Hey Longdude,

I'm by no means an expert, but I am currently trying a set of H-D road king handlebars on my '01 Spirit. Here's a link I found on eHow that shows a method of measuring handlebars that most manufacturers seem to use (at least from my looking around).

How to Measure Motorcycle Handlebars | eHow.com


As far as changing out for longer cables, a lot of that depends on how much of a change you are making. One way to look at it is: would your current handlebars be at the proper height (just not the proper angle) if you rotated them forward? If yes, you may be able to get away with your current cables.

I was hoping to use my standard cables and sneak them behind the "triple tree", but that put my throttle and choke cables rubbing on my tank when I turned my handlebar fully left or right. So I just wasn't comfortable with that.

As for getting longer cables, I took Crazy Dave's advice and ordered them from MotionPro.

Good luck!
Steve
