switching out handlebars

Hello, I have a question about he Biltwell Keystone handlebars I would like to put on my bike. The cables specifically, will I need to buy new ones or will I be able to use the same ones?

Sorry if this is a question that's been answered before.

Thanks

These are the ones i want, thanks emtdon. I didn't know if I'd need to just route the cables differently to hide the slack or not. But after doing a bit more looking, i wouldn't need new, longer ones.

Now back to waiting and working.
