FB Cruiser 68 cable help please

Post  philipburton on Fri Nov 18, 2016 8:34 pm

Hi everyone

The clutch and throttle cables need to be replaced on my Cruiser 68 restoreation. Im pretty sure that the existing cables are the wrong ones.  How long should both of these cables be? diameters would also be a help.

Also the throttle should auto return shouldnt it?

Thanks in advance

cable length

Post  piston 197 on Sat Nov 19, 2016 7:44 am

Throttle cable on the Cruiser 68 is 3Ft 3" and it has a mid adjuster
Clutch cable ,I do not have a figure for the model 68, but the model 71 and 75 Cruiser is 4Ft 5" ,cannot see the model 68 being any different as the frame and engine is the same ?

Hi Philip,

A bit more info to add to JH's. I have measured the cables on my 68 and can confirm the overall cable lengths of the throttle and clutch cables that JH has stated. Regarding the throttle cable, the "outer cable" is approx. 36" including adjuster (with the adjuster at maximum) and 3/4" of adjustment is available. The adjuster is 6 1/2" from the carb end of the outer cable. Nominal diameters are 0.06" for the inner and 0.18" for the outer. The clutch cable has an outer 49" long, + the adjuster at the gbox end is 11/2" long. Nominal diameters are 0.08" and 0.21". Control cables are none nylon lined types.
Note that the measurements were made with the cables on the bike so the tolerance on the stated outer cable lengths is likely to be +/- 1/4".

Regards
Dave

Yes Peter
Throttle 3 FT 1" Romac No TG740
Clutch 4FT 5" Romac No TG742
Front brake 3FT 3" Romac No TG 497 ( common with Lt Cruiser 79,Falcon 74) the Falcon 81 cable is an inch shorter for some unfathomable reason ?
