Looking for one ser.3 rear brake cable outer that's about 2 inches longer than stock. If even longer, that's fine, I can cut it down. Anyone know where I can find one or a similar motorcycle cable outer? The rear cable outer I have is 25 1/2 inch. I need a 26 1/2 or even better, a 27. Longer is better, I will cut to fit if to long. It is not possible to pass the cable under the frame mount with the lth short intake and offset frame comes. Has to go over the mount and behind the carb.

Would an extended cable ferule at both ends give you the extra length ?

JJ's Cables they have all the patterns for every bike/scooter make from the 1950's onwards,they make bespoke cables for anything you want,most of the cables for old bikes you buy are made by them for the main dealers.Based in Lighthorne Warwickshire they deal with the USA all the time so will send you anything you need.I was there today picking up my bespoke cable he said send him an email of what you need and he could sort it for you.Won't put his number and email up on here but if you google it you'll find it.

Another option is to use car handbrake cables. They are often excellent quality, nylon lined because they tend to not be serviced for the life of the car & some even have a fixed M6 end that can be used @ the rear end on the brake operating arm ;)
