Throttle cables with new carb

I currently have 38" braided lines that I ran with my S&S carb. I bought a Mikuni 45 and the cables look too long. Does anyone know the proper length cables I need off the top of your head?

Doesn't it depend upon your particular setup? and how much loop you wanna have given a certain route you prefer?

I would grab a 12 gauge wire and mock it up as a cable to the desirable route- measure and look for most closely matching length...

Beerman may be saying that the inner wire of the cable it too long and there's too much free play.

I have a 113" Ultima with the Mikuni carb. When looking in the Jireh parts catalog, they list cables with anywhere from 3" free inner cable up to 5" or so inner cable outside the outer housing. I've tried to measure mine and compare it with HD's stock setups without any luck so far.

Most new mikunis use the same cable as a cv carbed hd. The have a 5" inner cable length. The newer S&S carbs come with two cable stand offs. The long one uses the later cable 5'' cable. The shorter one sticks up about a 1/2" off the carb body and the inner cable length is closer to 3"

The older mikunis took a mikuni specific cable. The easiest way to tell which mikuni you have is with carb on the intake the older style had the cable hookup on the rear cylinder side of the carb. The new ones have the cable pull on the front cylinder side of the carb.

These take the 5" inner length cable
