Extended cables

I鈥檝e got a VTX 1300c that I did a handlebar swap on and want to know where the best place to get cables and brake hose would be. I have the Baron custom adapter, 5 inch risers and 10 inch mini apes. I checked out Mean cycles and they say it鈥檚 3-4 week wait so what other options are there? Thanks!

I just found them and ordered throttle and clutch cables, but they didn鈥檛 have brake lines. Thanks!
You need to get 'build your own' brake lines. You buy the length hose you need. (I like braided steel lines but you can get other types in most any color). Then you buy end fittings in any shape (bend) you need for the master cylinder and the lower splitter block. Easy to put together yourself.
I have braided steel lines on my bike. Get stainless end fittings, NOT chromed that will flake, then rust over time.

I didn鈥檛 realize that was an option! But definitely that鈥檚 the way to go. Thanks!

Motorcycle Brake Lines | motorcycle superstore, they have fittings too. you want the an3 which is the size. its like 1/8" an4 would be 1/4" also 10 mm.
I already ordered from somewhere else but I should have waited for your post cause I paid too much! But thanks for the link!
