Victory sells the Highball handlebar kit.. it comes with the wires needed. I would check with the Witchdoctor for cables if you didn't go the factory route.

As far as I know the 08 and newer models have a long enough wiring harness to do that but 07 and older you have to extend the wiring harness if you want to put ape hangers on the bike, at least that's what I have heard from a few different people

Come on over to my place in Beavercreek. We can extend those wires and do the install in my shop. I have done a few ape installs.

Are you being serious or just joking around because I have little experience with wiring and I want it to look professional

I am serious and do very professional work. Stop by and you can take a look at my bike. I put apes on my 06 KP a while ago and have done a few since then.

It will take some time to drill your bars, but it can be done.

I will pm you my contact info.

The bars have to be drilled?

Take a look at them. If they don't have a slotted hole in the bottom middle and don't have holes by the controls then yes, we will have to drill them if you want wires to run inside of them.

Bring the stuff over sometime or I can swing by your place. I just work a few miles south of you off of 68.
