    clutch cable and throttle cables

    i have two issues! maybe a kinda soul can help out a first timer here. i have a 1973 honda cb360. i whent ahead flipped my handlebars and other little odds and ends, but now that i flipped my bars im having the throttle cabel stuck or hard to pull. especially when i have the wheel turned, not i do think that the cabels are binding up due to them being long. i know shorting them will do the trick but did anyone else have this issue?

    and now for my clutch cable. i have a clue but need to put this out there. since i flipped my bars ive had the clutch lever stick back when i squeeze it. and now along with this issue when i fix unstick the cable i go to kick start my bike and its not grabbing. just strait down no nothing. but if i tamper with the cable a bit and set it back into a position i then get the grab i need to kick start. any advice will be greatly appreciated thanks

    This isn't an answer, just a comment: Personally, I loathe flipped handlebars. Not only do they not look right, they're also extremely uncomfortable because they don't usually have the right angle. A direct consequence of this is that causes you to put your weight on the outside of your hands (closer to your pinkies) rather than evenly distributed amongst the width of your hands, or at least on the inside of your hands (closer to your thumbs). This is bad.

    Apparently, it causes cable problems too...

    clack sound under the cover and weird clutch action is badly adjusted clutch. 3 places to adjust - do in right order and it will be fine. Get the manual and read the right procedure.

    and I agree - flipped bars are dumb and look dumb.

    No such thing as a 1973 Honda CB360.
