My throttle cable is pretty frayed and needs replacing. Are most of you using the OEM cable or would an aftermarket cable better. Which aftermarket? Etc...

Thanks in advance!

I have been using a Motion Pro for over a year. The stocker only lasted about 6 months.
I run Hare Scrambles in the mud and muck (very hard on the cables) and mine hasn't started to fray at the carb like the stocker.
I wouldn't buy any other brand!!
Just my opinion, take it for what it's worth.

I just replaced mine with an OEM about 3 weeks ago. It was about $36. My old one was attached by only one strand. The only reason I picked an OEM was that they had one in stock. FWIW, the old one lasted about a year and a half of riding at least every weekend. I don't know if that's good or bad.

OK, thanks. I think I'm going to go with the Motion Pro. I've heard good things about that brand.
