I was thinking of larger bars meself and I was gunna ask that same
question on here but you's have answered it now    but I do have
to ask this one, with the higher bars will I need get mirrors with shorter
stems on them and where can I get them,   don't laugh this is a serious
question, I am only asking cause I dont like hanging them off the bottom
of my bars upside down cause everything I see in the mirror would be
also upside down and that would be a pain.

I think you can Bluey or you could cut the stems and duct tape them on.  You would probably have to get shirts and jackets with longer sleeves as well.

Bluey...if ya swap the mirrors...left mirror to the right side of the bars and right mirror to the left of the bars
According to Einstein's theory of relativity you should see every thing in your mirrors the right side up....

I am with you Razor, I am telling ya some great advice right here, forum
knowledge at it's best   Pizz fuck me your right mate it did work as
you said it would, who would have thought   EZI63 I cut them down
and used that silver duct tape stuff, fuck me noone will even pick em hey, but
I couldn't find any shirts or jackets with longer arms so I just added some
spongey stuff to the top of the seat and now I can reach the top of my new
20 inch ape hangers easily .

Now all this has created a new problem, what I did was glue some blocks to the
bottom of my boots so I can reach the running boards   , using the brake
aint a problem but changing gears seems to be the problem   , I do have a
heel change lever but I don't want to put that on cause it looks a bit funny hey ,
so any suggestions

That on has always amazed me as well, "objects may appear closer" it's like I am
going to read this everytime I look in the mirror and I am sure we dont need to
be reminded of it with a permanent etching in the mirror either.

I concur Bluey .. much like the opening instruction on the bottom of bottles "Open other end"

But back on the throttle cable & bar conundrum ..
If the 16" ape are angled back .. like at a 30° instead of the 90° ..

the cable will NOT be need to be replaced .. if you run it directly to the carby & NOT down the bars, steering head & under tank ..

..

Don't panic about cables if you have higher Apehangers.

It's easy to fix without lashing out megabucks for new cables, wiring etc.

If your cables are 6 inches too short, cut the cable about half way along its length, then cut the 6 inches you need off one of the halves.
You can then add the 6 inch offcut to the end of your cable (or wiring).

See. Simple.   dance_08

If you need even longer cables, follow the above instructions but cut off a longer piece as needed.

Yep .. that is another solution Ken ..
I was taught that with rope .. but remember to add a little bit more to allow for the tying of the ends ..
