Cable issues
« on: April 09, 2017, 08:43:06 PM »

Currently got a Comet 125 which has started being converted to GT125R. Headlight bracket is welded on and front end fits nicely but decided to keep the Comet handlebars on. The problem I'm facing now is that the clutch and throttle cables don't seem to be long enough, front brake hose needs to be longer, and the GT125R wiring loom needs extending in a few places. Also need to cut windshield down a few inches but unsure of the best way to cut it down. Any help gratefully received. Thanks

For the screen problem, the GT650S had the R nose-cone but the N handlebars.
Worth a look to see how the screen has been changed to fit it all.

In my mind a full-faired with Comet handlebars is a GT125F.

I've only got half of the fairings fitted like the GT650S. Somebody suggested cutting the screen down but not sure of best method to avoid cracking. Looks like polycarb which is prone to cracking when cut. Do you know if clutch and throttle cables are longer on other Hyosung models?

Use GV125 cables.

Not sure about trimming polycarbonate.

Are they much longer?
