Throttle Cables

Has anyone used Barnett for custom length throttle cables? How about Motion Pro?
After a bit of searching I found this thread, https://www.superhawkforum.com/forum...al-bars-33141/
post 14. Wonder how much longer these cables might be. I only need an inch, inch and a half to make things good. The big question with the VT 1100 cables is the inner/outer ratio.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Only help I can give is my experience with Motion Pro cables. We use them almost exclusively at the shop. I've installed many. Fit, finish and quality are there. I can't advise on custom though, sorry.

I've used Motion Pro for custom cables many times... tell them the fitment and what length, get a new cable in 2 weeks.
I mostly build my own throttle cables now but still outsource clutch and brake cables

Thanks for the replies.
I have an email out to Motion Pro asking about the free and housing length of the cables they make as a stock replacement for a VT1100C. Why this bike? I found some info here that indicated that those cables are a longer length and direct swap for VTR cables. A big MAYBE, I hope.
