Lower handlebars

Has anyone installed a lower 7/8" handlebar on their 750 ? If so, do you need to change the cables to do so ? Any pics would be great.

Thanks
Nick

I installed (and subsequently removed!) some low rise bars. The cables were too long and the clutch didn't operate as good as it did. As I said, I removed them and went back to the stock bars. Now if you could get some beach bars in 7/8 which come back further the cable lengths may work out fine.
