Why do you need a longer brake line? I just put some risers on mine (about 1.5") and there's plenty of brake line slack. The clutch and choke cables took a little re-arranging to work, but all is well now.

Now I need to look up the choke cable spec and re-adjust it. I just eye-balled it so I could ride into town yesterday morning.
I'd agree, I have 2" rox risers and a CR high bend bar with cyrca hand guards. I did add a longer clutch cable because when the bars were at full right hand lock I'd lose and clutch play. Everything else seemed to reach fine with a little different rerouting. I also added a XR400 oil cooler which made me change some of the cable routing and could be why I needed a longer clutch cable.
