Street 750 Handlebar ?

Anyone else find the street 750 handlebar too ... plain?
I want to change these to dragbar to give it a proper low-profile cafe-racer look, along with flipped bar-end mirrors (
Amazon.com: Gear Gremlin GG301B Black Mini Bar End Mirror: Automotive Amazon.com: Gear Gremlin GG301B Black Mini Bar End Mirror: Automotive
).

The tech guy at Bengal HD said the sportster dragbar (1" OD) will not fit the street 750 and the clutch cable as well as controls housing will require changing.
Can anyone tell me the diameter of the stock handlebar, perhaps from the manual?

Also I am kind of a newbie when it comes to DIY, so why would the cables need changing when the dragbar is supposed to be lower than the stock handlebar? The guy ain't too happy about trying to install the aftermarket mirrors either

I always did find it to be a bit too plain but it didn't bother me too much, definitely something worth looking into to change or modify

Just measure the diameter with an outide micrometer.

The stock handlebar is supposed to be 7/8" according to a review I read.
I think that as long as the cables physically reach the new handlebar, there is no reason to require swapping them. But I have never changed a handlebar myself.

Black 7/8 drag bars are readily available from numerous companies/suppliers,
or even on Ebay. Ours will be here this afternoon.

Handlebars can definitely be improved.
@badguppy : Curious to see how the flipped bar end mirrors would look on the street 750. Btw any idea how much the Harley dealers are charging for such mirrors? (for the parts and installation of it)
