Unhappy New bike engine kit help!!

So I just recently received my engine kit and I've been out in my garage installing it to my bike for a couple hours now. I'm nearing completion and I'm excited to test it out, but i've ran into a problem... Right now I'm trying to install the throttle cable to the carburetor (You know, with the pin and spring and all that jazz) but I think my throttle cable is to short... In order for me to get the end of the cable locked into the pin hole thing, I have to really really squeeze the spring closed to let the cable through enough to lock in the other end. I don't believe i'm supposed to be squeezing this spring just to lock the cable into the hole. I took a picture here of what I'm talking about. You can see that the spring extends past the tip of the cable. I also included pictures of what my throttle looks like on the handle bars. Please someone help!!!

Ok nevermind with the pictures. I can't post them because i'm a noob here. Anyways, if you want a look at them send me a message and i'll send you the Flickr links!!
Thanks again
