VX Project Bikes / Re: Extension for throttle, choke and clutch cable

the bar look spretty close to standard, Id giver a go.  Theres a bit of wiggle room for height and setback, in the stock cables. 

If you and something extreme, Motion Pro makes custom OEM style cables.

Looks higher than the standard euro to me.
Maybe the US bikes have longer cables.

It is a custom handlebar, but nothing to extreme.

Don't think extending is a possibility, or you would have to be able to make your own from a universal repair kit.
Do you want to replace the handle bar with a standard euro one?

VX Project Bikes / Extension for throttle, choke and clutch cable

Hi all,

I would like to put a higher handlebar on my VX. The handlebar that is on it now is very low. A previous owner put it on. That said, the cables look very short, even for this low handlebar.

This means I need to extend all the cables that go to it. However, I can't find any on the web and since the VX has (I think) a very dedicated design with the cable splitters and all, I don't know were to look for to do extend the present ones.

Anyone of you know how to deal with this? Is it possible to put on VS800 cables? They are available on longer lengths and since the VX and VS have so much in common I think this might be an option.

Many thanks in advance.

Wessel

Hi all,
Well, it's a sad day at The Gilmore Estate---after owning 8 VX800s over the last 25 years, I just sold my very last one.  A "Plum Crazy Purple" 1992 with 41,xxx miles & running perfectly.  Anyway---The buyer was on a tight budget and didn't have the extra cash for all of my parts & accessories, so I'll offer them on this site first.  I want to sell everything as a package deal.  The Ventura mounting system and aftermarket seat alone are worth more than I'm asking for the entire conglomeration!
Here's my ad:

Lots of Suzuki VX800 parts & accessories for sale $395 FIRM for all
I don’t own any VX800’s anymore, so all of my extra stuff is for sale
I want to sell all of the spares as a "package deal".   My wife and I have owned 6 over the years.  The first one I bought new in 1991, the next 3 friends sweet-talked me into selling to them, and two went to strangers---including a collector in Auckland, New Zealand!  Spares include (I had a lot of spares since I & friends traveled on the bikes and didn't want to find ourselves stranded a 1,000 miles from home---the good thing about having all of this is that we never needed any of it!):
Saddleman(?) or Travelcade(?)(?) aftermarket seat (very comfortable---can't find an ID label on it, though)
New-in-box (NIB---also means in original packaging if not boxed)
 Rectifier/Regulator module PLUS a used one that's supposed to be good but I never had a reason to install it to find out.
Dyna coils and Dyna plug wires NIB
Service manual
NIB Stator
Left & right-side engine cases & gasket
Rear drive seal NIB
Fuel pump NIB and fuel petcock NIB and fuel pump repair kit NIB
Clutch cable NIB
Steering head bearings NIB
All three wheel bearings & seals NIB
Spare rear turn signals
Stock sub-frame parts;   Exhaust gaskets NIB
Brake pads NIB
(2) sets of stock fork springs & one set of stock shocks
(2) expensive iridium spark plugs NIB There's other misc. stuff---but I'm tired of typing...  That’s a lot of spares and they cost a bunch of $$$.  $395 takes everything (Buyer responsible for shipping costs and I’ll pack it up for you and take it to UPS or USPS)    joe.gilmore1@gmail.com
