I have a 71 triumph bonneville and am converting the cables from the dual pull to the single pull my question is I was going to use the choke stock plastic splitter and was wondering if there is a difference than the plastic one compared to the metal one is there a difference in the travel lengths inside the splitters?

Never heard of a metal junction box.
Mine has the plastic 60-0685, (244-104).
This is the only junction box listed from two suppliers and is described as air/throttle junction box.
Bear in mind, you will need the appropriate cables and adjusters.

The choke slide lifts more than the throttle slide,so there's no problem.
You can run one cable from your existing twistgrip,if you wish.
I've got a couple of brass junction boxes,so they do exist.

If youve got a soldering iron,you can make the cables fit.

I think that's what I have to do is make my own cables. I'm a little concerned about doing that because I have never done that before. Do I use regular solder on the ends of the cables?

Here's a Lunmad vid that might help (he has a metal 2-1 as well). Part 1 and 2 are helpful too:
