You can also get a whole new (nice) throttle assembly from Sick Bike Parts - they come 35" or 41" or 47"
Which end is soldered on. It looks like the end at the throttle control is just lead and it will melt. I haven't looked at the end in the carb. Back when I worked in a motorcycle shop we used to solder a lot of cables for custom bikes. If these are the same it wont be a problem.
