I usually use a piece of wire and tape it the original cable until the cable stops. Then, I run the wire on up to the clutch lever. Remove the wire and measure it.

Then go to Barnett's site and order the cable or see if they've got a "ready made" cable.

Good luck

Im putting 18 inch apes on my 2000 model 883 and i need help getting the right length cables do you know what they are?

Go ahead and change out your bars. Then use stiff wire to "fabricate" the cable from your clutch lever back to the derby cover. Do the same with the cables for your carb. Then go to this site to order your cables. While you're waiting on your custom cables to arrive, you can lenghten your brake line and wiring harnesses.

Ride Safe.
