I'm not usually bothered by things that aren't perfect. I don't have to have every little thing in the right spot. The jungle of wires I have on the front of my handlebars have got to be a little tidy however. I have zipties and such, and I will use them, but I want to hear if anyone has some...creative ideas for my problem. Thanks!

not a whole lot that you can do with those cables motorBikeANT

but - I did notice - at least one cable looks to be too long

cables when shortened (at most times) look better

also - if done correctly - where cables run together
at times a little black tape

caution - if cables are too short
may cause variances when turning handle bars

at auto parts stores -- they carry plastic tubing
used to run wires through ???

In this pic, partially hidden by the date, you can see the clips I use. I got them at Ace. These clips fit 7/8" bars and are available with one round "bulge" to fit one cable, or a longer "bulge" that fits 2 or 3.

Can you say "split loom"?

Those cables are waaayyy to long. They need to be professionally trimmed to the correct length and zip tied to the top tube/down tube. Be careful of attaching them to the handlebars as the cables need to have some amount of free play/movement.

Hope this helps.
