||I am looking to put 18in. apes on my road king. I don't know exactly how to measure the throttle, clutch, and brake lines. can anyone help or if anyone has done the same could you tell me what lengths I need? thanks for any help.
||same as above
- the best way is to mount your bars on bike. then measure each line so that they look as clean as posssible. By: grizzly08 on: 1-30-2011
- also it is nice to put all wires internal in bars. By: grizzly08 on: 1-30-2011

- Check out Hill Country Custom Cycles, you can order the correct cables and wiring extensions in a kit by giving them the year, model & riser height. I've bought the entire bar set up for two bikes, pre-wired internally with braided stainless cables and billet controls. Pop off the tank and plug 'em up. By: Gator on: 2-5-2011
- 1ST THING TO CONSIDER IS LOSING YOUR FRONT END LOCKING,WHEN I CALLED J&P ALMOST A YEAR AGO,THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE MOUNTING AND LOCATION OF THE FRONTEND LOCK,TO CHANGE THE BARS MEANT YOU WOULD HAVE TO NOT WANT THE LOCKING ABILITY AND THE REPLACEMENT OF THE BRACKET THAT SITS ABOVE THE NACELLE AND KEEPS A FLUSH GOOD LOOK WITH THE COVER AND THE LOCK INPLACE,OTHERWISE THERE IS THIS BIG EMPTY AREA THAT LOOKS LIKE MORE THAN ANY JUST A LOCK IS MISSING. IS THERE SUCH A THING AS FLHR APES AND EVERYTHING GOES BACK THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO? IF SO I WOULD THINK THAT J&P BEING BAFFLED OVER MY ? AND MESSING UP MY PURCHASE OF THEM,MUST HAVE BEEN THE SAME FOR OTHERS THAT ASKED ABOUT THE BRACKET AND LOCK ATOP THE NACELLE,THEY JUST STUCK THIER THUMB UP THIER ASSES AND HAD NO ANSWERS ABOUT THE FRONT END LOCK AND MOUNTING BRACKET.

- It's a little late for an answer to your question, but it might help someone else. I put 16" apes on my FLHR and used +6" over stock, so I would think you would need +8" over stock.
Also, I almost messed up when lengthning my wiring... I thought I would put some extra wire so I added 9" instead of "6. It was barley enough to reach. The new bars were wider at the bottom. I would make the wiring plenty long (aprox 14" or so). You can always find a place to hide the leftovers. By: Guest on: 5-19-2011
- If you check e bay there are a few guys that make up kits for your specific bike. not to bad on prices either, if ya figure what your gonna spend when your done collecting all your stuff yourself. By: ironhorse1229 on: 6-29-2011
