Default Handlebars, any of you change yours, to what?

I need some that are taller, I like the look of the ones on the Highball I think it is, the ape hangers, but I would need chrome ones, I am thinking about 10" apes of some type would get them about where I want them, any of you change yours, to what, pics would be great, and how tall can we go without cable changes? thanks

Last night I took the stock pullback style risers off and put a set of 4" tall straight risers on, they fit with no problem, and I still have plenty of slack in the cables, anyone know how tall a person can go, anyone change out their bars for something taller?

I have Fly Bars and I wish they were about an inch lower with 2 more inches of pull back

I put on a set of the victory 2" pull back bars on my 12 XR. I really like them. I ride quite comfortably

I think those would look OK on your bike, I want some similar but chrome on mine, but less pullback. And what fly bars do you have colecrazy?
I took some pics of mine, just havn't gotten them loaded yet. I looked at it last night, put some spacers under my risers and took measurements, looks like I have room for some 10 apes with just a short 2" riser with stock cables and stuff. I would really like to find some bars like the ones on the hardball, the black apes in a 10", but chrome. Thanks guys for the responses!! I will get some pics up soon I hope.

Well today I ordered a set of short risers, just tall enough to mount my bars with, and a set of 10" santee ape hangers off of ebay.

Well, my 10" apes showed up today, not what I am looking for, they don't match the look of the bike. I was looking at the ness ram bars, how are they? I need higher, not so much more pullback, I like the feel of the stock bars, they are just to low for me.

Colecrazy, how much taller and how much more pullback do those bars have then stock? Can you see the speedometer good with them on?
