I'm planning to install new handlebars and route the wire harness through the bars. What gauge wires should I buy to match the existing wires.

I have a V Star 650, but I'm guessing all models use the same gauge wire.

Did you find out what gauge the wiring is?
I need some as well as I got bigger bars

I'd match the wire size of the OE harness .. shouldn't be an issue carrying the load since your only going to extend it no more than 12" .

I would recommend soldering the connections for best results and less chance of a long term issue ..ie corrosion.
