SOURCE: I am changing the handlebars to 16

To change the throttle/idle cables, first you need to remove the fuel tanks so you can get to the carb/throttle body. Loosen the adjusters at the throttle grip on the handlebars. Remove the idle cable first and the remove the throttle cable from the carb/throttle body. Then take the two bolts out of the throttle grip housing halves and carefully seperate them. Remove the old cables from the twist grip. Reinstall new cables in the reverse procedure. Before starting the bike, make absolutely sure that the throttle cables work like they're supposed to and the carb/throttle body will close completely.

To remove the clutch cable, remove exhaust system or whatever might be in the way on the right side of the bike. You need to remove the right side transmission cover. Drain the transmission oil. Remove the chrome right side transmission cover. Disconnect the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Screw the end of the clutch cable out of the cover and take the cable loose from the clutch lever on the handlebars. Reinstall in reverse order making sure you install a new O-ring on the cable at the transmission cover. Replace cover and refill transmission with oil. Reinstall anything else you had to take off.

SOURCE: @sbcglobal.nethow long should the clutch

I usually use a piece of wire and tape it the original cable until the cable stops. Then, I run the wire on up to the clutch lever. Remove the wire and measure it.

Then go to Barnett's site and order the cable or see if they've got a "ready made" cable.

SOURCE: torque specs for 16" ape

None of my books give any torque specs for either the riser nuts/bolts nor the handlebar clamp bolts. Just use the tried and trusted "Germanic" method. "Gutentite". Use a bit of Loctite 242 med. strenght blue on the fasteners.

Good Luck
