A lot of companies will do custom steel braided brake lines. Perhaps measure out what you need and there's plenty of companies that make brake lines.

Custom lines all around would be the best answer... you would then need to know how much longer, everything needs to be.

If the Fatboy bars are 0.5 meters wider, and 20 cm taller, the new lines would all have to be 0.52 (or more) longer to reach the same place, with the correct amount of slack.

You could get lucky and be able to use the lines from a sport touring rig, in place of your SS setup.... Something like a ZX14 would have wider, taller bars, so all of the control lines would have to be longer to accommodate that. The push/pull throttle cable is probably the hardest one to match; I don't think I would be particular as to brand for a source for that... a Dual sport/touring bike would have very wide and tall bars and may give you enough 'reach' to use OEM parts instead of custom.....

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Hey Buddy, I run custom Core Moto brake lines on my build. I haven't got them installed yet, so I can't tell you how they are. But they look awesome. Some of the guys on here have it installed too.
