    There used to be an outfit near East Vic Park/ Welshpool area who made things like throttle cables. They did not have a press heavy enough to make clutch cables.

    Sorry I just can't remember, I'm talking about early nineties.
    If I have a look at the UBD it might help jog my memory. Hopefully someone else here knows who I mean.

    There is a place called The Lifting Company in Welshpool. Check with them.

    I also have it on good authority that the guy who runs the Moto Guzzi place in Bayswater is an expert on making cables. Old craftsman guy, been doing this stuff for decades, etc.

    El Skitzo wil probably also know suitable people.
    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    I talked to them about other stuff, that's why I remember they couldn't press heavy stuff like clutch cables...

    I'm pretty sure Flexible Drives was who did a custom extended clutch cable for me when I put ape hangers on a Kawasaki VN800, which they sent away over east to be done. It did end up breaking though.

    If you're only adding 2" risers you should be able to reroute all your cables to gain the extra length you need. They're usually tucked in tight with clamps etc and when you put them out and reroute them you gain more length that you'd expect. I put 10" ape hangers on a VN800 and the only cable that had to change was the clutch, the rest after rerouting were more than fine.

    Yeah Even clutch is on cable IT sucks but thats why i want braided lines AT least IT will be better then factory cables

    - - - Updated - - -

    On oz boulevard forum a few people have done that but IT kinks the lines If the handle bars a tummy to the left. The problem is i wanted to change the cables to braided ANY way so i just need 2" extensions from stock. Very hard to find a decent company for a realistic price though

    I know mine has clutch and throttle cable but there is no brake cable as it is hydraulic. That is why I asked why would 5yo bike have brake cable?
