Seems to me it would be easiest to just ask the guys at Exile...... That's the only way I would trust an answer.

Well, its not so much a matter of their product as it is with our bars (z-bars), and finding a cable that can be routed through them (2 90* bends + exit the handlebars) without binding or breaking. That is alot to ask for in a throttle cable. I have looked around and seen some people using piano wire with an adjuster between the carb and where the cable leaves the handlebars. Still looking though. The key is to have the cable the exact lenth, and of course not to break it.

Count me in too for the middle of January!


FWIW, their website shows a few bikes (Bar Hopper, Hot Rod, Steamroller, Softail Standard) with decent apes on them. Of course it would depend on your particular bars, but it appears that it can work with apes (maybe not Zs tho).

I think this can work with any type of bars as long as the cable can follow a natural bend, even is we all saw some in magazines that had twisted bars, don't forget those bikes hardly ride...

I'm wondering about taking a mtn bike cable housing that has a nylon/kevlar lining and running the piano wire through it. I don't know what exactly is offered for linings on them, but I do know there are some really low drag ones. Worth a try.

Exile offers an extra long cable for $25 and as long as you don't kink the cable, it will work. Exile uses this piece on every bike they build and John Mellencamp's chop has 14" apes...

Can somebody confirm this ?

I'll be checking this maybe tomorrow. I just looked at my 8" ZBars (Road6Customs) and they have 90* bends at the top and the bottom.

I'll take off my throttle cable, slide it into the bars and see how well it works...
