Anybody know if any vendors make longer than stock control cables and wiring for this bike?

I don’t know your plans but I know from experience you can get about 2” of setback with stock wires & hoses.
I do not know of anyone making extended sets.

Can't remember which vendor it was when i was thinking about moving my handlebars back but there was one to whom you send your control cables and they send it back in the new length. Maybe a search here will find those discussions.

Check on YouTube if you are mechanically inclined it isnt terribly hard to do it yourself. People are always parting out bikes on eBay if want to get a part from there to modify in case you mess up yours.

It looked like after cutting and moving some zip ties the only thing i really needed to lengthen was the parking brake cable but decided not to do any of it. Still need to sell the Rox risers sitting in my shop.

I would take another look at your cable routes. I have the parking brake on my trike and also have 2" Rox risers installed and I didn't have to replace anything.

Two inch Rox? Let me know if you want to sell them?

Agreed. I have the Rox risers also. Cables will be fairly tight, but it's doable.

Roxy's here, no extensions, but you do have to do some rerouting. Posted a pick of it in on an old thread.

Hi Bob, I have a question about the cables on the CTX (I'm thinking of adding a 2" Rox to bring the handlebars back)...do you move the cables under the handlebar ....if so is it difficult to loosen them underneath? Thanks in advance.
