The only suggestion I have if you want 12"ers is to go cheap....because you'll end up wanting taller ones.

Other than that...there are of choices. Check out SS Custom Cycle...great people to deal with.

well i went with 12 up and 10 back got the from sscustom $100.00. but i'm 5' 6". clutch cable is 6" over and throttle is 2" over i forget the brake and i relocated the choke cable. and dont use a push cable. stock is 7 up and 12 back and the bars are in a straight line with the tubes so i may lean forward a little but i think my back is straight.

Like Nick says....it can be close on the cables/hose.....watch out for the wider spread bars....you may need a cable or 2.

I was able to run 11"ers with all stock cables after a little re-routing. Depending on how you angle the bars will also make a difference in cable length. The more straight up the better for shorter cables.

Have fun! I'm sure you'll find like I did that they are super comfortable. So much so, I went to 16" and will never go back.
