Help finding parts

Ok guys, you've been super helpful so far with helping me find parts, need some more help. I got a 1985 Kawasaki 700 LTD. It needs new push/pull throttle cables and while I'm at it I was just planning on doing all new handlebars, controls, and cables. The handlebars right now are 7/8 inch. Got any recommendations for new throttle handle, and light/run/off/start switches?

I would replace the handlebars first. With flatter bars you may need a different master cylinder & long stem mirrors.
Emgo makes a number of handlebar controls. carries a couple of them that are stock type & they might be able to get any of the others.

For shorter control cables I would try to get oem from a standard model, such as a 750E/R/L or KZ700. from the Kawasaki dealer or eebbaayy. may list the measurements for comparison.

I installed Goodridge brake lines & fittings from has Galfer brake lines which have the fittings crimped on. There's less chance of leaks, but I haven't had any problems having separate fittings. With removable fittings, you can swap out to a different angle if necessary for whatever reason.
