Looking for tallest handlebars

Need help from you guys. I am looking to get the tallest handlebars I can get without having to change wires or cables. Want to use stock and want to do the work myself. Anyone have suggestions on what is available? I am about 6 foot and thinking that some 12s would work but not sure about a good quality brand to invest in. Any help appreciated.

If you have a newer bike 12's are the highest you can go without changing everything. I have the 12" wild one outlaws and love the. Santi, Paul yaffee monkey bars are all popular choices.

12" is the tallest. the problem is the tight brake hose cable. if you just changed that to 2-4 plus, you could probably do 14" with everything else.
