Check out these:
Baron Custom Accessories Radi'us Drag Bar, 1-1/4 inch - Yamaha Models

I have just fitted these and they are perfect, read some of the reviews.
Simple to fit and easy to wire internally, you have to extend the wires about 8" , easy if you know how but make sure you do a good job on the connections and extend at the headlight end! Brake lines and clutch cable fit well.
Also, you just need to drill out the left bar end slightly to accommodate the plastic caps.
Great service from cruiser customizing too

I am thinking about either
http://www.ebay.com/itm/150939819092?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1423.l2649
or
http://www.ebay.com/itm/221141226525?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1423.l2649


Will either (or both) of these work with all of the stock cabling??

The first one might be too long for stock. Mine are similar and I ended up switching everything out. The second are standard Yammi tt bars and would work but you cannot internally wire them. One comment- you say you want a different position but you want everything stock. That is going to leave you with just about stock- just with a different look. If you actually want a different position get the first- knowing you may have to replace cables. If you just want a different look get the second.

I think I'm just going to aim for a different look...I've had no comfort issues with the stock set up. Other than the paint, my Warrior is pretty much stock, I'm hoping to take this winter and make it even more mine...

What is the difference between the Yami TT bars and a set of drag bars?

Normally drag bars are flat bars with risers. Tt bars - any brand- are just drag bars with the risers built in. As I noted - yammi to bars aren't internally wired. So if you're looking to clean up your bars those wont do it completely...
