I have personally put the Victory brand 2" pullback bars on two of my 2012 XCT bikes WITHOUT lengthening any wires. I did this work myself following the instructions that come with the Victory +2" bars. You have to clip one of the cable ties that hold the wire bundles to the handlebars, you clip some wire ties inside the fairing, and you have to pull the wires as much as possible from inside the fairing but you do not have to actually lengthen any wires. The Victory instructions that come with these +2" bars don't require lengthening any wires. Here is a video of the procedure: http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=...it.ly%2FMbScW9

In addition, here is a thread on installing the +2" bars here on the Victory forums: https://www.victoryforums.com/34-vict...-part-1-a.html

Unfortunately, the pictures appear to no longer work. I believe that for 2010 and 2011 XCT bikes, you have to get a longer brake line but this is NOT the case for the 2012 XCT.

Default Install on a 2016

I had 2 inch pull backs installed on my 2016 and I didn't have to buy any other cables.

I put on the 2 " pull backs on my 14 XC and did not have to use new cables. Did cut one of the ties which holds cables together but everything work out great.
