Can anyone help me out. I'm looking to put on 12" ape hangers on my 06 VTX 1300c. I was just wondering if anyone knew about cable sizes I would need to get.

I don't want to come across as an a.. hole. Please take my comment with a huge grain of salt. I have never understood the appeal of ape hangers. I think it's a purely American phenomenon. I have seen a guy on a yellow Harley with ape hangers so high I don't think anyone but himself can ride that monstrosity. H must have cramps after just 5 minutes on his bike.

I agree with you about the height thing. For me it's just a little more comfortable

Slightly higher - say about shoulder height can be quite comfortable. Extreme ape hangers are just for show. I would never have them but support their decision on what to do with their bike.
