Cables are frequently problematic, especially throttle cables. Triumph unit twins with Concentric
carburetors used "top-hat" shaped ferrules on the end of the throttle cable to be fit directly into a drilled hole on the carburetor top cap, and were adjusted by way of an inline threaded adjuster. Cables designated specifically for BSA unit twins have a plain ferrule on the end and the threaded adjusters on the carburetor top caps are retained for cable lash adjustment. Often times, especially when non-stock handlebars are fitted, a universal throttle cable is called for to solve the fitment problems. We offer a 53" universal throttle cable from Barnett which includes fittings for custom applications, or when an original cable is not available. Soldered universal brake and clutch cables are subject to high loads and are more difficult to solder up to handle the load reliably, but throttle and choke cables, which are subject to lighter loads are relatively easy to make.
