Hello,

I am changing my RS bars for LT bars.

The problem I am having is that the throttle cable that I have is not the Chain type.

Original Part #32 72 2 310 498 9

The length that fits is a part # 32 73 1 457 378 but does not have the same end as mine.

It there a different part that matches the handle end?

I to was looking at changing to the LT bars for my RS, however, I went for the 'C' bars in the end and they have made a world of difference with riding position. the added bonus is I didn't need to change any cables/ electrics or lines, it was a simple swap over.

Might be worth a thought, especially when you start adding up the cost of cables, brake lines etc.

Best of luck what ever you choose.

Dave

I had this done on my K 1100 RS. Don't remember there was the same problem with different cable ends. My suggestion would be that you contact Motorworks UK through their web site and consult with them - you can order the cable at the same time (new or used one)
