'82 Honda Urban Express - HELP!

Postby Moosemeat » Wed Mar 30, 2011 4:37 pm

Can anyone tell me where to find a replacement throttle cable for this thing?

Been all over the net searching; I've found several on eBay listed as being for "pitbikes 50 cc Chinese ", and similar that look like they've got the right ends, etc.

Anybody know if these will work?

All input appreciated..................

you can buy a cable and shorten it fairly easily . the factory ends maybe swagged on but most ends are solder on types, brass balls,barrels or tubes.
sometimes the inner cable end is flared but soldered to the ball, just heat & pull with some pliers and you might be able to re use it .
or the cables can be made from parts. i have bulk inner & outer cable
plus most ends.
if you do alter the stock length outer cable make sure you file
down the bur from cutting on the inside so the inner cable does
not abrade and get cut .
