Default Re: Shorten Cables?

Buy a cable cutter at bicycle shop. It will cut cables and cable housings.
The clutch cable is no problem. The throttle cable has non-bicycle cable ends so it will require more thought.
I solved that by using an old mountain bike thumb shifter for the throttle. I used the original cable end in the carb and trimmed the cable on the thumb throttle end.
