Default Handlebar cable and wiring slack?

Anybody know if the 2011 Iron has enough wiring slack to put some 8" handlebars on without having to extend the cables? Wondering if I can just re do the wires in a way where they have enough slack to get up to the 8" bars? Thank you

I have a 06 883 that i put the Nightster Bars and cables on (think they are the same as the iron) then extended the wiring harness. This morning i actually put biltwell chumps 8" bars on. Cables were all fine my harness was good but i wired the extensions in myself so you may have to extend it a bit. The Brake line had to be changed. I spoke with many people that said you could just bend the original line but to me it looked like crap. I got a 42" braided line and am good to go. the lift in total cost me 170 bucks with the fluid to install the new line.
