Yep your throttle cable is bent way too much that will make the reving issue, also your starter probably doesn't work cause the bars are painted and Yamaha grounds controls on the bars, sand paint off under the controls and that should fix it.  your cable needs to gently arc, tight curves are a no no.

You will have to disconect the throttle and likely clutch cable and find a new route for them. the 2 red circles are real bad bends for the throttle.  Also the loop on your clutch cable is too tight as well

not really, I do all my own stuff, make mistakes, learn, fix, move on LOL. I would look into if there were other models of the bike that came with lower bars from the factory and get the cables for that bike, or Motion Pro can make up cables.  Really not hard to re-route the current, just make gentle arcs, not tight turns.  I used the full length cables on my GL but put much lower bars what I did was make the cables go out away from the bars then curved them back towards the frame and crossed them over to the opposite side they were originally on and that made the difference. If I get the chance I will take a pic to show you what I mean.

Don't do thaaaaaaaat, it's easy. You've already done most of the hard work. All you have to do is disconnect some cables and reroute them, slide the right controls off a bit and sand where they contact the bars.

Besides, shops are too expensive

Hahaha that's a way to do it! I just wish I had more tools and a shop to learn in lol and alright I'll try that. All of this stuff is like another language right now I'm gonna try to get a friend of mine to help as well! Thanks again for the help man I really appreciate it. I'll keep you updated about the progress too!
