What kind of total cost is involved, between longer cables and brake lines on top of the cost of the bars? I've been thinking my junk might get some apes soon...

I have 12's and didn't replace the clutch or the throttle/idle cable. Difference on my cost was the brakes ~150 for my dual disk setup. That was the ouch of mine, I will get the clutch cable later but works the way it is still. Wiring i did myself too.

I really want the black 12" from harley now to replace my chrome ones!

Stingray,

I bout my cables from indy and only paid $25 for each and he just gave the the longer brake line.
All in all I paid around 200 for all the parts.
