Well I extended the wiring just not the cables, I have the cables but got the factory ones to work. My indy shop ordered me NAMZ wire extensions +12 and they were all color matched and had female molex pins for ease of connection, I highly recommend them, and the extra wire made it easy to to put everything back in factory location inside the fairing. I didn't take any pics of how I got the wiring through the bars but I can describe it. Check out the sticky at the top of this section as they were very helpful.
1. Take pictures and draw a wiring diagram of your harness before you take any of them apart.
2. I pulled the switch wiring through with the Harley black liner on it and the liner hung up at the bottom hook, just the wires from there out. I didn't feel like pulling it back through again so I ran heat shrink inside just to protect them, they should be fine just laying in the bottom of the bar.
3. When you go to pull them I ran a small hobby chain through the bars first and then attached that to 550 para-cord and used that to pull them. The chain kept breaking because you have to PULL hard, at least I did.
4. Once I had all of them through the bars I soldered on the wire extensions heat shrunk em and then a little tape over that because I am overkill with things.
5. If you don't plan on using the heated grips go ahead and cut the small black harness off with the TBW, it makes it easier to pull that one through.
6. I didn't do the TBW hardwired because I pulled all of mine with the harness off so as to not stress it by pulling on it.
7. It took me about 3 hours to disassemble the harnesses, run the wires through and reassemble the harnesses. Everybody has a different experience with this and it wasn't the easiest but worth it in the end. I can see why shops charge what they do.
I also shot a little WD40 in there for some lubrication while pulling them. Let me know if you have anymore questions that I can help with, others will chime in to I'm certain and they may have a better way this was just how I went about it.
I just had to unclip the front brake line right below the tank and it is plenty long enough from that point on and the clutch just needed rerouted to the outside of the fairing bracket/necklace area. I have the extended cables but will put them on when I make other changes and just do it all at once, for now I wanna ride so it doesn't bother me.
