ape hangers

Hello all

Was gifted a set of 14 inch ape hangers. Having a bit of trouble finding cable kits to fit. Does anyone have any leads to where I may find or if there are kits from harley that will fit?

most kits I see are for harley, and or claims that won't fit vulcan bike.

Thanks Ant

Remember, our stock bars are 7/8" diameter. The HD bars may be 1".

7/8 bars I have its the cables I was wondering about - the specific details within the cables and those little hook up tabs that fit the linkage areas.

After from what I see and am being told I may not be able to do this without extensive cost and such

At 14" you'll need custom cables.

My understanding with the 4 cables you need it would be a $200 project or so via MotionPro. Not cheap =/ Doable though, just ask for VN750 throttle/clutch/choke cables + X inches.

How tall can you go with the handlebars and keep the stock cables? I was looking at some 12" apes, but would definitely go down to 10" if that meant I didn't have to do new cables!
