If you are going with internal wiring....just know that it's a pretty big job you;re getting into.
You need to cut the factory wire, solder in a length of new wire, then resolder the factory wire with the plugs on the end back on after you string it through the handlebars. There are over 20 wires, so plan on taking at least a full day or two to get this done. It is a lot of cutting and soldering. I'd suggest buying matching colored wire or colors very close to factory...it just makes it so much easier. You'll know for sure what wires you're working with when you have an electrical issue....
Make sure you cut the factory wires at different length intervals so the soldered sections aren't all in the same place. That makes it damn near impossible to pull them through the bars.
Also, make sure to test the continuity of each one after the wires are pulled through....before resoldering the end on.
