New bars for an 01 Vstar 1100 custom??

So im on the quest to find new bars that look nice & have a more bobber/bagger look but still allow stock cables to reach. I just bought the bike this past weekend and only thing I want to change for now is the bars!

Since i'm brand new to stars I would love some input and ideas from all you seasoned vets out there on what will work and what wont

Have a good day!

The handle bars are one inch in diameter.
So you're looking for lower than stock bars? I believe any bar will work out. Taller bars or risers can cause an issue with rerouting cables or buying longer. Shorter bars shouldn't be a problem with that at all. Beyond that it's up to your personal taste what style you get.

i went with 12 inch mini apes i have 6"over clutch with 10" apes you would probably need 4" over clutch.Throttle is different cause it hangs down 2" over would probably be fine.you dont need a push cable.and the choke you can relocate, i went with a 650 cable and mounted down next to the tank.

I've got a set of 11" that will work with stock cables. Thought the clutch is pretty tight. If you found a used Classic clutch cable (they are about 3/4" longer) it works perfectly. They are a one off custom made set painted black.







They need a new coat of paint but I'd let them go for $80 shipped. I might also have a Classic clutch cable I'd throw in for another $15....and I'd throw in the risers that I had machined to fit.

Let me know if you are interested......

No....they are HK Side Burners. I like the look a lot, but I think I prefer the sound of a 2-2 pipe.
