    Does anyone have a source for an extra long throttle cable? I am building a rat bike and I put some ape hangers on it. Out of curriosity I mounted the bars on my stretch and I like it!! But,.......the throttle cable is too short. Any help or ideas?

    Thanks for all the input. Correct me if I am wrong but.......doesnt the throttle cable need to be a certain measurement longer than the housing, with a very small lead stop on it? These are made for a specific grip and carb aren't they.
