    how to make throttle cables longer

    so I need about an extra 4-6 inches added to my throttle cables. Besides Motion Pro is there an alternative that I do not know about? I put dirt bike bars on my 95 750 but they are tight.

    if you want to use the stock cables re route the cables between the rubber insulator between the tank and engine. That extra length of 4 inches is taken up from routing around the front stem of the steering head.

    Damn thats a shame considering what rubbersidedown said would have given you the extra length for free. HEY RUBBERSIDEDOWN whats up man!

    I tried what he said. It didn't work. I needed 6 inches. And rerouting his way really gives an.extra 2 inches. I had to order new cables and brake lines SL I had to measure and remeasure everything.
