Dirt Bike Handlebars Question

For those that have used dirtbike style handlebars on their street fighter builds.

Did you have to lengthen any wires or cables? or do the stock ones reach?

I figured someone would of answered, I haven't done it to a 250 it was a gsxr 750 and I was able to reroute every cable but the brake line that I measured and ordered a longer one

Potentially relevant thread. Maybe reach out to see what worked and didn't?

Well we have the bars and risers already. We'll start mounting them and see what we need to extend. It looked like if I re-routed the cables most of them would be long enough. I also may trim the bars a bit shorter if that helps, they don't need to be quite as wide as they are. If it's just the brake line that would be fine, it needs to be replaced with a braided stainless anyway.

I'm looking to do straight drag bars on mine and ftom rough mocking there's an inch or so of leeway in cable lengths before having to buy longer ones.
Anyway, where are you putting the mounts on the triple? I'm thinking of drilling out the stock mounting points and using those. Ive been trying to find a riser that uses an M8 bolt but no luck so drilling is it.

Looks like Clutch Cable and Brake line are too short to work with dirt bike handlebars. Need to find longer ones.

Bugger. So how did you end up mounting the bars and what risers did you use?
I'm thinking I'll use these ones and mount them at the original points.
