Handlebar change

2007 vtx1300. Can stock handle bars be swapped with 16” rise hangers without changing if cables? If someone knows or knows what the limit of rise is without changing cables that would be much appreciated. Thanks all!

Not a chance. 10 maybe 12 inches is your max

Stock cables don't believe you could go any more.

R/S cables are a few inches longer than C cables.

Electrical wiring probably will need splicing.
I have seen a few where the cable is leaving the switch and going at an angle to the headlight bucket.
Fugly looking to me. Internal wiring??
