handlebar options for vstar650

I've been looking at getting some different bars for my 650. I have been looking at drag bars, but am not set on them 100%. I also like the mustache by bitwell and some other various low rise models.

I don't really want to buy new cables or have issues with gas tank clearance so I'm wondering if anyone has a list of bars that work with stock cables/grips and are basically bolt in and go.

You could always flip the stock bars upside down. I've seen it done, but cant find any pictures. It would be a VERY aggressive riding position, but do-able.

On a more realistic note, most all bars will bolt right on. stock cables have enough slack for 12" apes or 4" risers on stock bars. Ive heard that drag bars on stock risers will hit the tank.

on handlebar sizing, there are only 2 sizes- 7/8 (older import bikes) and 1 inch( all harleys and most modern import cruisers). You can find 1.25" and 1.5", but they are "necked down" to 1'" at the risers and grips.
