Cool 16" Factory 47 Signature Bar Install

2016 Road Glide Special FLTRXS
I'm 6'3" and I decided on the 16" version of the Factory 47 Signatue Bar. The stock Schwinn bars gotta go.
That being said...
I don't have the garage, the time or the patience to do the work.

My question to you is: What is the definitive highest quality route for extending the Control Wire, Throttle by Wire, and ABS Brake Cables (am I forgetting anything)? Which aftermarket gear is the best?

Ride safe...

Subscribing. I'm in the same boat bit I'm doing 12-14 still undecided.

I'm looking for a, black braided clutch and brake cables.

Is factory 47 wire kit no good?

Forgot to mention I'm a 2012 so maybe I should start my own thread?

On the wiring, the wire should come out of the bars with stock length. On the hydraulic lines it can be tougher. On mine, I was able to cut some ties and still make the lines work. It was tight but did work. The wires were a non issue though. Good luck.

Do you have a setup similar to mine? 16" apes? With factory brake and clutch lines? If it's possible to leave the hydraulic lines stock, that;s the route I want to take!

No way 16" without rewire and cables. maybe 14" on 2015+ . I used 6+ both break and clutch. I bought end to end on controls except TBW was long enough if I remember correctly. Talk to Factory47 and buy Namz and Magnum. Don't cheap out your life could depend on it.

No I have not... Probably will get it done next month. If it were a perfect world I would have your shop do the install. But I am in Honolulu and that's not an option.
