  • Throttle cables

    Any suggestions where to buy black throttle and clutch cables? Thanks
    I have heard that some are running with only one throttle cable? How does that work, what are the pro's and con's?

        TimB he is here and on the FB page. If they are stock length just go to the dealership. Rockriver powersports is our sponsor of this site. Contact them.

          Dave, I didn't think they would have them in black?

        +1 for Tim B at Metric Magic. He can make them any length you wish.

          There is a push/pull system for the throttle cables, but only one, the pull cable, is necessary. The push cable is 'insurance' to protect Yami from liability. FWIW, I have removed the push cables to 'clean up' my bikes. The earlier R*s used black cables, and later models used a stainless steel covering. Someone else can state what model year that changed.

          You can try Tim B., but he has made it clear to me, concerning a much earlier retail purchase I made from someone else that he said he knew, that the customer is not always right, and that customer satisfaction is not at the top of his business priorities.I had a problem with a seller, he said he knew, and I wanted to return a purchase... which the seller refused to do. Tim B. said he knew the guy and gave me absolute hell on the previous RSC site over it. I'll probably catch it again... But, that is the absolute truth, and I truly could not care less at this point. You may, or you may not, find out for yourself, but I'd only buy from someone else, other than Tim B.

          Before you would buy, I'd ask him outright if he guaranteed your satisfaction, and would either return your purchase price, or would replace the product you bought, with the one you wanted, should you find out that what you bought was not correct. I'm just sayin'.

          Others are going to say they had a good buying experience with Tim B., and I would never deny them that... But, I would ask the same people if they were either dissatisfied with, or had purchased the wrong item unknowingly, and was treated with a respect, courtesy and satisfaction that would bring them back again.

          I didn't have my problem with Tim B., but rather, with another retailer he claimed that he personally knew, and he gave me holy heck about it.... What follows from my post will likely be 'enjoyable' entertainment for some, but I write this to be of a warning to others, should they ever be in need of it.

          Ask for a satisfaction guarantee, or a replacement, if not satisfied, or if an error was made on your part or his. If, he agrees to all that... NP! But, after my experience with the exchange Tim B. and I had on the previous RSC site, I vowed I'd never buy from him anything ever! And, my purchase experience wasn't even with him in the very first place!!!

            Come to find out my bike originally came with black cables but the PO obviously changed them. Hard to believe I priced OEM cables they were $57 a piece I can buy the Barnett's for $45 a piece. Guess I'm going with Barnett's! Thanks for the help!

              TimB is deeply involved in the Facebook page and I think last week he said f Amazon so he's definitely out there way out not that I'm not way out there too but if I was selling s*** you gotta take care bidness. Those people on Facebook exhibit behaviors that demonstrate poor Parenting. Sadly US is heading downhill culturally.
