Does anybody know where a bad cable can be replaced with the ends crimped on? Seems a shame to have to replace a whole throttle cable set just because one cable is frayed.

You can get cable ends in all sizes.On some bikes I will buy stainless steel cable to make my cables with.

Dont be 34 bucks richer and possibly seriously injured because your throttle hung. Ty Davis sells a new carb wheel to prevent refraying. Play it safe on this one, spend the 75 bucks for new cable and wheel.
