correct length cables 650ss concentrics

Posted by tom_steele at March 15. 2017
Hi everyone got amal 930 twin concentrics on my 650ss had a cable of rgm that was no good

Issue is with the cable fitted there is no free play and it's lifting the throttle slides about 1/4 inch of the stop screws with everything set to minimum

Brand new Doherty twist grip of Andover Norton the cables I've got both measure up from junction box to grip 80 mm of wire
Not measured the other bits as they are still on the carbs

Anyone had any success getting twin carb concentric cables ? For the 650ss or atlas  (same fitment) from anywhere
I had a look at Venhill but they don't know themselves which ones fit for the concentrics and Andover don't do them
Got Vincent style flat bars on

Super appreciate any advice I'd make my own but really just want to get something of the shelf time wise as i need to use it to go to work on

If there is 3/8 inch spare length all you need to do is cut off 3/8" from both the outers   or from the single cable before the junction using a pair of sharp  side cutters ,no soldering required. Bit fiddly but doable.10 minuit job Where are you based?
