Hi,

My dad died about 8 years ago and I got his Rebel 450. In it's original state it's not really my thing so I was going to sell it untill I saw some awesome bobbers made from this model so I have decided to give it a try...
:D
I started stripping it and need to order some stuff now. I would like to replace the original bar with a dragbar but want to avoid extra costs so my questions is: Does anybody know the maximum width of a dragbar before you need to start changing the cabling?
I was thinking of a 90cm bar but have no clue if this is too wide and woud like to know if I need to go down to 80cm (or less) to keep the original wiring.
Thx for your help
Greetz

A drag bar needs less cable than going taller so I wouldn't worry bout it unless you plan on something in the 40+ inch wide range. ;)
