I'm preparing to change my handlebars from the fugly stock handlebars to some LSL Superbike bars and adding in the CRG shorty brake and clutch levers while I'm at it. Will I have any trouble with the length of the cables when I do the change? What tools should I have on hand? Also, the threading is stripped on my mirror and it seems like the mirror is part of the clutch/brake assembly that won't change. How do I get the piece for a mirror to screw into. I don't want to add bar end mirrors but, I would like better mirrors without spending a fortune. The Rizoma's are SWEET but, expensive and I also have a car to fix. Anyone have suggestions on non bar end mirrors and how to attach them?

You might check in on the Thumper KV. I'm sure they can fix ya up. There are folks who've run the SB bars as well as others. Sounds like you might need some risers too?
