Question Higher bars

What are the highest handlebars that will fit with my stock risers, with all my stock hoses and wires, and cables. I have a nice set of 12" apes and would like to install them, if they would just fit.

I have a 04, 1300S and I put a set of 4" risers on my bike. Everything is stock - handle bars, cables, brake line, and with that, turning the bike all the way, (both right & left) puts no un-do strain on all off that. That 4" riser is all that I would be able to go with everything stock. After that I would have to change cables/hoses, etc.

I'm at 10" with double drop bars on my 03 , not sure there's much more room after that , I'm only 5'8 so my arms are straight out in front of me.

I will do a trial fit next week. I have a set of 3" turn back risers on now with a 1" spacer under them,and I have lots of room in the wires and brake line,and cables,so they just might fit. I will keep posted. Thanks for all the replies.
