handlebar work

ive just installed some new, lower profile handlebars on my Virago XV 125, all installed and looking pretty sexy but as they dont have as much pullback as the stock bars i now have an excess of cables going to all controls. How easy is it to trim these cables down so it doesnt look like spaghetti junction anymore? Also due to the new angle of the bars the stock wing mirror mounts are now making the mirrors stand almost vertically. Is there any inserts you can thread in that will take the angle to a more asthetically pleasing angle or is it a matter of getting new mirrors?

unless you buy smaller cables then the only thing you can do is hide them, they should run under the tank so just pull them through or tie wrap them in place.

as to the mirrors you should be able to move them but if not then just get some that will go where u want.
