so i am looking at the same thing. I have just started restoring a 70 cl450 and the cable is sticky and a bit rusty. i have torn apart and soaked in oil. ok getting off topic here i can get a cb350 cable for $14 what is the difference? i have had a few cb350's and even 1-2 cb450 in the past and i do not see the differences? i dont want to sink too much into till i check it all out.
