Problems fitting Mikuni Carb

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm having real problems trying to fit the throttle cables onto the carb. In the UK, we only get supplied the carb not the cables too. The standard cables are both too long, plus both screw adjusters on the cables will not fit properly into the housing attached to the carb.

Any body in the UK know where to get the shorter cables, or how to make the stock ones fit?

Thanks,

The stock cables will not fit. The cables that go with the Carb are tight. XRs only has them but they are in California. Good Luck !

That is so stupid, to supply the carb but not the cables that they "know" are going to have to be replaced. Bummer!

Do you not have specialty shops there that custom make cables? Ask around at the bike shops and their mechanics or at some of the local biker hangouts.

Hope you can find a solution.

Hi,

Thanks for that. Only place to get them is XR's only so it looks like the bike will stay in a sorry state in the garage till then.

Cheers,
