    I'm going with 16' Apes on my Nightster and was wondering if anyone out there has done the same. I need to know the lengths for the clutch, brake and throttle/idle cables. Thanks!

    Ive gone through a similat scinario with removing drag bars for beach bars.I taped a piece of mechanics wire to the existing cables and formed it to what I wanted.By simply holding the new bars in place you can get an accurate measurement.

    WYW has you covered, and J&P Cycles has the wire extender kits. Drag Specialties and Russell have braided brake lines, cable kits at an "affordable" price.
