I took the stock buckhorn bars off of my cx500 custom, ad added daytona bars. I also need to update my throttle and brake cables, so would it be a good idea to get cables that fit a cx500 deluxe, or standard? The new bars are much shorter than the buckhorn bars, so this would be a good time to update to get new, shorter cables. Let me know what you think.

cables that fit are better than too long, don't know if standard will fit or not, someone else may know. If you need shorter than any stock cable go to "Motion Pro" they will make any length you want.


I will check out Motion Pro. Do you know by chance how long the Custom cables are to begin with? Do you any as to what length may be needed for daytona bars?

I've had two lengths of throttle cables.This present ride used to have,"Custom" bars and the cables were 121cm(43" inner or outer,not sure)but both my Standard Daytona type bars use the shorter 38"(100cm) cables.


Thanks Shep! My next question is where might I find these shorter cables? There are a lot of places online that don't list the length of their cables, and they tend to say they are compatible for the CX Custom, and CX Deluxe.
