ShakerNorm, they're listed with the accessories for the Bolt on the Yamaha website (braided stainless versus black).  If you put the same part numbers in on Partszilla, they're a bit less on that site. 
Heres the clutch: https://www.shopyamaha.com/product/details/extended-length-braided-stainless-steel-control-ca?b=Sport+Heritage+Accessories&d=47&f=2020|41&ls=yamaha-motor-company ;
The throttle cable:https://www.shopyamaha.com/product/details/extended-length-braided-stainless-steel-control-ca?b=Sport+Heritage+Accessories&d=47&f=2020|41&ls=yamaha-motor-company ;
And the brake line: https://www.shopyamaha.com/product/details/extended-length-braided-stainless-steel-brake-line?dealernumber=&ri=true
I attached pics as well.  Why Yamaha does not specify the length difference from stock is beyond me.  It does specify they work on the tall Yamaha bars, but those are notably absent from the listed accessories for the Bolt.  As far as getting extra length out of the existing lines, I looked at mine and they seem maxed out with the stock bars, although I could see getting a couple inches on the brake line by disconnecting that retainer on the fork.
Again, any Bolters in the Phoenix area, my offer for beer to see the bars stands... ;D

The Yamaha tall bars are 3.3" taller than stock.

Thanks, Dr M.....  I seem to remember that someone had mentioned that there was extra length under the tank somewhere.....  Unwrapping the wiring could be a hassle, but I think I know where I can get some black wire-wrap like we use on aircraft.

Thanks, Wolf - although I may go aftermarket depending on price/quality.  I'd also like to have all black if I can.
