Need another 1/2 inch out of my throttle cable because of bar risers and was told I can just 180 the tube on the bar.

Will it work? Possible issues...?

It will work as long as the cables are not really twisted. I did it on mine and have not had a problem.

Does it need to be a complete 180?

Rotate it as far as you need. You could also roll it back toward you and run the cables on the back side of the bars, ala KTM. I just ordered longer cables.
