  1. 72 CB350 Throttle cable has too much slack

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Just recently got my engine and carbs back in the frame and I attempted to get the throttle cable hooked up and synced. When I got it installed on both ends, the new throttle tube has over 1/8th of a turn worth of slack on the cable. The Y'ed cables both pull at the same time when I twist the...
  2. Lower Risers - shorten cables?

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Hey everyone, I recently lowered my handlebars from the roughly 4-5 inch risers to what I believe are 1 inch risers. The bars are already drilled for routing the cables and locking the assemblies in. However, it seems that since I put the new bars on the clutch takes longer to engage, in other...
  3. Help! Cant Remove Carburetor Top From Throttle Cable.

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I am replacing the old carburetor on my 1978 CM185t with a new one. The cap/top from the old carburetor is stuck on the throttle cable and I cannot see a way to remove it without cutting and replacing the cable.

  5. CL175 cables

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I am having the toughest time trying to find all of the cables to fit on my 1972 Cl175. I can find the throttle cable in grey, but that's about all I can find. I just want all the cables to be the same color so I was holding off on the throttle cable for now. Do these cables interchange with any...

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I feel as if this is immensely over complicated, so my apologies in advance if this seems overly simple to you guys... DOES..OR DOES NOT...a hydraulic/disk break system have a cable that connects the lever to the break!? During a few repairs 3 months ago my local mechanic said he tightened my...
  7. CB450 K1 Speedometer Cable

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Hey everyone, So I've been slugging ahead on my CB450 K1 project. It's a year 1969, with drum brakes in the front and rear. I'm missing the speedometer cable, and I've been having a dreadfully hard time finding one. Does anyone have any ideas on where I could find a compatible speedo cable...
