what merchants for cables? 1 Year, 10 Months ago  
I need a custom cable made up for the 02 roadie. I need it +6 and have the hsr fitting on the carb end. Maxair wants $120 vefore i even add lenght to it is that the going rate now or is he just trying to bend people over?

I assume i could go right to barnett but is there a place i can go that will beat barnetts msrp? I know that sounds dumb but i ran into a company that it was more money to buy direct than go through a mechant

I normally call Barnet and they have given me a discout that will beat or match any price I can find. I if you are looking for break and clutch lines last time I called them they had a long lead time and they told me to call galfer or goodridge. http://www.galferusa.com/custom-brake-lines/ hope that helps.

SS Customs has pretty good prices for that cable. Let me know who you find for the best price because I'm gonna need a cable like that this year. I don't think mine needs to be 6 over but I need to measure to see.

I got hydraulic hoses from Hellriser Customs. They were great on and off the phone.

Re:what merchants for cables? 1 Year, 10 Months ago  
Hey Smokes that deal you ran into where you could buy from a dealer cheaper than going direct is a common practice. The manufacturer does not want to mess with small orders and want to "protect" their dealers. I worked in the industrial supply business right after I got out of the service and that's where I ran into that situation. Sell in big lots to their dealers and then let their dealers rage a price war.

SS custom cycle has the black ($55)or SS ($75)cables in +6 for the HSR pull cable. (and other lengths)

They also have the push cables.

Hope the link works. (may have to copy and paste)

Good Luck

You want my advice thought you're going to get it anyway watch out for cables labeled + 6 + 10 etcetera because there is a lot of crossover between motorcycles + 10 for 1 Bike maybe + 6 for another also make sure the fittings then all the hardware is Chrome plated because I have cheesy painted metal ones that are rusting cheap Chinese ships I have + 10 on my Roadstar with 16-inch Apes and I would rather have 2 to 4 inches more because the cable has to make a sharp turn measure the length of total cable you need ask for the cable length

I used Tim from metric magic but both ends were stock. I have Barnett cables and he was considerably cheaper than I could get from barnett
