Default Re: Replacing the throttle cable.

I had on my first kit a kings motor bike kit . Now Gas bike and kings seam to be the same company? On that kit the throttle finally broke. However one time in a pinch I used a red butt connector minus the insulation , then a yellow one minus the insulation. Both were trimmed to size crimp the red one on first . After that take and fray , bend over and down upon the first crimped piece. [red one] Last crimp the yellow one on top of that. viola dun. On my old Kings throttle there was just enough room inside for this. My new billet aluminum one doest have the room inside. This gives you a chance to use a bike dérailleur cable cut to size. You still have to genitally trim the ball end on that to size on a grinding wheel. Hope that helps someone?
Still gotta have a since of humor.
