    CB-1 bars: What cables & brake lines?

    I intend to put cb-1 or Bros short handlebars on my hawk (in between the height of the stock bars and f2 bars or clipons). I expect that this will put some slack in the stock choke, clutch, throttle cables and brake line, but not as much as clip-ons would. Has anyone used this setup and can help me identify the correct cables and brake line to use?

    Thanks in advance!


    My bike has clip ons with the stock cables- everything works fine as is.

      stock cables with f2 clipons under the top triple and it all worked fine on my bike

      if you want to try, buy shorter cables hord sells them but i think its just a cosmetic issue

        Stock with a little re-route works fine with these bars.
