    Hmm2 Help with cables

    I just picked up a set of R bars for my 2007 VTX 1300c. I also have ordered a set of Scootworks PhatRisers. The risers will give me about 1 1/2" in height and 2" more pull back (based on R Model spec's). I believe that between the R bars and risers I will gain close to 4" in additional pull back from my stock bars. My questions is, without re-routing the cables behind the triple tree, how much longer of a cable/s do I need to purchase?

    Im guessing here based on the risers I added that were 4 inches tall.
    At that time, I was thinking that 3-4 inches longer would do it.
    Best bet is to do the install and then determine what you need.
    I am curious why you dont relocate to the backside.
    IMO..it looks nice adn cleans up the front end.

    I am concerned about the cables rubbing on the tank or being pinched on hard turns.
