    There are no shorter cables I'm aware of, very few if any sources for longer also. Here's some sources for pieces to make your own
    Flanders Cable Part Search

    and there are video's to be found thru Google

    Thanks for the info. That's a little shocking to learn that you generally can't get shorter cables (or longer) unless you make your own. Oh, boy, snag after snag...

    The aftermarket world ignored these models almost completely.

    I guess I only need the pull cable shortened as my throttle doesn't snap back after releasing it.

    I'm having the exact same issue right now. It's my throttle and brake line. Did you ever get to a solution?

    Since you have simply changed out the CM pullback bars, wouldn't the shorter throttle cables from a CB400T (which were for shorter, straighter bars) work?

    I ended up getting short 2 into 1 throttle cable from dimecitycicles. I didn't the install last week and it turned out great.

    I changed my handle bars out with old bars off of a Suzuki titan 500 when I first got it, and the cables were fine. However, I had a cable break not long ago and replaced both the pull and push cables with new ones from motion pro. I then had the same problem you have until I loosened up the tension and gave the throttle a bit of free play. That fixed it. Since the cable casings are hooked to your carbs, it really shouldnt matter if cable are a little long unless they are kinked somewhere, but will cause stuff to bind if you have the actual cables (not the casing) adjusted too short.
