    Default 1996 Honda shadow future bobber

    Looking to put 12" ape hangers on my 1996 shadow VLX. Does anyone happen to know wha length throttle cable, clutch cable, and what else I would need? Sorry if it has been asked. New to bikes and trying to get everything gathered up before I start the work.

    I just put 12" apes on my 96 vlx
    Stock throttle cable will work fine if you re route it
    Brake line is pretty much maxed out, but you'll def need a longer throttle cable. I read that a 750 shadow clutch cable will work, but it didn't seem like a direct replacement on the lever end.
    Right now I'm running the stock clutch cable, but it is maxed out completely and the lever is angled way down so that it'll reach. And my bars aren't angled back at all, straight up. Hope that helps

    Awesome thank you man. yeah im trying to get the parts I need before I put them on! I don't want mine angled to much either they will probably be straight up and down as well. Just want something that is different than the stock right now. I have a lot of plans just gotta start slow. You wouldn't happen to know any of the measurements would you?

    You have a picture of what yours looks like with the bars?

    What measurements are you referring to?
    Here's a pic of the bars and cables, and one showing the difference in the clutch cable I ordered.

    The length of the cables needed with 12" apes

    I'd go 4" longer on the throttle and 6 on the clutch. A few extra inches of brake line wouldn't hurt either
