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

Taffy February 5th, 2017 10:52 AM

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?

Taffy

Cable length 101 cm including the nipples
Housing length is 84 cm including the threaded ends
Carb side nipple is 5mm by 2.5mm

Attached pictures of each end as well

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 12:31 AM

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

bholmes February 22nd, 2017 05:05 AM

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

ned37 February 22nd, 2017 06:28 AM

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

Taffy February 22nd, 2017 11:56 AM

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.

Taffy

bholmes February 22nd, 2017 01:25 PM

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

Taffy February 23rd, 2017 12:48 AM

go to our web site and put in 100431. we just found an incorrect description (year was one out) and photo (big slap!). by the time you see this they will be done....

Taffy

bholmes February 23rd, 2017 05:52 PM

Purchased! Thanks again for the help!

Taffy February 23rd, 2017 11:48 PM

you're welcome, everytime i look at our web shop i see things wrong sir but I only have one pair of hands!

I told my sister who runs a brothel that if i had another pair of hands I could open up another shop in cambridge. she said, if she had another pair of legs she could open up in cambridge too!

LOL!!!!

What's your experience with shipping times? How long to get here?

Taffy March 2nd, 2017 11:53 PM

sometimes our monday parcels get to USA customers by the Friday but usually it is a calender week.

Taffy

bholmes March 14th, 2017 08:55 AM

It's been 10 business days and I haven't gotten it yet. Any way to track it? I replied to the order confirmation email a while back but no reply.

Taffy March 15th, 2017 01:59 AM

hello

I just looked up my postage records and it was posted on Monday 27th Feb.
Please let me know when you recieve . I would give it a little more time it obviously has gone walkies. International mail isnt classed as lost until 30 days ...which is a bugger. It has been 13 working days if we include today and postage time is 7-10 working days for worldwide post.

bholmes March 25th, 2017 09:38 PM

Received it in the mail today. Cable length is good but the threads at the handle side are the wrong size. I have the electric start if that makes a difference and led to the wrong part being recommended.

Taffy March 26th, 2017 12:40 AM

can you give me the number off the front of the package first?

second, tell me whether it fell in or the thread was too big? can't be the pitch so....
there are two basic dell orto throttles. the first has a wheel on top which you can see as a sillhouette on the top and a tapered screw in it. it has an enormous thread and an adjustment wheel.

we will get it right.

so you have electric start 400 and I think you've said the year somewhere right?

There's the throttle housing for reference. The thread is too big.

Taffy March 26th, 2017 11:39 AM

OK, I'm on it! we just got those throttle housings and Julia didn't check that a cable would fit but because we have another one here we should sort it quickly. can you send it back to us? we can pay your postage but please send it via USPS and slow and cheap.

regards

hello

julia here .. we are going to sort this just bare with us.. we have to measure the thread and find out if our supplier has them or has to make them or have them made... we are gonig to "play" around in the workshop and test a few things to see if it works.
my question to you is does the cable fit into the carb ?
the only thing wrong with the cable is the thread size? is this correct

many thanks
julia

Sorry I haven't replied, but life finally slowed down recently. The cable you sent is perfect except for the threads at the handlebar end. I went to a local hardware store to confirm the thread size. I need a throttle cable with M8 x 1.25 thread. You sent one with M10 x 1.25 thread. Let me know how to get reimbursed for shipping this cable back to you.

Hello

If you are happy with the total length of the cable
if you are happy with the excess of wire out of the cable
if you are happy with the nipple and adjustment to fit the mikuni
if you're happy with the barrel nipple at the throttle end

....then I would be sorely tempted to change the throttle assembly to a Domino from 99-03
or
to file all the thread away and get down to 8mm diameter and put a tap on it.

but your problem is at the HANDLEBAR end and not the carb end which is where we thought you'd have trouble!

ho-hum!!!!!

All of the above are true. The barrel at the handlebar end may be too large to fit an 8mm die over it, and it is definitely too large to fit a new 8 mm nut over it. If it were fashioned with a gap or split (similar to a cable pull brake on a mountain bike) then it could slide over the cable below the barrel.

Taffy June 12th, 2017 05:26 AM

then get a domino throttle for it which was the OEM item anyway!

you can take a little off the corners off the barrel nipple to make it all work.

Taffy

bholmes June 22nd, 2017 03:41 PM

Tell me where I can find the domino throttle cable

VOR165 June 22nd, 2017 07:59 PM

He said throttle, not cable.

The cable you received is the correct one, if your bike is 100% original. The problem is you do not have the original throttle housing, i.e., the twist grip, that came on the bike from the factory.

The throttle from an 08 KTM 200 xc-w should be the same as the original domino throttle that came on your bike from the factory. Its $47 from Rocky Mtn Atv.

bholmes June 23rd, 2017 09:10 PM

I have a domino throttle on it, but it's not the oem based on the parts catalog, so I'm lost as far as what to do now. I'm likely to make another $50 purchase that leaves me still without a working throttle.

bholmes June 23rd, 2017 09:20 PM

I can't find the 99-03 cable you mentioned, either.

bholmes July 15th, 2017 11:44 AM

Ended up taking it to a local machine shop, cost $10 to rethread it down to 8mm diameter. Works like a charm.

good thinking Batman!!!

Julia and I are perplexed as to why it happened. lack of info and lots of fog mean we give up!
