    Shoulder burn is often the result of having to reach too far for the bars. You probably need bars that come back further toward you so your arms and hands are in a more natural position. Try different bars that you don't have to reach for and your shoulder burn will probably disappear.

    Before changing bars, try to place it closer to you (backwards) and, probably, relocate the clutch and brake levers to avoid hand or wrist pain

    If u like the bars how about just changing the risers to a bit more pull back, and check all the controls for proper operation:s
