SOURCE: I am changing the handlebars to 16

To change the throttle/idle cables, first you need to remove the fuel tanks so you can get to the carb/throttle body. Loosen the adjusters at the throttle grip on the handlebars. Remove the idle cable first and the remove the throttle cable from the carb/throttle body. Then take the two bolts out of the throttle grip housing halves and carefully seperate them. Remove the old cables from the twist grip. Reinstall new cables in the reverse procedure. Before starting the bike, make absolutely sure that the throttle cables work like they're supposed to and the carb/throttle body will close completely.

To remove the clutch cable, remove exhaust system or whatever might be in the way on the right side of the bike. You need to remove the right side transmission cover. Drain the transmission oil. Remove the chrome right side transmission cover. Disconnect the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Screw the end of the clutch cable out of the cover and take the cable loose from the clutch lever on the handlebars. Reinstall in reverse order making sure you install a new O-ring on the cable at the transmission cover. Replace cover and refill transmission with oil. Reinstall anything else you had to take off.

SOURCE: @sbcglobal.nethow long should the clutch

I usually use a piece of wire and tape it the original cable until the cable stops. Then, I run the wire on up to the clutch lever. Remove the wire and measure it.

Then go to Barnett's site and order the cable or see if they've got a "ready made" cable.

SOURCE: Iwant to install a set

Nobody sells a kit specifically for this job but the parts are available. Custom Chrome sells the wiring extension kits. Barnett offers or will make us a set of cables for you but you must tell them the length of the cables. Once you figure out how long the cables need to be, you may find that they've already got them available. I usually put the bars on and then use stiff wire to "fabricate" a cable. Once you get the wire run like you want it, take off and measure it. This is the cable length you need. You can go to Barrnett's website and they've got a page that tells you how to measure the cable from the total length that you got using the wire.

Good Luck
Steve

1999 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic why would both ignition coils fail at the same time?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Wrong coil for service application.
2. Damaged or worn out spark plugs.
3. Spark plug gap too wide.
4. Damaged, leaking, worn out spark plug wires, boots, or center cap connectors check for spark leakage in the dark.
5. Excessive vibration due to the loose mounting bracket.
6. Faulty ground check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
