Bars hitting tank or controls hitting tank

1999 Yamaha VStar Drag Star 1100
I see cool pictures of drag bars on the Drag Star.
Well I wanted a Tracker style. So I bought them.
And they hit the tank.
Hey no problem I’ll buy some Risers.
And Still hit the Tank. I had to flip the risers around to not hit the Tank,
Ok, now I’m done clowning around.
Went to a online store that sells parts for my model of bike.
Pretty expensive but hey, you can’t put a price on cool.
And, they hit the tank. Made a 1” spacer.
Controls hit the tank.
What I’m I missing here?
The stock bars don’t work. I’ve been riding dirt bikes and bmx bike for 40 years. This can’t be so complicated. Help a brother out!

It's the nature of the beast. Clip-on style bars won't work. Really needs a fairly tall set of risers to use drag bars.
