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.

First, your capslock key is on.

Second - doesnt it make more sense to choose the most comforatble bars, and if that requires cables, buy them?

Personally I would not choose bars by whether I can keep the horribly ugly stock cables. No shortcuts, right?

But what the hell do I know?

I have Road 6 Customs Naked 13" bars and love them. Installed myself in about 30 minutes. Used original cables with no problems but the cables are just long enough.

thanks for the feed back ,

I'm going to decide between the Factory 47 signature bars 14 rise 1.5 thickness

or the FMB mercenary 14 inch 1.25 thickness

I like the thick bar look its in first place so far lol

I did the F47 Malos 14 inch and absolutely love them. The video was fairly spot on. I didn't have to unpin any of the connectors like they did in the video either. I don't believe anything taller (at least in the Malo bar) would fit without longer hoses and cable extensions.
