ok, why is it that most all the drag bikes I see, have braided clutch & brake lines...but plastic throttle cables? hell , even mine is like that..Is it because of the pull or what? maybe I just haven't seem enough of them.. say for 39+ carbs
QUOTE (phatboyz @ Jun 24 2008, 04:18 PM) index.php?act=findpost&pid=3605I have a braided throttle cable and braided rear brake cable . But thats only because I purchased a terry cable and lsr cable and thats the way they came!LOL
This is what I needed to know. I wanted braided throttle cable, but it seems no one was reccommending them on 39 PWK's. so I thought maybe there was a problem with the pull on a braided, but it just didn't make sense... Thanks Phatboyz..
The 39mm PWK carbs require a cable with longer travel than the stock cable can provide. I use a braided Terry cable and have had no problems whatsoever with it. I also mod'd the stock thumb throttle to allow more travel on the thumb lever to ensure the carb slides retract fully at W.O.T.
I'm sure Motion Pro makes a similar version with the longer travel.
Just make sure your slides are opening fully and that the carbs are sync'd and you'll be ready to rock!
Im running into this problem now. I had a cable that was jerry rigged. I ran 35 Mikuni flat slides and they were fine. I now have 39 PWK's and the throttle cable is way to short. Which cables would be the best........
Part numbers is possible.
I want the a steel braided cable that will work perfect without having to modify anything...
