Looking for wire & cable advise

I'm wondering if anybody is running 16 Mad Doggers from Buky Bars? I just ordered mine and am now researching clutch cable, brake line and wire extension lengths. What are you running and what is your recommendations? I've been reading for a couple of hours now and my eyes are crossed and brain is now mush.

I have the 14 Mad Doggers on mine, I got the stock cables to work with some relocating but after mocking them up I measured for a +5, I ordered +6 to be safe fro both clutch and brake line. This will allow me plenty of play and I can route through factory locations with no problems. As far as wire extensions I went with +12 on those, you will have enough wire from the factory to pull through the bars and then add the wire extensions. Only reason I'm not sticking with stock cables since they worked is because I hate the way it looks.

BEEEER!!!!!!!!!!

Cant help you with the cable selection if you need it... but on my old RoadKing I used Guerilla wiring products they are made in USA

I want BUKY's as well for the new bike but cant get a call back?

It's a mighty world we live in!
but the truth is...
