Throttle and clutch cables

Do we know if the throttle and clutch cables are the same on the ends as the Sportster? Want to throw on some lower bars, but don't want to have lines binding all over the place.

Might not be a bad idea to start a sticky with a list of interchangeable parts, as well as aftermarket options for things like plugs, etc.

I'll try to check that out for you (if I remember) because I own both a Street 750 and a Sportster but the Street is at my partner's shop for tear-down. I'll be going over there in an hour or so and I just need to check to see if they're the same. They probably are.


If you need custom cables then PM me as we can make up whatever you need.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Good idea on a thread on interchangeable parts. Someone more knowledgeable on them might be best for that.

Just got back. My partner Matt, that's been building motorcycles for decades, said the clutch cable and brake lines are all standard. He suggests you put on the new handle bars and see where you're at before worrying about changing anything. As you mentioned you're going shorter so worst problem is too much cable and brake line. See what you can do with re-routing it possibly to take up the slack.

Is it possible to have the standard handlebars for the street ? cause currently the dia is smaller and most of the accessories don't fit

Good advice, hopefully that's what he goes through

What is standard handlebar? You mean 1 inch ones that comes on other Harleys? In that case you will have to buy switch gear and rest of handlebar stuff also because the current switch gear will not fit on a thicker handlebar

Yup, I thought of that too, but will the switch gears be compatible with the street electrical system or will this be an overkill mod ?

I don't think they are compatible, but I haven't really looked into 883 switch gear. One difference I can think is Harley generally has different left and right indicator switches. Street switch gear is similar to other Indian bikes.
Also you will find lot of options at 7/8th since most manufacturers use 7/8
