Default handlebars?

Hey everybody,
I am a newbie to this forum and to dirt riding. I recently bought an '08 KLX450 and went out a couple times. I love it. lots of power for sure.
My issue is that when I'm standing, I feel like the handlebars are too far back which doesn't give me much strength on the bars as I'm trying to maneuver the bike. I am 6'-2" and most of my height is in my upper body. Should I try just turning the bars forward? Not sure if that is enough. Are there bars I can get that might be better suited for my height? Does anyone else have this problem or is it something I just have to get used to?
any help would be appreciated.
thx
