Certainly, the 10" handlebar is too little difference to the original handlebar, which probably has about 9".
I guess you should go with the 12" handlebar.

Something to look into. Does anyone know what stock height is?

It is not just wires you need to run. Brake and clutch lines need to be changed. The risers should be changed out for heavy duty risers with apes. A new clamp with a second set of set screws should also be used to prevent rotation. This is a significant job.
With advice from here.....a few you-tube videos......one can certainly be more competent than most dealership hacks!

I didn't have to extend brake or clutch cables when I went to 12" bars... If you go more than 12" you will have to extend the cables..

I’ve had both Wild One 10” and 12.5”. Really good fit and finish and both were very comfortable. The 10” my hands were just below the fairing and on the 12.5” just above it. One note with the 10” I felt I could maneuver better at low speeds. In both cases I was on a HD CVO Heated Hammock Seat.

I agree, the diff between the stock and 10" is very little. I went for 12" Yaffe and could not be more happy with the set. I did it myself on older '14 Ultra Limited and it all went thru just fine except on one side i discovered i missed one wire and hell broke loose when i tried to pull the wires back up, etc.. when you have to worry about Heat Grips it adds an extra care (esp. when Yaffe design is not really curved like the Wild1 out there). Nevertheless, you can find very nice UTube video from a guy who did it on his SG - great video. If you need more info info you can PM me and do my best to help. My current CVO luckily already came with 14" and I almost cant tell the diff between this and the 12".
Hope this helps.

Have a look at KST Kustoms Bars. Put a set of 12" on my 18 CVO Limited and really like them & the price is good also... I'm 6'4 with 32" Inseam...

How do they interact with the stock mirrors?  I’m 6’1” with same inseam.  Looking at getting 10” bars but not sure.   Did you install yourself?

No problems with stock mirrors. Yes I installed bars myself. Removed wires from stock bars took to indy shop paid tech $75 to run wires internal. Only reason I have heated grips & didn't feel like messing with trying to run wires. Wasn't too bad doing the job. The Limited faring has to be removed completely thou...

the fairing did not have to come off completely, you only need to release, lift it and let it rest diagonally. make sure to pad the front fender well. here's a great link to follow instructions:

I'm removing the fairing for an amp and speaker upgrade.  Can't afford the dealer costs, but darn... you guys are making think to buy the bars and add this to the work effort. 
I'm thinking 12".
