First bike and putting 14” apes on it. Was poking around and couldn’t find any information. My stock cables are to short and just wanted some experienced advice on the way to approach this task. Thanks In Advance

There are usually kits but you might have to have custom made cables.. check for an extended cable kit for your bike..

FYI .. you need to post YEAR/MODEL for most users to be easier help you .

Hey thanks for the response. My father bought them at a swap meet so idk what’s what since it’s my first go at it.
Also it’s a 2012 950 vstar

You'll need to measure the extension you'll need from the stock cables to the new cables..and than look for an extended set that is about the same or longer or get total custom cables made and I would go on the long side not the short side of your measurements by 1-2 inches... don't forget you'll have to extend the wiring too.. there's no kit for that.

I also forgot you'll have to extend the brake hose too !! Here's a Baron's kit that is designed for 12-14" apes
