RE: Looking into getting some z bars. Need help.
i have jammer brand 10" bar. mines 28" wide and i didnt need new cables. but! if you want to keep the control boxes you'll need to lengthen the wires going to them

i...think... the dimpled for harley meant that where the bar touches the risers are knurled or dimpled. which is fine.

also thanks for joining the forum!

RE: Looking into getting some z bars. Need help.
well here are mine.... i had to reposition the brake line coming from the MC. the throttle cable has more than enough slack. but the clutch is kinda at its limit.

an 8" rise should fit fine. but a 10" will fit ok as long as its not super wide. mine is 28" wide

Yes they are..
I said mine but that's the bike I just sold..(in theory it is still in my garage until next Friday when the guy comes with the other half of the money)
All the lighting in the Dead Man's Hand is ghosted ....if you look at it in the rear shots here you will see that the rear turn signals are hidden behind the fender struts

My 10 inch tall and 28 inch wide z bar worked with the stock cables on my 09 1100 Custom

I had to lengthen the wiring to the control boxes and reposition the brake hose coming from the brake cylinder
