So, I read every thread ever posted on this forum regarding installing mini 12" apes and it looks like I am going to have to play it by ear. I was hoping I could speak to somebody who actually did this because I need to know what parts I need to get besides the brake hose. Once I get the original bars off I need to get the new bars on and all buttoned up and ready to go the same day.
So far I have read the following regarding 12" mini apes...
I need to change the brake hose to a longer one
I don't need to change the brake hose to a longer one
I need to lengthen the electronic cables
I don't need to lengthen the electronic cables
I need to reroute the clutch and throttle cables
I need to replace the clutch and throttle cables with longer ones
I need to remove the tank
I don't need to remove the tank
Its a straight forward easy job.... just get going!
Its a pain in the but and I am going to need alot of expensive parts that aren't readily available.
I would have thought that changing the bars to 12" mini apes or larger would be a fairly popular thing because the stock bars are fairly narrow and low.
