Handlebar internal wiring!

Hey everyone!

Looking at extending the internal cabling of my handlebars as I got 12" bars now.
For a 2005 Yamaha V star Classic

Wondering how many wires there are, how many on each side?
also what gauge wire? I've heard 18 will work.

If anyone can let me know how many wires in total and what gauge that would be great!

I did my '01, 1100 custom wires.

I think there were 11wires on the left and 6 on the right. I only had 4 colors to work with, so I used black, blue and red sharpie to draw stripes on the new wires to differentiate.
