Are 6" over stock cables long enough to run 16" apes on an 02' FLSTC? A friend of mine is running 12" apes on a 96' Fatboy with stock cables so I thought 6" over might fit for the 16". Just wanted some more input before I order. Thanks

I just did 12" apes on g/f FLSTF and went 6" over for everything. I figured it out by using a flexable tape (like the girls use for sewing) and running it down the bars (internal wiring) and then comparing that measurement to the acutal wiring that runs along the stock bars. Turned out perfect - nice gradual arc in throttle/idle cables and the new clutch cable.
