Spare Lectron throttle cable anyone?

Post by Woodsman97 » Fri Apr 02, 2021 8:45 pm

Anyone happen to have a spare throttle cable for a lectron carb or no where I can get one tomorrow?
Putting new grips on I found mine to be hanging on by a thread. I have one ordered but nobody local seems to carry them

I might be able to help out. I should have a pair of them.(one slightly longer than the other for use w/ bar risers). Not using my Lectron on the 150. They should be with the carb in my storage unit in Jessup though I should probably dig around in the garage first. Though I may be using the longer one on the 150 as I think it still has the Motion Pro throttle installed IIRC. What does the throttle end look like? A ball or a sideways cyl crimped on the cable? Anyway, I should have one.
where are you located?
Edit: I see your up in PA now so mine might be a bit far away. I'm pretty sure I reused one of the cables when I reinstalled the stock Mikuni carb. What makes the cable unique is the end for the throttle grip side. You might be able to use a factory grip and cable in a pinch?

I am near chambersburg/gettysburg, jessup is a little far for me. The throttle end is a brass circle piece. I am going to get a regular throttle cable and see if I can make it work. Thanks for trying to help

OT but where are you? Sounds like Fayetteville or Caledonia area. I’m also in the Gettysburg area.
Sorry, no cable to offer.
