I found this site and seen some pretty cool stuff there.I am looking at the chrome wire braid and am wondering if any one has used this stuff.I thought it would look good to cover the wires from the controls if you dont have hidden wires in your bars.It may also work to cover your throttle and clutch cables.Save some bucks from buying new cables.

I used the black braid fromhttp://cableorganizer.com/clean-cut/. I started out with chrome covering, then, BillH suggested black instead. I'm glad he suggested that, but ya can't go wrong with black or chrome. Here's what it looks like:

Sort of just blends in, instead of standing out.

isle, I got those, man they are a pain in the butt. I ended up not using them. its hard as **** to get them to go on and then they splinter and do not hold at the ends. I ended up using chrome cablecovers of another type. They were a breeze to put on and look OK too.

Here is a pic

Thanks guys,it says you can use heat shrink to finish the ends off.Did you try that Bismarck?

ARwarrior,the black looks good but I have the stainless cables and brake lines on mine so I was looking to dress up the wires as well.

Dennis,
If I remember correctly, I got some 3/8 and 1/2, since the throttle
side is smaller. When compressed, this stuff gets large enough
to slip over the conector ends with no problem. I got their heat shrink
finishing ends in 1/2, they went over the ends, but took some work. I used
some of the 3/8 Kuryakyn wrap on the two wires going to the clutch switch.

isle, with those, its a pain just getting them to go on. Also you cannot get them arounf the connectors, Over all its a major hassle and god knows that usually does not stop me. Also they do not look as good since they do not hold their shape, just the shape of the wires. You can deal with the end, but the problem is during the process of putting them on, they splinter to such a poin that you cannot salvage them clean.

Twisted, The ones I got are from here:
