Featherlight throttle cables for the 650 V-Strom

British control cable manufacturer, Venhill, is expanding its range of replacement lines and among the latest additions are replacement twin throttle cables for the 2011-on Suzuki DL 650 V-Strom ABS. Clutch cables are on their way!

Developed from OEM items, Venhill Featherlight Throttle Cables are designed to deliver improved performance and durability along with smoother action, which is a real plus for mile-munchers like the V-Strom.

Each cable features Venhill’s high quality marine-grade stainless steel inner wire, for minimum stretch, and a PTFE ‘teflon’ liner, for minimum friction and a lighter action. The liner also removes the need for heavy lubrication.

Venhill cables are ‘bird-caged’, a special process applied to the end of the inner cable wire, which allows solder to penetrate the weave of the cable making the bond with the nipple much stronger. The process adds extra strength and durability, and reduces the danger of cable breakage.

Designed to be a straight swap – no modifications required – the replacement cables for the V-Strom retail at £34.40 and come in a choice of colours. You can browse the full range of cables, hoses, tools and more at Venhill’s website.
