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!

I have heard someone on here talk about some bars with 16 inches of pullback. I will keep looking in the search and try to find a name.

I put the carlini super sweeps from pacific coast star. I had to extend the wires as I internally wired. The clutch and brake cables/lines are long enough, but I am going to go with plus 2 so they look better. The speedo is not visible unless u look over or under the T. I keep the needle at twelve o'clock and it works fine....

I am going to bring this back from the dead because withmy bomber bars I have all kinds of slack on my '05 and it looks sloppy. Has anyone confirmed how much shorter the '02-'03 cables are than the '04+? Would us bomber bar guys be better off going with custom length cables?

Sorry I missed this post earlier



It seems like there would be so much benefit to knowing the cable length and the case length for each of the stock factory clutch cable part#'s but the problem is none of us removes a cable unless it breaks. I just can't seem to get the info so can't post it. What I have been able to get, although its unverified as of today, is posted under Handlebars in the Popular Mods post. But its not good enough to do us any good and I'm unable to get both the cable and casinglength dimensions for any one source

This winter I am going to investigate this more and possibly order custom length cables if needed. Another idea is to stop by the dealer and see if they have either of the cables in stock that someone can physically measure?? I may try that beforetearingeverything down.

2008 Warrior with risers that are 4 up 1 back. (stock risers are 1.5 up, 0 back) This gives my stock bars 14" pullback 34" wide 8" rise


Throttle and Clutch cables were fine as stock. I had to replace the upper brake line. I added 4", though I should probably have only gone 3" over. At +4" it's a bit floppy. --SK

Handlebars - Stock - 2004-2008: 13" pullback 34" wide 5-1/2" rise

I just went to the dealer to look at the difference in stock cable lenths but they didn't have any in stock!


From looking at the dimentional difference in the stock pullback & rise between the different years, I would guess the lenth is about 1"-1.5" shorter on the 02-03 model.


Looking at the 05 stock bars vs. the bomber bars (what I have) I would guess I will need to go with custom length cables. There is a difference of 8.5"!! When I do the math it is no wonder I have a big hoop of cable sticking out past the bars. Unless the 02-03 cables are more than 3" shorter I thinkg it is best for anyone with bomber bars to get custom cables.

'04 Warrior with CP1120 Punisher Pullback Bars, 8" rise, 13" pullback, using stock length SS cables, although have noticed clutch cable could go +2", but no major binding issues.

Also, for those with vision issues, these bars DO HIDE THE SPEEDO. On the highway, I can see it if I scrunch my head down and to the left a bit...the numbers from 70 to 120 km/h are obscured a bit. (we're metric)45 to 80 mph, roughly.
