I have 16 inch apes on my bike. I had to change all the cables which I had custom made from Motion-Pro, and the electrical wires all had to be spliced. I used to have 12 inch apes on and was able to reroute all the OEM cables and wires other than the brake cable which I had to replace with a longer one...... Here is a link to a couple of pictures of my bike..

Please take some pictures of this mod and some of the challenges. Handlebars are probably most overlooked mod but I think my ride would be much more comfortable if my handlebars were higher and tilted a little further back. I'm looking forward to seeing your bike.
