Default Replacing the throttle cable.

OK so the engine started racing and I couldn't adjust the idle with the adjust screw so I thought I would tweak the cable length adjust on the top of the carb. Naturally it twisted right off. Fortunately I have another carb. Unfortunately the cable is way too long and I am wondering how to build a new cable of the right length. More specifically I am wondering if there is any sort of crimp on cable end that will fit in the little notch in the carb. They seem to be made from a shifter cable but I prefer to have some idea what I am asking for before I walk into the bike shop.

If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
