  • HAAALP!! Adding apes, need longer wiring.

    Does anyone have a source for extending the control wiring when adding apes?

    Have to cut and splice yourself and if you want a clean look run internally through handlebars... It's quite a job but having someone do it would be $$$ (labor for that would be 300-500)...

      Looks like it's crimping time.

        I have routed my wiring through my handlebars countless times and I strongly suggest that crimping is not the best avenue of attack. Cut your wires at different lengths so that no two splices are touching. Solder your connections, wrap the bare wire with vinyl tape, and finish with shrink tubing using a heat gun. When it comes time to pull the wires through the bars you will be glad you did it this way. I have been able to pull the wires out successfully to change bars several years later. Make sure the dimpled openings in your bars are free of burrs. If you plan to use the factory connections you will have to make two splices per wire. It is best to cut your wires at equal lengths prior to starting. The pins in the connectors are not difficult to remove. I use a very small hex key sharpened on the long end to depress the tabs. It works well because its hardened and doesn't bend. It really isn't a hard job but it is time consuming. Good luck!

          Don't forget your front brake lines will need to be lengthened also.
