Have a 900 Custom that I'm wanting to add some set back risers and beach bars for my wife, to allow her easier reach and more leverage.

Are the Classic throttle, clutch cables and front brake hose longer than the Custom items or do they use the same ones?
If the same where should I look for extended items?

Thanks

You do know the handlebars mount differently on the Classic and Custom, right?

The Custom uses a welded "T" bar with two legs that bolt through the top tree yoke, the Classic uses a standard bar clamped to two risers that bolt through the top tree yoke.

Both bolt through the top tree yoke.
Essentially no difference other than possible length of cables to reach levers and throttle tube.

@rc4man you're welcome.. a few years ago there were at least 2 options (brands) for some stainless steel brake lines and as I recall we had a few discussions on the forum regarding the necessary length.. I remember the black stainless ones were looking extra nice..

*As you probably found out, the brake lines are also different part numbers between the two VN900 models:
VULCAN 900 CUSTOM: HOSE-BRAKE,FR 43095-0250
VULCAN 900 CLASSIC: HOSE-BRAKE,FR 43095-0291
