LOL....second post tonight....should be pretty obvious that after getting slammed with snow here for the past two weeks in Central Oregon, I have cabin fever and have been working on some upgrades on the Wee...:grin2:

I installed a 2" extended front brake in anticipation of then installing some SW-Motech up and back risers (up 30mm, back 21mm). Getting to that junction block where the existing front line pipes into the ABS system was a BEAR (damn big hands) but I stuck with it and things finally went together. Still have to reverse bleed and do a few panic stops to cycle the ABS pump, etc.

Question is...the brake line is fine lock to lock but on left full lock, those throttle cable are reallyyyyy tight. I have the tank off so I couldn't start the bike and do the ol' "turn full lock left and see if your RPMs increase", etc.) Electrical lines from the bars on down seem to be fine.

I have one of Richland Rich's accessory shelves installed and also some Barkbuster Storm hand guards...the kind with the aluminum spine and all the mounting hardware on the bars. (see pic)

I did sit the bike and adjusted the bars to where I think I'll want them...and I'm pretty tall, so I really don't want to mess with dropping the front forks in the tree.

It looks like I can move the throttle cables one hole up and slightly right in that accessory shelf...but other than that, any suggestions on how to build in a little extra slack? I really don't want to mess with any connections at the TB end...how difficult is it to disconnect things at the throttle on the right grip...or am I overthinking things here?

Any insight or pics you fellow inmates have of a similar set-up would be GREATLY appreciated...

Thanks! And don't forget to move those clocks ahead when you go to bed Saturday night!

Try running the cables on the other side of the triples, works for me

I have the same shelf on my bike and put 2” Rox risers with +2 brake line as well. I had the same concern about throttle cables being tight but full turns left and right with the bike on an a center stand did not cause any idle changes. You could always roll the bars just a tad forward too and that could make a huge difference. You’ll be very happy with the change to the bike for sure. I’m 6’3” and it made things a lot more comfortable.
