Default VB Tarzanz bars install pointers needed

Installing Tarzanz apes on my scoot . Looking for clutch cable routing options to free up a couple inches , also wondering if anyone has lengthened their wires to keep them more tucked against the bars , or just left them the stock length and had them be more stretched . I believe the bars are +2 / +2 . I am trying to get it as neat as possible and avoid this look : see picture below of wiring at sharp angle due to being a little short , but will reach as is .... What have you fella's done ?

It's tough to see from the photo, but could you route the clutch cable behind the triple tree? That's what I had to do with the brake line when I added CC bars to my CR, and it worked, although the clutch would be a lot easier. I had to disconnect the brake line, and then bleed them after.

scooter , is this pic better ? I will check your routing idea tonight but I think it will take more then that to get the slack needed .... Notice the wiring going diagonal due to its being to short now , do any of you guys lengthen the wiring to get it nice and tucked close to the bars ? Solder and shrink wrap so to speak ?

Wow those bars really stretch out your wires and cables. Your're going to want to do something about that sooner or later, it takes away from the look of the bars.

Agreed , I want to fix it now ..... Wondering if others have lengthened the wires or remedied this also .... I don't want to strip this down again for a long time ...

If you go to the VB site, they display the bars with the wires and cables about like your's are Victory Cross Country Handlebars Magnum | victory aftermarket parts cross country cross roads
Are the Trazanz bars drilled for internal wiring? If you're going to go through the trouble and work of extending the wires, you might as well get them in the bars.

Looks like my radio and cruise switch wires will be short too . I believe they will all reach but the desired look I want will not be achieved without extra labor , if its even possible ....

Looks to me like you're gonna have to bite the bullet and do it properly.
Wiring you can handle extending so it neatly follows the bars, remember to stagger your joins to avoid one big bunched up join.
A pain in the arse for sure.
What about clutch and throttle cables?
I just managed to get my Burleigh Bars on by re routing the clutch cable behind the triple tree, and pulling the brake hose through its fitting, but mine are reasonably close to original hand position.
Patience will get you through the wiring but cables may require money.
I don't understand why you didn't wait for winter.

if you cut the wires. Cut them at stager lengths so you don't have a big bunch.
