Throttle cable
Fandango - 19/3/17 at 03:32 PM

Hi all.

I need a throttle cable for my new pedal box install.

I am running R1 carbs, so need the appropriate bike carb shaped nipple.

Can`t seem to see anything suitable on ebay, can anyone here suggest a supplier for this?

Hi. I fitted R1 carbs to my Zetec. You will need to fit some kind of guide tube to take the cable thru 90 degrees, and down to the throttle shaft attachment wheel.

Check out this - Bike Carb or Throttle Body Conversion Throttle Cable Kit, Universal

Sorry - haven't learnt how to do those short linkys.

If you need a long cable the old style vespa scooters had them due to the engine being behind you, they were dirt cheap as well.
