Cheap throttle cable and housing

  1. I am motorizing my old dyno roadster with ape hangers (i used to have a custom throttle cable for it but have no friggin clue where it went. )

    Anyway I need a new throttle cable as this bike is long and most stock cables are too short.

    Does anyone know a easy way to jimmy up a cable without having to spend $30 on a throttle setup?

    I bought some wire from home depot for .40 and was thinking id solder it to the existing shorter cable but people say it won't function properly.

    Bueller? Bueller?

    Staton has good quality throttle cables at good prices. Finger trigger w/5ft length is about 15$.... need to specify which motor to get it right and length.
