Question throttle/clutch cable extensions for 15" apehangers

I am planning to have 15" tall ape hanger handlebars added to my vn750a-12 but before I buy them, I'd like to know the stock length of the clutch & throttle cables so I can adjust the measurements accordingly.
I already know the length needed for the brake line, but I cannot find anything on the internet about stock cable specifications.

The handlebars I am looking at, for whoever is interested, are at the T.C. Bros Choppers website & are listed as "Ape Hanger Handlebars - 15" Chrome Finish"
(http://www.tcbroschoppers.com/store/...products_id=71)

stock bars have an 8" rise so you would need a 7" over length cables.

would you know of a site or place that I could get extended electrical wires for the controls(turn signals, horn, starter, etc.), or would I have to make them myself?

Believe motionpro makes custom cables. But you will be way ahead money wise to make them yourself.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
