Thought the original question was how the cables should be run. First thing I'd do is correct the throttle cables. Under the brake lever.
it was - the whole handle bar configuration is a bit helter-skelter. digging through the replies i'm beginning to think that Gary E (reply #2) hit the nail on the head. careful inspection of control levers, twist grip, cables, etc., it just may be i'm looking at original equipment. thinking if i switch out the bars to the correct 42-4968 handlebars, everything else should fall into place - at least i hope that's the case. Mark Z's post seems to have cleared up the lever issue - an why the differences between the 66 and 67 parts manuals. anyway, ordering up the correct bars and re-assemble everything with existing parts.
