Go to:

and download a manual. It will have cable and harness routing diagrams that will help with your project.

There was a modification that many people did to thier 400s back in the day. The actuator arm was cut, and an extension welded on to improve the leverage ratio.

Yipper, I did that, added 3/8" to it,
Works great, single finger clutch / rear brake taps no prob.
You'll find that the cable is close to it's max adj. but I change
it every season so it's not an issue.
Do it!
