Question Anyone have this setup?

I'm planning on putting 16" Apes on and doing internal wiring... Gonna go with black cabling still, but I know I'll need to go longer...

Anyone have this setup on the Nightster?

If so, what size cable did you have to go with? 4"-5" over?

How much length did you need to add to the wiring?

How much of a hole was needed for the bars?

i would like to know also i want to put 16s on my bike too.im guessing since i internally wired my 12 inch bars from road6 and added 6 inches of extra wiring i would add 10 to 11 inches for the interal wiring on the 16s to be safe. that should leave some excess so your bars turn with ease. on the cables i would go 8' over. i believe drag specialities has black cables that are extended. let me know how it goes because im going to be doing mine as soon as i get them in
