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"

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?

That's cool with me, I've worked with a lot of wiring & soldering tasks.

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

Hi to all,

I am looking to do the same mod with the same exact bars, now I`ve seen that Flanders website and thought its great cause I can order from there and do my own thing, but I was confused with all the different types of cable widths etc, anyone can help me out maybe with which cables I should go for for Clutch, Throttle (x2), and choke and maybe the lenghts I should go for if I am not asking too much ;)

Regards, Vulcan Al :)
