Hi everyone, does anyone know who could make me an extra long choke cable for my GP ? Sure there was someone on here many moons ago . My problem is that I’ve tried an ordinary cable and an adjustable one but I can’t get it right due I think to the position of my carb. So rather than routing cable over frame under toolbox I’m going up and over !
I’ve bodged one together using bits I had to check length and fit and it’s fine (see pics) but my problem is the inner, have tried soldering the tip but no good it’s not happening ! And yes that’s an old speedo outer ! Sorry for long post !
Cheers .Image

Martin Leech (Knowledge) has confirmed that he still makes Custom length choke cables. It's the rear brake cables he does not make any more.
