175 cc throttle cable length
« on: October 25, 2013, 01:40:56 PM »
Does anyone know how far out (in mm) the throttle cable should protrude from the grey sleeve? I writing about the cables from the carbs. to the housing that connects all 3 cables (1 for each carbs and 1 for the oil) to the one cable that goes to the handlebars.
  I have attached a picture of two of these cables. I am assuming that the shorter one is for the choke cable and the slightly longer one is for the throttle but it doesn't seen to fit. I have looked into buying a new set but I can't find any, so I guess I'll have to have them made up.

Did you take the cables apart at the splitter? The choke only has two cables from the splitter and you are right about how the throttle cables come out and go to. If that's a pic of the throttle cables then the longer one is for the oil pump.

I had come across some cables that I have mixed and matched in order to make one good one. So, yes these were all disassembled. If I could get the correct lengths of the cables that go from the carbs. to the splitter and the third cable that goes from the oil pump to the splitter I can have a set made up but, with out those correct measurements I'm stuck.

I think I have a well used one somewhere, I'll look tomorrow and measure it.

Measured a spare NOS cable that I have. I got 2 inches for both throttles and 5 inches for the oil pump cable and if you didn't know there is an adjuster on the oil cable also. Those measurements might be give or take 1/32 off I didn't have a proper tape measure.
