Question Looking for replacement throttle cables!

Hello all, normally I hit up the Motion Pro catalog and order some extra throttle cables for my bikes, but the Versys seems to have little aftermarket throttle cable support.

The cables that came on my bike are MUCH too long, as they fit even a little big when the bar riser was on.

Do I need to order the factory ones? BikeBandit has a two week delay on the throttle cables... Not cool!

Thanks, Urbane.

Have you adjusted the throttle play at the engine adjuster? The adjuster at the handlebar is only for fine tuning adjustments.

Do I need to go take a picture? There is no way the current ones are factory cables - the cables stick out past the headlight housing.

Here is a picture comparing what I expected the cables to run like, and what mine run like (see how they stick past headlight!?).

I went with the stock cables on my 2012 when I replaced them last summer...
