what throttle cable length to get?

I'm fixing up an XR50.  I'm told it was an 2003 model that someone put in a slightly larger frame.  Its only about 4 inches longer than my stock 02 bike.  The throttle cable is damaged and doesnt move freely, but I think its also too short for the longer frame which could be adding to the friction.  I cant find info on the stock cable length anywhere.  I want to order a new cable that maybe 2 inches longer than stock, but not sure what to get.  The screws in the throttle housing are stripped as well, so I havent been able to get the existing cable free yet to measure.  I'd like to get parts ordered while I fight with the housing.  Anyone have an idea of what size to get?
