Drilling my apes for wires

I got a good deal on a set of ape hangers but they are not set p for internal wires. Whats the deal, can I drill a small hole at the controls and a little larger one at the risers and every thing will be ok. Or will I have to run them outside the bar?

I have been told to take off the turn signals and loose the switches on the bars, but I want to keep them.

I just installed a set of 15" apes. The bar was dimple style, and had to machine the bar. Just make sure you file down the rough edges so your wires don't get cut and start grounding out on ya.

Also, when you extend your wires, sodder them.....using crimps will only cause problems in the long run.

hope this helps.....
