Hey guys! I am new to the forum. I am installing 12 inch ape hangers and I am looking for answers on length for the cables.
what length should I use? Where to get them? And also if someone could tell me what lengths are the stock cables? I just want to do it right the first time. The internet hasn’t been very helpful.
I am going for the chopper look!

I would also like to thank all of you for the extremely useful information you’ve provided since I got the bike!

I don't know that anyone can tell you. You probably should measure them and have them made custom.

Size of bars isn't the only factor, shape matters too, and that makes for many variables.

Where to get them?
Best source would be for you to find an oldschool bike shop with a mechanic over 50. He probably has the solder pot and can make the cable for you.

Otherwise, there is MotionPro.

And also if someone could tell me what lengths are the stock cables?
Again, I don't think there is a listing. Don't you have one on the bike you can measure? Or you think yours isn't stock?

I am going for the chopper look!

That isn't the most common mod for these bikes, which is why you are having so much trouble.

I just put 8” high tomaselli bars on mine, and bought new cables from the XS400 special model. That model has higher bars from factory, and i found the lenght good for my bars, clutchcable even at bit longer than needed.
