Where can I pick up a set of extended cables for the F2? The stock ones baaaarely work with the MX bar setup, only has a problem turning to full right lock, but I don't want to mess anything up. I tried rerouting, but that didn't really work either. I could do it extremely ghetto and run it outside the tank, instead of tucked the way I have it now... but I'd rather just get longer ones. Anyone?

most cycle shops carry assorted cables or can make cables. Just find one that does and take yours in to find what you need. Also, I just put a little T handle on my choke cable and secured it to my frame by the neck.

Hmm, I should look for honda dualsport cables. I should really measure mine and see exactly how long they should be be, before buying anything new. I will probably be dropping the bars another 1/2" or so, that might get me some play as well.

I almost wound up getting a line from a KLR, but when I seen one up close, that line would've been insanely long.

Those lines shouldn't be more than $25 at the very most. I'd walk into a dealership and start looking at their bikes and if the end piece would fit the same. Not sure if it was on this forum, but I read somewhere were you can attach the cable onto the end piece of another cable.

I don't think there's one person here that hasn't rerouted lines. Look that the first page of my build, I think that's one of the first things I did was reroute my lines. Then I got ss break lines and then the longer clutch cable from a dl650. I would've kept the stock but the cable was all chewed up and needed a new one anyway. My throttle cables are still stock, reroutes as well as my electronic wires still the same.

no, not bad at all. I paid about $100 for 2 throttle lines and 1 clutch line. All +6", stock fittings on the throttle, and for the clutch I had them switch the sheath end fittings from curved to straight to better fit my application. Worth every penny.
