Anyone know the biggest bars i can go on stock cables ? i just bought some bars with a 10 inch rise not thinking about cable length. if anyone can let me know that'd be great! just so i can order some cables so they could arrive around the same time if i need them! thanks in advance

I just put a set of 8” mini apes on my 08 spirit . The risers are I believe 5 1/2 inches or so and the cables just worked . I still may get a longer front break line.

This being a 1989 VT 600C.....

This should help determining cable length but after review, 89' isn't listed. Sorry. And probably 7/8" dia. doesn't help much either. Probably looking at doing a complete changeover to 1" but throttle and grips are going to have to be changed also and maybe new cables. Other Words, a challenge for sure.

Just an update!

I have received my bars and with some cable rerouting i was able to fit all cables very well EXCEPT the clutch cable its just way to tight, so i ordered a universal cable kit and hopefully with the correct fittings i will be back on the road saturday (fingers crossed) lol
