What are the tallest apes you can put on the custom while still using the stock cables, wiring, etc. I want some apes/mini-apes but I don't want to have to mess with re-wiring. Pics and links appreciated.

Is that 10" apes or 10" total(bars & risers)?

I did 12" apes on an '08 Classic lt with stock risers and rode for a little while that way. There was, however, significant tension on the clutch cable when turned lock to lock. I also had to creatively re-route all of the wiring and front brake line to make it work.
I would say 10" tops with no modifications. I have since replaced the the clutch and front brake lines to +6 so I can go higher if needed. If I do go higher I will internally wire the switches to extend them that way but the clutch and brake is good to go with up to 18" apes now. (But I won't ever go that high!)
