I just tore apart my carbs for a good cleaning and found out my throttle cables are about to snap. Where is the best place to order new ones? Honda shop in town is quoting me $45 for both and they wont get here until Wen. I was also hoping to get them a little bit sooner.
My bike is an 86 Honda VF500F Interceptor.

I didn't want to spend $40 on a used cable so I went to home depot, bought cable and made my own. Works great!

That's a little hard to do for me as I don't have internet at home anymore, and it is hard to do it on my phone. Basically I went to home depot, and bought the same gauge cable, and some connectors.

I took one of those connectors and cut it in half. I then took that half and cut it to be the same size as the original barrel. Drilled a hole in the side of it, slid the cable in, and then clamped it down. Seems to be working great but we will see.

Let me know if that does not make sense, and I will try to do pics soon.
