  • Installing Ape Hangers On A 2004 Road Star

    Hello everyone I am new to the community! I have a question about installing apes on my Road Star. Does anyone know how tall I can go without having to change the wiring/cables? I am curious to know what I can get away with and I thought I'd ask here as there is a whole community versed on the subject. Thank you for sharing your knowledge in advance.

            I have 12" Khromewerks apes on mine and I wasn't able to use any original cables or brake line. I'm confident you could go with 10" apes like Lug Nut said. Wiring may be another issue to evaluate. I had to extend my wiring to run inside the bars.

              With 10" , all you Have to do is reroute your Cables to run behind the Top Triple Tree. Loosen your wires to fit and restrap them. Advise contacting Raymond Chan for an extended Front Brake Hose. Go 6" extension on Brake Hose, so if you decide later to increase your Bars , you can go clear to 16" without needing another Hose.
