Apes that will work with stock risers and cables
I was looking at either 10" or 12" apes on my stock risers. I see a lot of conflicting information where some people are saying they will work on stock length cables and some don't.

Any final words on this lol? I'd love to order a set this weekend.

I assume you don't have a 1300, which doesn't have risers. Maybe @Maustarman knows. He knows all! Stay tuned.

Lol. @snaykbyte
Thank you.... I'd like to think so, but my 5yo started a campaign to prove I didn't know all at all times :)

Now to the Apes,
The tallest you can go with the stock risers is 10". Some claim to have done it with 12" but ti accomplish that the bars can't be to wide.

I got those 10 inch apes to work pretty easily. Minor cable re routing.

RE: Apes that will work with stock risers and cables
I was thinking of trying 10" Apes on my 650 as well. How are you liking it so far? Are they comfortable? was it pretty straight forward to swap them out? Did you have to adjust the clutch cable or anything? Also while I'm playing 20 questions (sorry) which brand apes did you go with?

I absolutely love them they are super comfortable to ride with. Swapping them out was pretty damn simple if you have some common sense you could figure out what to do with the cables. I looped the clutch cable out of the holster just to give me that extra couple inches I needed. Same thing with the brake line. I couldn't tell you the brand because I bought them used off craigslist. Just get any old 1 inch diameter bars. No reason you couldn't get this done in a night.

10" is as high as you can go with stock cables....risers are not a concern as most have 1" centers. The only other thing is the width.The wider the bar the lower the height can be. I'm adding a set to mine next week but building them just for the stock cables. Just make sure you compensate for the width when you get bars.

I realize this thread is old but I put 10" apes on mine. Super easy and super comfortable. Just a bit of cable rerouting.
