Post 696 throttle cable is too short

After changing the handlebar the throttle cable is about 1 inch shorter, now does anyone know if the 796 or 1100 throttle cable is longer then the 696?

Thanks

That's why the DP raised bar kit comes with new cables and lines. (and why it's $350)

It's a pretty standard cable, if you yank it off and measure it, you should be able to get one on the net cheap.

I have the same issue after installing Rizoma handlebar and high bar extension. (i.e., bike revs up when hard turning left as cable is too short and is being pinched when turning). Anyone knows how long is the original 2009 696 throttle cable and where I may be able to find one that is one inch longer?

Thanks!

I installed a 1 1/2" handlebar riser kit from eBay with the stock bars. All cables, wires and brake lines got tight but only real problem was at full left lock. Solved it by moving the throttle twist grip in @ 1/4". First solution was to move out fork lock bolt but I didn't like what it did to my turning radius.

I fixed my problem with www.motionpro.com I send them my cable and they made me a new one, 2 inch longer. Give them a call first. Their work is top notch.

I have a Monster 795. I live in the Philippines so getting Rizoma parts takes time. I got a 29-22mm Rizoma handlebar (MA008) with 140mm height, then it turns out it won't fit the stock handlebar holders, so I ordered a Rizoma handlebar adapter (AZ403B) with 60mm height. The handlebars feel great but since the bars are much higher, the controls controls hit the tank when you steer, so the technician had to adjust the stoppers and turning radius is narrower. Another thing is the throttle cable became too short, I need an inch longer throttle cable to which I still dont know where to get them. In the meantime, I made adjustments and the throttle cable is sticking outside the fork like a sore thumb. ANy suggestions?

Thanks for info. Will try them out. But do I really have to send my old throttle cable? In doing so, that would render my bike "useless" can I just order an inch longer cable than the stock? Whatever the length is.

Yes they need your cable to make it exactly, what I did I bought a new cable and send it to them, I suggest make it 2 inch longer better have a little extra cable.
