Cables for 13RGC with 16" T-Bars

Just bought some 16" San Diego Bars from Lucky Dave's. Right now I have 10" mini apes due to not having to change any cables or wires. since the T-Bars are narrow can I use stock Cables and wires or will I have to change them out ? If so, How long do I have to go ? 4" over stock length? 6" ? 8" ?

I spoke to a local tech who also has a '13 and earlier RG with t-bars (as I may be looking at a set too). He says 14" is the max with re-routed stock cables and you'd need wiring extensions. With this in mind, 16" you could use +4 cables and re-route, or go +6 and use the stock routing. Wiring will need to be extended as well.

I don't have T-bars, but I do have 16" f47 picos. I think +4 will be plenty long enough.

Yep 4"+ should be exactly what you will need.

make sure to post up some pictures once you get those T-Bars installed Mhanks71.
