raising bars: clutch and decomp cable length problems?

Post  SFXR on Wed Feb 17, 2010 12:04 am

Hey y'all,

I'm raising the bars a lot. Motion pro sells cables 3" longer than stock, but I can't find anyone who makes clutch and decomp cables 3" longer as well. Anyone have this problem? Is there another bike's parts that fit?

Thanks!

I recently fitted a Mikuni carb and had to get new throttle cables made for higher bars.
Boats need a lot of cables made up so it could be worth asking local boat yards for cable makers. The other alternative is cable making kits and making one up yourself.

I managed to use the standard clutch and decomp cable by carefully rerouting it. Be sure the decomnp cable does not go tight on full lock as it cuts the engine.

I put 2 in risers and a set of Renthal hi bars on and rerouted the stock cables works fine.XX

No room with the big old Acrebis 6.3 Gallon tank. His was pulling the compression cable tight and causing the bike to stall. A real pain in the butt when you had to turn around in a tight spot.

You could move your carb closer to the front of the bike....thus creating more slack Frustrated or you could ignore my posts...sadly there is no block facility on here razz

It's always easier to bulshit around then actually help someone listen up

There are some from xronly.com:
http://www.xrsonly.com/xrs-only-extended-throttle-cable-honda-xr650r-00-07-2-inches-pull
Bit expensive for all of them, so will keep looking for alternatives.

This is where in the old days you could take your old cables into a dealership and go through their stock and find a set which are longer.....hard work nowadays mad as heck

Somebody clearly missed my mentioning of

M O T I O N - P R O

in the US, they'll make ANY cable - so, for those wanting to build a stretched chopper out of the Pig..... contact them!
I did too, for 3"-longer cables - which work superb?
