New bars = new troubles

Hey all,

So I put Daytona bend bars on my bike today and now the clutch slips under load and my front brake seized on and now doesn't work at all. I was wondering if there is a way to re route the cables because of the extra length or if new cables are needed. My clutch has already been slipping under WOT but now it's very bad.

sounds like along with rerouting your cables, you will need to adjust your clutch, or look into getting new clutches. as for your front brake sizing up.. I doubt its the Brake hose causing the problems. you need to make sure the master cylinder is working correctly, and figure out why the calipers wont release.
