    Since you have existing cables, making new ones is relatively straightforward. You have the exact dimensions for the inner and outer. I would assume you can reuse some of the pieces, like adjusters, elbows etc. Finding the cable and ends etc. is easy. I have dealt with Venhill and have had good success. I needed some Commando clutch cable ends that they didn’t stock, but they brought some in for me from the UK., so if you don’t see what you need, try asking. You’ll need a solder pot, but can just make one out of a 1’ pipe cap. You’ll need to buy some proper flux and figure out a way to “bird cage” the cable ends. The “bird cage is important! A bird cage tool is probably about $150, but with a drill and some patience you can make one. There are a couple of decent videos on how to make cables and a bunch more that are shite. Buy some extra inner cable so you can practice the birdcage thing a couple of times.

    I have reached out to VenHill about having them clone my existing cables.

    The jackets appear to be in decent shape, but the pull cable must have gotten moisture in it because the cable rusted through and snapped.

    the r looks quite different in the bodywork compared to the 6. we sold the 6 new, and man they were a pita to work on. two stupid little batteries that always went flat and you had to get the front fairing off to access them and to do that you have to spread the lower join around the front wheel. stupido.

    The SB6 has two 6v batteries or something still?

    The SB6R doesn't seem that bad to work on.
    you just resign yourself to taking the body off every time. Not like it's hard, or even takes that long.
    it just looks intimidating

    Been plugging away.


    Took all the body work off for a deep clean.


    -New battery installed and everything seems to be working as it should.
    -Confirmed that the mileage was correct as listed.
    -Drained the oil and changed the filter (OEM Filter). Oil looked new, but was a few years old. Funny that the bodywork says one weight of oil, but the engine cap says another. Unsure of the exact amount to use. Will just add oil while on a padock stand and see.
    -Carbs are cleaned. Just waiting on gaskets.
    -Throttle cable will be going off to be replicated.
    -New spark plugs


    Thinking that I need to pull the masters and at the very least flush them with fresh fluid.
