14's in general but that depends a lot on the width and pullback of the bars. Road 6 customs and Factory 47 have some excellent YouTube videos that show the process

I agree with the above. Alot of it has to do with the width & pullback. I have 12.5" Wild 1's Chubbys on mine, and the wiring was tight. It worked but I wasn't comfortable with it so I used the NAMZ 4" extensions. The width on mine are like 36" and like a 10" pullback.

I have 13" bars from Raod 6.

14" is probably possible but it would be tight. There are probably too many variables: brand, pullback, actual height vs advertised height, etc.

If I were to buy a new bike, the 13" road 6 customs would be on order.

+1 for Road 6 Customs

I got the 13" bars and put them on my 2016. I have no experience doing stuff like this and I was able to do it without any problems. The hardest part was running the wires but that wasn't even that bad. They made a big difference in comfort.

I got 12" Spookyfast bars on mine and was able to put 13" Road 6 Customs on two of my buddies' bikes with no issues. You will have to cut a few of the zip ties for the brake and clutch lines, but 14" is probably the tallest you'll be able to go.

I had 13" LA Choppers Twin Peaks and all the factors lines and cabling worked perfectly without have to change anything out.

Now that I have 16" apes, everything needed to be replace with new.

Good luck searching brother.

It will take some time to select the right setup for you.
