The control cables come as an assembled unit. You would have to either melt one of the lead beads off or cut one off one end of the cable to get the old sleeve off and the new one on and then re cast a lead bead on to take the removed ones place. No guarantee that you would get a good re cast either. A new OEM cable is about $23 or so I believe. Much less hassle to do that and know it's put together correctly.

That is a stock Kaw part, and it comes with the stock grip around it..you can not buy the two seperately.
Any Kaw dealer should be able to order it , as the "right grip assembly".

(The stock grip is actualy formed over the throttle tube, so they sell them together. You of course can cut off the grip if you want.

Some aftermarket suppliers sell a universal throttle sleeve that should fit most japanese bikes. The grip is glued to the tube afterwards, but it will probably have to be cut off the original.

A triumph sleeve could be modified to fit, but it won't be right.

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some

thank for the info, i located the stock kaw one for $17+ $9.50 shipping at ron ayers. the one on e-bay is off an 89 and is the complete assembly including the kill switch, i placed a bid & someone outbid me. i will most likely go with the new one and cut the grip off unless i could find someone parting out with a used one.

Cindy might have one for you, but she is out of town right now. She should be back by Monday, I think.
