    Throttle cable is nothing special, you can custom make your own. Just get a quality cable from a bike shop with one end that will fit your throttle. To make the ball on the carb end just wrap a small solid wire (like telephone wire) around the cable at the position you want the ball, then solder it in place with regular electronic solder iron and solder leaving a ball about the size of the original ball end. You can manipulate the ball size with heat or trim/sand it with tools. It's super easy, I've done a few and never had a failure...
    I'm not sure what Sick Bikes is selling as CNS throttle, I know the throttle I got with my kit for the CNS carb was plastic crap. (Though everything I have ever purchased from SickBikeParts.com has been high quality) I bought an all metal minibike throttle with replaceable grips and have been really happy with that. Though I did have to rig up a stand alone kill switch since the minibike throttle doesn't have any switches.

    I use them on all my bikes, had a couple issues but got them resolved. Can't beat the price and you get the cable too.
