    hey guys. I’m wanting to try and fit a taller and wider handle bars onto my v7iii. The problem I’m having is I cannot find a website that sells longer clutch and throttle cables. Does anyone know where tho get them or any ideas on how to do it myself?

    Thanks!

    You will have to have custom cables made. Some motorcycle shops have that capability. This outfit can make then for you, but you must provide very accurate dimensions. https://www.motionpro.com/c/custom-cables

    They say they don’t know if they have the fittings and that I would have to send them my cables for them to see if they can do that

    I’ve put some of the tallest ATV bars on a Stone for a customer, and with clever rerouting, length was a non-issue for front brake line and clutch cable.

    I would try with the existing cables first. If that does not work, then spend the time and money to get new cables as needed.

    Exactly.
    If the old ones don't work then at least everything is in place for accurate measurement.

    OP: Might want to look around for any custom bike builders in your area.
    They may have the ability or know a local who can make them.

    I think I remember somebody here putting on Rox risers by rerouting the cables.
