The only place I know of to get custom cables for Japanese bikes is MotionPro, and they are definitely not cheap. You will need all the cables, and a new brake hose, which you can get from Russell. You will also need to extend the wires, that is cheap, but very tedious and time consuming. As long as I was going to do all that, I would at least go for 15" apes. Jerry.

check out my scribd docs (in my sig) for how to make cables... just get the bulk cables and make them your self... then to make them chrome... you can get chrome conduit from JC Whitney. or several other places...hit me up in a pm and I can dig up all that info for you.
