Ape Hanger decision!

I've got a '12 950. Not a fan of the stock bars, I'm looking to swap em out with ape hangers. I can't decide between 12s and 14s. I hear a lot of people saying they wished they went 14 after they got 12s, but I also am not looking for anything too far past my shoulders. For reference I'm 5'8, but have a bit of a longer torso.

If anyone has experience with ape hangers on a 950, or has pictures, that'd be greatly appreciated!

And buying new cables is a given so I'm not worried about keeping my old ones, that's not a factor.

FTW

I know this is an old thread, but Nick57, what cables did you have to replace and what sizes did you use? I'm thinking of doing the exact same.

are you asking for a 950 or a 1100.mine is the 1100. 6" over clutch,2" over throttle cause it hangs down did not get the push cable.4" over may work for the clutch but the 6 works fine and looks right,... the brake i changed top and bottom so i dont know the size.i moved the choke cable down next to the tank. i bought one for a 650 off pinwall.
