Replacement throttle cable
 
1998 FE400 with a Mikuni flat slide carb. What throttle cable do I buy?

it'll have to be one that is on the shelf. send me the total length, the total outer cable length and the size of the nipple on the end at the carb?

Housing length is 84 cm including the threaded ends

let me have a photo of the other end as well please..at the nipple? it's nice to see the nipple near the thread in the same photo.

also, are you happy with the nipple shown that goes in the Mikuni because the Mikuni might have wanted another design and we can get it sorted while we are here?

so the throttle housing end will have a barrel nipple probably?

i had a '98 with both the mikuni and dellorto and don't remember having to change cables.

Taffy February 22nd, 2017 01:31 AM

well if true then we have one1 I was just trying to be 100% sure!

The carb nipple seemed very secure when I disassembled it. The throttle side has the typical barrel type end.

taffy, it was the 400 you rode at moab. i think it had the mikuni on it then??

Taffy February 22nd, 2017 12:56 PM

yep and you said it didn't run right then! or was that the other one? hell, I've forgotten! I had a good time on it though!!!

I remember throwing Coronaberg's bike at the scenery on that slick rock. at 6' 8" I doubt he ever dropped it.

So where do I buy a throttle cable? I can't find any websites that list my bike in their OEM parts.
