mm back without suffering any problems,i would have thought even up to 50mm(could be worth doing this before fitting higher bar or something else?).All you would need to do is alter the clutch and brake alignment,the switch gear is fixed in place with pins,so if these became a issue and uncomfortable you could have the bars pin holes re-drilled to suit.Hope this helps and is a solution to this problem?.
