New handlebars on the way!
I have been wanting to do this for a while. I finally ordered some new handlebars (10" ape hangars). I'm a little nervous about having to possibly reroute the wires through the handlebars, but mostly because it's going to be a pain in the butt. I'll also have to replace the clutch cable and the brake line with extended versions of each. I'll try to post pictures as I go.
The only question I really have at this point is about the brake lines. I have replaced brake fluid before, but it was a few years ago and on a car. So I'm familiar with the process of replacing the fluid, but not the actual lines. Am I going to have to drain the brake fluid from all of the brake lines, or can I somehow cut off the flow (to keep air bubbles out of the lines) and only have to replace the brake fluid in the one line that needs to be extended? Should I just try to replace all of the brake fluid in all the brake lines?
Thanks for your input in advance,
