There are posts on her about remaking the ends, So you could cut the cable, Remove it, cut the sheath, then put a new end on (need to cut sheath more to leave enough inner cable to cast a new end on, But stock throttle cables are usally too long anyway)

On the plus side, if you make it way to long as I did, your throttle grip is just loose for a little bit of the twist, You won't lose WOT (Wide open Throttle).

What end does your throttle brake at? Maybe you should make a new thread.
This Noobie thanks you for the information...My cable IS waaay TOO long and i am anxiously awaiting my High-Tech throttle from sick bikes ! I think i can perform the tasks you recommend and re-install the cable end bushing with industry's FINEST FIX-IT-STUFF GOOP rubber sealant/glue

Got my 1" spring fork from the west coast yesterday. my weekend's gonna be busy fussing with the bike

Thanks all!
