Hey guys, I'm looking to change my stock bars for a 10 or 12 inch apes. Just curious what recommendations are for bars, and if new cables are needed and what you all would recommend. Thanks.

The standard Harley bars work pretty well. I routed my throttle cables up the right side of the neck, Found some slack in the wiring under the tank and in the brake hose down by the fork lower. This was on my VT1100 Ace Tourer. I've since replaced the brake hose with an aftermarket braided stainless one using the AN3 fittings. decide on what angle you need at each end and the length of hose in between, easy. And that angle may change with new bars,,,

I've got some cheapy J&P 10" mini apes on my 97 Shadow ACE VT1100. Factory cable lengths were fine. Maybe some slight re-routing of the throttle cables.
