Throttle Cable replacement...
Looking to replace the stock GPR throttle cable, with one that is longer, for both routing issues around the triple pipes, as well as being able to hook up the throttle at the rear carb.
Ordered a Polaris Octane cable from Randy at Watcon.
-Price was similar to a GPR cable.
-It's about 7 FOOT long. The stock GPR cable is about 4 foot long.
-The cable will not work with stock I bodies due to the actual cable "throw" being shorter. If you had an aftermarket throttle wheel for the I-body then it would probably work fine. I'll test this out, since I do have one, donated from one of our members, Keith.
-The trigger end has the larger barrel, meaning it will work great in a UMI style trigger, but not on a stock Yamaha, since the Yami uses the smaller barrel screw thread.
-The Carb end is curved 90 degrees, which is nice for placing it at the bottom of the ski, yet running the cable on the bottom. Nice!
To be done:
-Test throttle action...is it correct?
-Install it on the ski.

Keep me posted, as I tend to forget that not everybody has aftermaket throttles and wheels.. I have shorter length cables also, but they all have the same approx throw. Don't forget about my "money back" return policy, if you cannot get it to work correctly!

Is the Octane cable the same as the PRO785 throttle cable?
I know when I switched carbs I had to do the same thing (although different platform) but it worked just fine with a UMI finger throttle and a UMI wheel at the carb. The PRO 785 cable is about 7-8' long as well...
Edit...You know Mark (to steal one of your own lines) you keep slapping Polaris parts on those Yami's and you might as well "unscrew the gas cap and slide a Polaris ski under it"...

That is good to know !

I think the cable is a tad longer than the 785, but maybe Bruce can chime in here.
My last concern is that the actual CABLE pull is different between the two cables...that is why it won't work on the I-body...it won't wrap around the wheel far enough, and probably not enough throttle pull to open the butterflys.
If this one doesn't work, do you have access to a Yamaha Superjet throttle cable??
