    Hi Guys,
    I just spent a very unproductive couple of hours trying to install my new 10" mini apes. (Christmas present from The Chosen One)

    I put these on all my cruisers as they give me a better wrist angle and better fit my 6'7" frame.

    Shazam.....my original eyesight check of cable lengths was out and the clutch cable is toooooo tight when turning the bars. I looked at rerouting but nothing appears practical.

    I doubt anyone will be making 2" over cables for the Touring as yet, so does anyone know if the Touring shares the same clutch cable as the Standard and Classic.

    pete,
    the stainless is more attractive in the aesthetic sense. it matches the oem stainless brake line more closely than the black cable does .....

    I have 10" rise with a 10" pullback and at 6'4" all is OK, not perfect. I took the clutch cable from behind the plastic thing and clamp and let it run straight down, no problems but I would like to see the Barnett so I can return to stock look and maybe go more radical one day. Pictures?
