    To the OP:

    As I stated in an earlier post: "I recommend MotionPro Cables & Kit's. They will custom make throttle cables to any length for Twist or Thumb throttle" and "To save time, costs and insure you get the proper cable for your carburetor model & year; call & order from a source that stocks all cables, extended included, as well as all carburetors. This insures you get what you need at the lowest cost & quickest delivery"....

    Anyway; call Motion Pro First; BDT is a distributor for them anyways, then if you still need assistance you know who to call.

    I just spoke to motion pro the other day and I was quoted $125-150 to make a custom cable that they draw up and send you specs to approve,they had another option that was $65 but they go off of your measurements and sketch but they don’t guarantee fitment with that option..so if your measurements are off it’s on you..

    The extended MP (Motion Pro) cables in stock are purchased in bulk from MP by BDT Motorsports, therefore; it allows BDT (as well as any other distributor stocking MP custom cables) to pass along a much lower price than the $125-$150 MP normally charges for custom made Length cables.

    By much lower I mean Less Than and under Half the Motion Pro Price....<$62 for +2" MP Cable at BDT-M, or any other stocking distributor...

    Stock stem, mp twist to pwk is a cable length of ~ 40". Here is a +2” cable going to motion pro twist to pwk. $20 from mp, might find it cheaper from a parts warehouse.

    Offering help, advice and options is not a sales pitch. I edited & added "or any other stocking distributor" for the 'jealousy' challenged. I guess you rather 250R enthusiasts not have Options, or a cost effective solution for custom cables, or pay the $125-$150 price instead....that is still a real option

    Real logical thinking...NOT

    MP # 01-0227 is not Long enough for a Plus 2" Stem...neither are the #01-0604 or #01-0807...ignore the 42" as it means little.

    The OP can buy it and see for himself...

    You won't find this on .org because Carlos isn't allowed over there. This site should be renamed AskCarlos.com. Obviously he is the only person that knows anything
