You're going to run into problems other than just the cables. All handlebar wiring is going to be too short and the front brake line as well. You can usually come up about three inches at the most from standard risers to tall risers, 3 1/2" to 4" risers. One other thing that you must keep in mind when changing H-bars, not only the height but the width as well. If you're going to change H-bars, plan on lengthening all wiring and replacing cables and the brake hose.

Good Luck

I have a 2004 yamaha majesty 400 and my knees hit the handles when turning ? i would like to slide further back on the saddle but as you may but not possible. maybe someone out there has an idea

The only thing I could think of without hacking the seating area up is to, put some taller risers on your handle bars to raise them or buy a set of mini ape hangers. Mind you, if you go too Tall with the bars or real tall risers you may need to buy all new (Longer) cables for your controls. If it were me, I'd buy a bigger bike to fit my size and frame.

Handlebar Limitations For Super Glide

HD apes ( 9&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374309061627&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374309061627&bmUID=1117225755778&bmLocale=en_US) Those what you're looking for? You should be able to make pretty much any bar you want fit as long as you're willing to replace the cables and possibly the risers. According to the website they fit the FXD.
