Longer throttle cable for '07 SF/D-Tracker?

The throttle open cable on my '07 250cc D-Tracker doesn't seem to like being routed under the gas tank-even though that is the only logical place for it.

It was okay until I took the carb off to do some mods. Now when I try and route it under the tank, throttle return is a bit slow. If the tank if off the bike, it returns fine-so it's making the bend under the tank that seems to disturb the t open cable-even though I've lubed it etc.

It operates better if I route it next to the tank mounting bolt on the right side, but it's not where it's supposed to be.

I see the part numbers for the 2007 KLX250 throttle open cable and the 2009 D-Tracker 250 cable are different, but there's no way of knowing if one is longer than the other etc



So.. if I knew of a throttle open cable that was a bit longer, I'd order one when I order some other Kaw parts online.

I solved the problem on my own it seems.

I hadn't left enough slack in the pull cable after doing the carb mods. Adjust for more slack, it's still hitting the stop at WOT, but now the extra play in the line has ended the slow throttle return..
