To fit the tube. It's going on a virago, but I've converted to a single carb. It's a keihin screamin' eagle butterfly carb.

On my rigid I am riding bicycle cables for years without any problems.
Cheap as hell, and they do the job!
No need buying expensive HD cables or whatever cables they try to sell.
They come in lenghts of 2 meters.
I used to run a 16"ape on the rigid, no issues, worked very well.
Better spend you hard earned money on other shit, but not on oem cables!

I've run plenty of bicycle cables too. No reason not to and you can get reusable ends from the Help aisle at auto stores or from cable repair kits. I keep both in my stash.
