Default Cable Cleanup

Has anybody done any sort of clean up on the highball handlebar cables? Other than running them internally, I'm not sure if there's anything to make them looker neater. Anybody out there done anything with them?

I have always wanted to do this as well. I think Victory has really been lazy with cables on the Highball. It makes it look unfinished and cheapish.

Definitely keen to hear what's possible.

Any pics of that? Do you mean they do the full bars or just a kit to convert the stock Highball bars?

On my phone so cant do links but I'm sure you can punch in Burleigh bars.com on your puter and they also have a farcebook page.
I have a thread '$100 off Burlieghbars'
On here if you do a search youll find it and the links..

I'm gonna try to route wires internally this winter, and use some swivel clamps like I used on my HD's for the cables. I will place them over the holes in the bars and it will clean them up some. The wires will come out near the risers, where I will drill holes in the speedo mount plate to send them to the headlight bucket. Not a perfect setup but it will be a little cleaner.

As long as i'm on this side of the dirt, life is good.

Well it's not for everyone, but it's still better than the factory set up in my opinion. My goal was mainly to avoid the buildup of bug guts on the wires.

Only other pic I have that's farther away.
