OEM length brake/clutch lines with 10" ape bars

Hello JohnZ here. Been awhile since I last posted. Question: I'm contemplating putting 10" ape bars on my VTX1800N. Will the stock length brake & clutch lines fit on 10" ape bars or do they have to be replaced with longer lines? If this is the case, will the stock brake\clutch lines fit on 8" mini ape bars instead? Secondly, what size risers should I be lookin at? Thanks fer yer input!!!!

I don’t think you can use the stock brake lines and taller bars.

I put c risers on my r and it stretched stuff to the max. The whole kit is sealed - I think you will need a custom line kit.

They'll work as long as you don't go over a 2" riser
