    Default measuring throttle cable correctly and going from a 90 to strait?

    my throttle cable seems to be way too long. doesnt matter how i route it.....not sure how since these bars are taller than the oem bars that were on the bike when i got it. anyway.....the cable measures about 30.5" from inner sleeve to beginning of adj nut on the 90 end. with a 90 it just gets in the way and seems to always want to rub against my bars or springer etc. when i put the cable in the carb and take it to my assembly it is about 25.25" where i have it marked......so would i just do a 25.5" (slack) cable but with a strait end?

    Man, a 25" throttle cable is pretty damn short, especially when the bars are turned full lock to the left. The first pic doesnt make your cable look to short....maybe a larger shot so we can get an idea of the slack in the cable when fully hooked up.

    Is that a master cylinder? What is that setup? As for the cable, make sure you have room for full range of motion on your bars and you want it loose enough that it doesn't strain or kink.
