On the Virago 125 I have, it currently has ape style bars...which, even if they were not bent slightly, I don't really like.

Can I just swap these for straight bars or will I need to shorten cables etc?


Can you tell I am not that great on mechanical stuff? lol that being said I did manage to fix the idle stalling issue :D

shouldnt affect the cables at all, they will just bend more and be generally more in the way



(depending on how big the bars were and what you are putting on, be careful not to bend the clutch cable too much, causing resistance on the cable)

This sounds about right, although have no actual experience but never heard of problems when people change to ultra low renthal bars form normal etc.
