Ape hangers

I wanna put a set of ape hangers on my 750 street. How big can i go without having to change out my throttle, clutch, and brake cables? Thanks

Did you have to do anything with cables? did they have to relocate cables and or wiring? if so can you go into detail at all? they look really nice on the bike.

How do you like the look of the ape hangers with the Speed Merchant pipes? I've been debating on getting ape hangers or going more with an Iron 883 handlebar set. I feel like if I did go with the ape hangers, I would have to go with a seat like this:

That's a sweet seat. Never seen one like that on a Street. Very curious to see how it would look.

Finally have my 12 inch mini apes installed on my XG750. There are things I need to do to finish this up but I like the way it rides. The Vid will explain.
