Where can I get longer than stock throttle cables?

The 04-05 throttle cables are really short compared to the 00' cables that came stock on my bike. It limited my right hand turning a tiny bit before but now with the new SS lines ( double banjo bolt instead of stock single) its even tighter and something needs to be done....that is unless i plan to race the bike in nascar and only go left.


Where can i find extended throttle cables? I know streetfighter kits and bar riser kits often come with them but I havent found any US distrubutors. most are in england or UK.

Let me clarify.

I did a motor swap. When doing so I switched all the clipon accessories (start switch, throttle tube) from the stock 00' stuff to the 04' stuff. Well 04-05 gsxr's have shorter than normal throttle cables so when i turn to the right, the cables are actually being pulled tight and are limiting my steering. basically I cant turn very far right because it pulls on the throttle cables.

I need some LONGER cables so this doesn't happen. Now do I make sense?

I would call up motion pro and ask to speak to a tech guy I am sure they can find something if you already know how long of a cable you need

Sounds like you are talking about BRAKE lines, not throttle cables. Unless you mean the cable is routed around the new brake lines which is making them shorter? I would also go with motion pro and either ask them which ones are longer or get some customs made.
