Hi dragunovguy
Is +6" plus stock what you used for your 12" FMB?

dragunovguy They should work.

SantanaBeast Think that 4 in + stock length would work for cables?

dragunovguy The cables from Pacific Coast Star are good. I would get at least 6" over.

moneyg77 I put those bars and risers on mine at 3k miles, i'm now at over 9k with no issues and i ride the s*** out of it. Just check out my thread. But whatever anybody says, make that bike your own and make it safe.
Have a beer for me

SantanaBeast How's it ride with the new bars?
Are the pre drilled for the switches? I'm thinking about getting the same bars just in matte black. Where did you pick up your cables???
How difficult is the swap?
Sorry for all the questions

Longer cables

I have 12" FMB bars on 1.5" risers and I extended the wiring and bought longer throttle cables, clutch cable, and brake line. This is the way to do the job right. I have put taller bars on my Stryker and three Harleys. If you don't extend the wiring and the cables/lines you will end up with problems at some point in the not too distant future.
Extending the wiring and purchasing the longer cables/lines cost more money and takes more time, but is worth every cent and hour spent. The switch housing wiring should be run through the bars for the cleanest look, but that is only my opinion.
I have attached a few pictures of my Stryker to show how a clean job looks. Message me if you have any questions.
