Thread: Custom Cables

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Custom Cables

    2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Classic:

    I added 2" risers to my handlebars and need to get a longer clutch cable. Kawasaki and other metric part sellers tell me this is not stock and I need to have it custom made. Does anyone know of a shop that makes custom cables here in Ocala? I prefer black so I don't have to replace all my cables. I appreciate any help you can offer. --- RD

    This may sound overly simple, but maybe some bigger Kawasaki models have slightly longer cables. As big as the top of the line model is, it's got to have larger dimensions. Many parts interchange and you could probably check the parts #'s to see which ones might work. For what it's worth.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm not up on the local Kawasaki after market dealers off hand, but I'll ask around.

    Welcome to the Forum RD. I think the idea of finding a cable from different bike might be the way to go. I do not know what the ends one your cable looks like but I would not be surprised to see them match a cable from a different bike. Can you post a picture of the two ends? With that we might be able to steer you in the right direction.

    I will post pictures of the cable and front end of my bike later today. Thanks for the responses so far!

    Welcome Aboard.
    Motion Pro will make you any length cables that you may need. A lot of drag racers use them and you will see the name all over the place at the AHDRA races.
