Default Opinion/feedback on braided cables?

I'd like to replace my fast idle, clutch, and throttle cables with the braided cable set listed here:

http://www.purepolaris.com/en-us/Vic...+2007+Vegas%22

Are they something that the average person can install or do they require special tools? They seem to be slightly superior to the regular cables and they look better in my opinion. Can anyone else comment on them?

Does your clutch cable really show. Try Barnett http://www.barnettclutches.com/products/cables.aspx

Is their any difference between the stainless steel cables that are sold under Victory's brand name and the Barnett? It took some looking around but I discovered that the 'Victory Comfort Grips' sold by Polaris are just re-branded Kuryakyn grips. So is this also just a case of re-branding?

Most of Victory's accessory line are made by Kuryakyn. Instead of farming out the work to several smaller shops; Victory decided to simplify things and get almost everything through Kury.
