Extended cables for risers?

This must be a common issue, but new to me. I want to put some 3-inch risers on my Bonneville SE handlebars so I can sit a little more upright. Does anyone know of an extended control and electrical cable kit to accommodate the higher bars. I have scoured the web and found nada. Also, is handling different with risers such as these as opposed to higher bars? I welcome any and all thoughts on the subject.

Norman Hyde do a kit of Throttle cables -- Clutch cable - front brake hose - this is to suit their western bars - the cables and hose are 3 inches longer than standard - this may be enough for your needs - i fitted them to my 2003 Bonnie - didnt need to mod the wiring as there is enough slack - the longer cables are a Triumph part from another model - I have the part numbers if you want them

Check out GenMar bar risers - no cable changes necessary and they really provide an upright riding position.

It is possible to reroute the throttle cables round the other side of the headstock to give "more length" if needed
