Handlebar Replacement Question???(2 posts)

Handlebar Replacement Question???andydave
Feb 13, 2003 8:38 PM
I need to replace my 42 cm (c-c) handlebars with 40 cm (c-c). For those with experience with this, does this generally require that cable housings be cut back slightly? Or is the difference in length too small to matter (i.e. can I just coil the cable housing a little more)? Thanks
Be sure the extra cable doesn't rest on the frame.dzrider

It's only 1 cm longer on each side so it's unlikely to cause a problem, but if it does, it can damage the paint at the contact point.
