not sure about the clutch cable, long enough but not pretty, might try 955 Tiger one and route round front of yoke

Throttle cables go through frame under tank, action a bit stiff, again might try 955 tiger cables

I love it.

I'll be drilling and reinforcing the OE triples to the same effect.

Did all the controls reach except the brake hoses?

Brake pipes needed changing, speed triple clutch cable, original throttle cables. Had to extend the wiring to the left hand bar switchgear. Also had to make little bracket for brake fluid reservoir but that was easy. Ignition switch is not fastened to top yoke so no problems there. Not sure I'd bother with drilling an original daytona yoke, the top face isn't flat which makes it very difficult. Search ebay for an S3 is much easier option.
Good luck whichever way you try, it's transformed the riding experience for the better.

I converted my CBR to handlebars. Having to machine a flat spot for the risers to mount isn't an issue Just takes a while using my drill press as a mill Luckily "cheap" weighs more than "fast" in my accounting of things.

When I bought my bike it had an early version of this fitted

http://www.topyokes.com/comfort_kit/412

It wasn't well designed, the rear of the yoke fouled the tank so prevented full steering lock. It could be modded to fit by anyone who has the skills, needs the rear machining/filing away and maybe the posts modified. If anybody wants it they can have it for the price of postage.

Just been looking on Triumph partfinder and seems the tiger 955 doesn't have the same throttle mechanism but the 1050Tiger does so think 1050 Tiger throttle cables are a better bet.
Also checked clutch cables, Speed Triple and Daytona are same part number, no wonder it's tight with these high bars. Tiger cable when I get round to it.

Good sleuthing, I'm wondering if Tiger brake hoses would do as well. May be too long
