Chrome or Stainless Steel braided Cables

Since putting mini apes on my bike, I a now considering changing my cables to more visually pleasing ones. I should be ok with the same length of cables just looking for the right size or brand or any info on the matter.

I know some I you guys/gals have done this... Any info would be appreciated.

I bought the Baron Customs 12" kit for the 12" apes and did the conversion last weekend. It is a complete kit and bike specific. It is real nice. They are actually Motion Pro cables made correct length for the size of apes your using. It took the guessing out of what length cables to get.

Thanx

I'm using 8 3/4" or 9" apes so I think 12" cables would be too Long.

I'll check that site out though.

You can pick the cabels and length (if you want to change it) from the drop down menus. I think they ran me 260.00 I got the clutch, push/pull, and front brake.

What's the push/pull? Is that the throttle?
