    Throttle cable replacement

    Does anyone have any suggestions for aftermarket throttle cables? I've added handlebar risers and need to extend the cables 6" on my 1300VTX-R

    I am in the same situation - just put on the Phatriser IIIX risers which were supposed to work with stock cables, but even after routing the cables behind the triple tree they were still a little too tight. So, I ended up buying the Barnett push/pull SS throttle cables as a set - I ended up getting +6 inches longer than OEM so that I could route the cables back to the front of the triple tree to avoid the cables rubbing against the tank in a hard right turn. I will be installing the new throttle cables this weekend. Didn't go with the Barnett brake cable due to the number of complaints I saw, but haven't seen many complaints regarding the Barnett throttle cables.
