cb650 – new brake cable

Adam kept bustin my balls for having the original brake cable all long and stupid, so I finally bucked up and bought a new stainless steel braided line.

I guess I didn’t read the fine print in the eBay post because when I got the package in the mail, there were 3 cables, bolts etc… in there.

So, I have 2 extra cables, bolts and washers. The cable is 30″ long, so it fits the 650 perfect with basically no slack.

If anybody wants to replace their shitty cable with a legit one, hit me up. You’ll def notice a huge increase in braking power.

Either flow me $20 bones, or get me drunk at N star, and it’s yours. Let me know…

    Just picked up a braided cable or my 650 and getting rid of these stock wheelbarrow bars. Did you have to shorten your throttle as well?

    Also thanks for a lot of good information here. Just picked up a sitting cb650 and your post on the charging system was much easier to work with then the pages of my manual.

    @josh
    I did not have to shorten the throttle. Works as is.
