I have 10" OEM's on my bike and my hands are just below my shoulders. I put mine on in July '11, and within a couple days, did a 1500 mile round trip. I took a gamble, but it paid off. No back or shoulder aches or pains, whatsoever.
The newer bikes have longer wiring harnesses that the older models, but even then, I didn't have to extend the harnesses to put them on my '04 (but I promise you there wasn't ANY extra wire left.) I did reroute my stock clutch cable to outside the nacelle, but the throttle cables had plenty of length. Also, I was able to use the stock brake line, though it isn't the prettiest of routing. On your '12, you should be fine with stock harnesses, cables and brake line.
