    This one could be hard. It might be easier to measure the clutch cable and we can tell you which ones are similar length.

    Just short of 40 inches. I bet the cx500 and cx650 custom cables are about that long. I believe the gl cables are 10 inches longer than cx. I just took a look in my closet where I have a good deal of cables and for some reason I don't have a clutch cable. Maybe I have one in storage. If not I know I have a cx650 cable out in the garage that I can measure.

    Shep says....

    My stock Clutch cables are 35" outer and 39" end-to-end.



    That's for the Cx500. Standard, Deluxe and Custom are the same length.

    Actually when I asked David Silvers(Great service and help) he said they had two basic lengths for the CX depending on the bars e.g 38" for Daytona/Brit style bars and a longer 43" for Buckhorn/Custom style.A pal I ride with has a fantastic,"Slinky glide" Clutch cable that Wemoto do which is even shorter and leaves no slack to flap around on his Daytona bars,

    His clutch activation is smooth as silk.Mine are good,his is better



    PS

    My next clutch cable and or throttle cables will be,"Slinky glide" as they are a similar price to standard cable prices anyway
    I won't miss the Human Race,well maybe,"Fish-and-Chips"

    Hi Guys, I found Wemoto online and priced cables. Yeah there price is about half of what the seller on ebay wanted for a Oem cable for the turbo model. Priced Clutch, Choke and Speedo cable should be about $63 US for all of it and shipping.Hopefully about same shipping to Canada.Anyone have stuff shipped from Wemoto to canada?

    On a side note went for ride today with new Oxford heaterz wife got me for Christmas. Nice toasty warm hands, recommend highly, temp was around 36f or 2c for we canadians.Got to buy better socks now,as feet got cold, never ends does it. Ironic how hard these bikes pull in cold weather when you have to watch for slippery pavement.Thankfully didn't find any but had good ride to Blaine to pickup parcel at US postoffice.Well getting late so thanks for the help. Cheers Gerard
