Street Cup Owners! Enough cable to change bars?

I sat on a used Street Cup (going to ride it today) and like it but I think the lowered handlebar setup is going to cause me wrist pain if I'm leaning forward much. I thought I could just replace the bars with something a littlebit higher, but it doesn't look like there is much slack in those cables. Has anyone here tried to raise the bars (so to speak) or investigated how much slack there is in those lines?

Several of us have switched to the Street Twin handlebars. The clutch cable needs to be changed but the brake hose and electrical have enough slack. The bar clamps need changed as well since the Street Cup bars are 1" at the center vs the Street Twin at 7/8". It was about $250 to make the change using Triumph parts IIRC.

Here's mine in a couple of configurations. Can't take more as I traded in the bike last month. I did keep the bars and twin seat to sell separately though.

Great looking bike. Thanks.

Well, heck, I guess since the go and stop bits are all the same and only the position/seat/colors change I should just look for a Street Twin....

Yeah, the differences are small. The street cup has a little quicker steering due to longer rear shocks, a tachometer and a useless flatscreen. The street twin has lower foot pegs, a lower twin seat and more color choices. Both fun bikes.

Has anyone tried the Speed Twin, or a Speed Triple bar on the Street Cup?

I have the stock "ACE" setup it came with, and it makes my neck hurt on longer rides... I also have the Street Twin bar and riser kit, and that is comfortable, but it a bit high for aggressive riding for me... So I guess I am wanting more of a "goldilocks" bar, somewhere in between... The stock ACE setup uses the thicker diameter center of the tapered bars used on other bikes... I feel like a Speed Twin bar might be ideal... Higher and a little back from the ace bars, but not too relaxed like the Street Twin setup.

Thoughts?
