Extension for throttle, choke and clutch cable
« on: November 27, 2017, 07:07:37 AM »
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

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?

It is a custom handlebar, but nothing to extreme.

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

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.
must.
go.                             My CJD is clearing up.
