    I have just recently put stock clip-ons back on my 2000 VFR that was modified with off-road bars by a PO . I also got some new throttle cables. Because I bought it modified, I don't have a guideline to use for routing my new throttle cables around/through the forks. I was hoping someone could snap an overhead shot of the triple tree to help me out... please?

    It's not the clearest photo; the service manual has good diagrams, do you have that?

    IMG_0066.JPG That actually appears to be how I have it routed. For some reason, my ignition portion rubs the cables when I turn the bars to the right, increasing revs, and it also has slightly torn the outer portion of the cable. I was considering going behind the brake line, but now I'm not sure. Do yours rub at all? Is there some component that keeps them off the ignition? I have the Clymer - I'll take another look and see if I overlooked it.

    Here's the diagram from the service manual.

    All good now. Turns out I had it routed correctly, but it was rubbing because I didn't have the cables 'clipped' to the fork. A zip tie sorted it out completely. Evening ride was successful . Thanks again.

    Terry, or that VFRguy... could you please re-upload that diagram or PM it? I am struggling with the same issue and cannot figure the correct cable routing. The cables seem too short, even though I recently switched to 3inch extended ones. I also forgot what was the original routing.

    Photos aren't as useful or as clear the FSM's line drawings, and Clymer tells you nothing on the subject.
