    Throttle cables for 650T

    Does anyone know if the 500 and 650 turbo throttle cables are interchangeable? They have different part numbers, so I wasn't sure (and I am too lazy to go out to the hot garage to pull a 500 apart to find out). Motion Pro carries the 500T cables but they do not show them for the 650T.

    Shorter in length, I am using 500 bars on the bike? Smidgen is a great unit of measure, much easier than millimeters or inches!

    23 smidgens to the inch on average

    that is british smidges or BSU

    21 international smidges per inch ISU

    Except in a hot Arkansas shop, then it's a smidgen longer due to expansion.....

    Does that mean you're using the 500T "over the top assembly," or the 650 traditional below the bar throttle assembly?

    I have to use the 650 throttle to remain in production (imagine the speed advantage from the 500T throttle), but I was wondering if the 500 cables will hook up. I am aware the 650 choke cable is unique, but I don't use that much.

    I keep the workshop about 75, but the storage areas get pretty steamy this time of the year.

    No Murray, we use squirrel tails and raccoon tails most of the time, much easier than trying to find a tape measure. Especially helpful when something needs to be cut a hair smaller.
