Which extended cables for ape hangers

What extended lines are you guys running for apes?

I'm installing a set of FMB 16" on my RG. I got a clutch and brake line kit made by LA Choppers, and I'm not impressed. The lines are way too long (by about 4"), the "black" fittings are a poor finish, and the compression ends at the clutch connector and brake manifold seem really fragile.

I haven't pressured up the hydos yet and am seriously considering pulling it off and returning it. Anyone got good experience with longer clutch and brake lines?

Thanks for the help guys. Looks like Magnum is the winner on this one. I like how they do the brake line for the dual disc, with the lower hoses already manifold-ed together.

Hopefully I'll get this project done and I can post up some pics.

Thanks again.

I used Drag specialties for my +4 clutch cable and brake hose and was very pleased, I used on a buddies bike Burly Brand which he purchased for me to install and I was not impressed either, would not use them on my scoot. I have heard good things from Magnum as well as I love Barnett's too.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I bought Magnum, found good price and free shipping on ebay. Came in packaged as new, one cable was missing the crush washers so I asked seller to fix (not the cost, but to see if I would use these guys again) well it's been a long slow fix but after 2 weeks they are shipping me something. I hate giving bad ebay reviews if they work with me, but 2 weeks for $2 item seemed much. Hasn't affected me cause still waiting on my custom length apes from KST to show up.
