jj23 Just curious, what the biggest pair you can put on without having to change cables.


And does anyone know were they have to be rerouted to get them attached?

Wolfie ...all depends on what town yer ridin thru...semantics....but really, unless yer just gonna ride local, I cant see using 16"ers....my arms would be bloodless and numb 30 mins into a ride, and Im 6'1"...12's are more than enough to give you "the look".....16s are just silly, IMO, and I'd send flowers to your wake......

jadabull Personally I'm going with the 12's. As far as 16" being illegal, I guess depends on how the law is defined. The story of the man pulled over for illegal bars, and is puzzled when the cop said they can't be higher than your shoulders. So he stands up off his bike and said "they're not"!

If so what problems did you run into?

Thanks

Wolfie Stocks are 7.5" rise...IMO 16" is extreme and probably illegal....I was looking at wide 12" apes, I think at JP Cycle...16" are double the height and would place em well over yer shoulders, unless yer 6'11"....Id be wary....

My bad...they were Drag Specialties bars at Superstore....

slimvulcanrider I second Motion Pro for the cables, they can build cables to mete your exact needs, or you can also purchase some generic ones from them as well. for the Brake Lines, you can go with Russel.
For the electrical harness extension, you might need to build your own... I know there is a company that builds them ( I forget who), but from what I remember the VN750 is discontinued from the line up. Check out http://www.customchrome.com for handlebars and related accessories.

Motion pro should be able to take care of that for you.
