Hey folks,

does anyone know what the limit is with stock cable length on an '06 wr450, i.e. how much higher can i go on the bars before i run out of cable?

i haven't had a chance to pull the tank and cut the zip ties to see how much extra i have.

also, if i don't have enough cable, where can i get some longer cables?

if you want longer cables, then call motion pro. they can custom make them for you for a reasonable price.

i had about 2.5 inches of rise on my bars with the spacers, and used my stock cables. when it was time for replacement, i just called motion pro and had them add 2 inches to the stock length.
