Extended cables.

Who has got, or knows where to get a set of 10' extended cables? There are some advertised on Ebay in the US but hoping to get some locally.
I've fitted a set of 12" bars onto my 750 Honda so need a clutch cable as well as the push and pull cables for the throttle.

Cheers.

Most bike shops should have bulk cable, inner and outer, plus fittings.

If not, I can supply you with inner and outer cables and fittings. I've never felt the need for the return throttle cable.

You'll need a little gas torch to melt the solder to fix the ends. If I haven't put a post on soldering cables on the Fits'nBits forum, I'll get something up.

Thanks Prof. I did wonder the need for the return cable, the carb springs seem well enough to return to idle. Being able to get rid of one cable would be a good step toward de-cluttering the front of the bike.
I'll take your advise and see what cables I can get locally and make my own, failing that I'll put in an order.

I've ridden Prof's shovel, there is no return spring.!!! 1970's cruise control. :D
