    You'd probably find they're the right length if your forks were in the right place.

    Why is everyone so concerned about my lowering the bike 2.5 inches in the front . Get over it! It rides fine. This site just seems to be full of hatin trowls ! Lol why u so mad that my front end is dropped ? Cuz u haven't dropped yours lol dayum ! This ain't a cruiser no more I'm in 2nd doing 40 @ probably 6 or 7k rpm and 3rd gear lol 70+ in a mid range rpm....btw I'm going to do a gsxr front end soon...to much power for those little 37mm forks plus a 18 front and back gonna run 120 18 and 160 18 rear !!!

    Ask for Ross. Tell him Kerry sent you. Have him look over that completely terrible death trap before you hurt yourself.

    And for god sakes put a fucking front fender on that shitpile before you take a puddle of pisswater to the face.

    When you "lower" the front end like you do you change the rake and trail of your bike. Trail directly affects your stability and handling. A lot of trail, and the bike will be super stable in a straight line but hard to turn, a little trail and the bike will fall into the turns but will wobble at high speeds in a straight line and while decelerating. If you have too little or negative trail your front end will want to tuck under you and the bike will pitch you off. The thing about bikes also is that these things change as you lean the bike over. Since you haven't run the numbers there is a possibility you have too little trail and you haven't hit the circumstance where you need the trail you don't have.

    Your ignorance of motorcycle frame and suspension geometry is only matched by the complete hilarity of your bravado.

    oh yeah? have you looked into that yet because I am pretty sure the shaft drive interchangeability of that bike with one that has an 18" rear is almost nil. I've never seen someone pull off an 18" wheel swap on one of those without converting to chain or machining an adapter for the rear wheel....but please tell me all about this planned 18" wheel swap.

    Oh yeah? who? what fine upstanding member of the Brooklyn motorcycle community told you that wreck was remotely safe?

    I still don't know why you just don't buy yourself a cb900F, it will have everything you want, will be much easier to mod, and uses substantially the same engine so most of your parts will swap over. Best part, you won't have to lower it to make it handle better (which is a fallacy anyway).

    BTW, to answer your question - your cables should be long enough to turn your handlebars lock to lock without it putting any tug or strain on the cable. If they are too long, learn how to shorten them or just live with it. Better to have too much length than too little.
