Can I raise my handlebars like one would raise a seat?

    I don't have much clearance with the gas tank there to turn the handlebars and just wondering if it's possible to raise the handlebars like the way the seat gets raised.

    Depends on if it has a threaded headset or threadless headset. A threaded stem can normally be raised. You can also buy a longer threaded stem.
    If your stem is threadless, you will need to get a different stem that raises the bars higher.
