Usually there is a hex bolt or some kind of bolt in the handlebar stem.
Loosen the bolt 4-5-6 turns.
Bolt will move upward.
Then hit bolt down with wrench.
Handlebars should be loose.
Raise handlebars to position.
Hold bolt upward with fingers while tightening.

As a rule the Allen screw center front of you on the back of the bars must be loosened several turns you may have to bang it down with a rubber mallet as to non hurt the finish.That will loosen them raise to height and re tighten.

Most bikes use an allen key to adjust the height of the handle bars. Typically 6mm. But be careful most bikes do not have much adjustment that can be done to the height of the handle bars. The handle bar stem will have a line on it of the "minimum insertion". That line must be below the top of the head set nut for safety reasons. Look for the line as you adjust the height.

back off the nuts and washers up on the wheel axel. Place the wheel between the forks positioning the axel in the slots. Replace the washers and nuts and tighten with a wrench

SOURCE: I have a Sirrus bicycle
There are a number of ways to raise the handlebar, depends on how old your Sirrus is.
The most common is too replace the stem with one that has a higher rise to it. Take your bike into your local bike shop and have them take a look at your set-up and they can offer specific options depending on how high you want to raise the bars.
NOTE: Depending how high you raise your handlebars you may need to replace your cables and housing to your controls. Also you may have handling issues if you raise the bars too high. If you are raising your bars because your uncomfortable or having pains in the neck or back you should consider getting a bike fitting to make sure you are properly mated to your bicycle.
