Throttle cable length


Lifetime Supporter
Stock Superformance throttle cable length is 121"
Sleeve length with threaded ends is 104"
Peddle box end is a clovis type
cable is 1/16" thick

I looked everywhere for these measurements and couldn't find them so here they are for posterity...

Don't be stupid like me and keep installing SPF cables :furious:.... Get a Pegasus or some other proper racing cable :idea:

That way you don't have to spend Fathers day on a flatbed truck :sad:

Probably too late now, but most large motorcycle repair shops can make you a stronger/heavy-duty cable with all the fixings while you wait. They make them all the time for clutch and throttles....... S
Mcmaster-Carr sells them in different strand-count and flexibility. If you're ever in a pinch on the road, most bike shops carry the heavy-duty brake cables for tandem (road) bikes so they run about 120" in length. Same diameter we use in our housings and usually 80-100lb test. I carry a spare but it would be major bitch to replace out in the field with the tightly spaced fuel rails on my stack injection.

For periodic/preventative maintenance, buy the motorcycle cable lubers to force the cable lube down the full length of the housing. The cable is less likely to break if it moves freely...
