Default Custom Handlebars - Cable Length?

I have a question to make life easier. What cable length is needed for different handlebar options? Like, we know the '04+ models have handlebars with slightly more pullback and slightly longer cables than '02-'03. Plus sometimes the stock cables work perfectly with aftermarket handlebars, like theYamaha TT Bars use the stock cables perfectly. Its such a hassle every time we want to consider a handlebar swap.If you have aftermarket handlebars installed on your Warrior could you please post-up what year Warrior you have and what handlebars you have, and if you have longer cables say how much longer they are? If you have a picture of your bike with the bars/cables installed it would be even more helpful. Thanks!


I have the '03 with Yamaha TT Bars and stock length cables. The electric wires are a bit short - I hope to change that this winter.

Here's the dimensional differences:
[*]Handlebars - Stock - 2002-2003: 11-1/2" pullback 34" wide 6" rise[*]Handlebars - Stock - 2004-2008: 13" pullback 34" wide 5-1/2" rise[*]Handlebars - Yamaha TT - '02-'08: 10-1/2" pullback 34-1/4" wide 6-1/2" rise[/list][/list]

Hey AZ, I've got an 07 Warrior and had the CP punisher bars with 13" of pullback and 33" width and I did not need to extend any wires at all. I just put on some six inch risers with some drag bars and now have excess wires. I don't have any pics of the drag bars in my gallery yet but the CP bars are shown on the bike. I hope this helps out!

Ari,


If this is going to be another one of those very interesting tables I came across with your signature, can you ask for the tach/speedo visbility as well?

Im still running the stockers, but think that this post could be an amazing tool for people such as myself, who don't know what direction to turn with their bars, even after using the search function. I trust your opinions(and pics)way more than I trust someone who is trying to sell me theirbars. I hope we can keep it going.

I installed Milwaukee Twins Radius Drag Bars (8" rise, 8" pullback, 33-1/2" wide) and replaced my cables with ones that are 4" over.

That's nice of you to say. The surveys have been group efforts and the guys on this forum know their stuff and are willing to share their experiences. There's no plan to go to that extent in the future but if we can get a bunch of data from members about handlebars here (and grips in that topic that was started) then we should all be able to pick our next handlebars! Thanks again.

Hi,





I really like the T-bar styling and would love to get a set of Carlini Super Sweeps but I want more pullback. Does anyone know of a T-Bar that has more pullback than the Carlini's?





Thanks!


Randy
