Thruxton throttle cables

Has anyone ever tried to pop off the plastic ends off the twist grip end of thruxton throttle cables, I need longer cables, I suspect they may be glued ?

Which bit do you mean?, there's nothing glued-up on the throttle cable assembly AFAIK:

Perhaps he's referring to the 90-degree turns with the adjustment widgets for each cable. Otherwise... ???

I was referring to the plastic 90`s at the twistgrip end and I figured it out, they simply screw off (anticlockwise). I bought cables from the UK for a Bonnevile America but needed these end pieces to work with my Thruxton twistgrip and flattrack bars.

why do you need longer cables? unless you have 1in riser and western bars, stock cables should fit just about any bars.

The original thruxton bars are very low clip ons, I have fitted dirt track bars that are very high, hence the longer cables.

Though, you should be able to reroute those cables...are you cables from 1in bars or 7/8?

I know, incredible, mind you it says "They come pre-lubed for silky smooth operation"

A bit like condoms...

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I cant figure out how to get the 90 degree plastic ends off. The OP mentions twisting them off but I cant see how that's possible seeing as the heads on the end of the cable are too wide to pass through the plastic.

I bought a British Customs Throttle Housing and the 90 degree plastic at the lever end is interfering with the installation. My cable looks exactly like pic Forchetto posted above.
