Length of a Throttle Cable

Postby HarveysRV » Tue Nov 18, 2014 9:12 am



I know this is a weird question but I need to know how long a throttle cable is on my 2007 Honda Goldwing GL1800. None of the part companies I called can or would tell me. The part # is 17910-MCA-A60. I am assuming there may be a push & pull cable but since I am new to this I do not know. Thanks for your input.

According to the Parts Manual, there is only one, but it does not say how long it is.

It could be as long as a piece of string :twisted:

Not sure how long it is but there are 2 cables. Look at them running out the back of the accelerator grip, one to accelerate, one to decelerate incase what ever is spring loaded fails at its job.
