    Reverse cable on 99 1200 Limited I am now officially confused

    So are the cables suppose to go one way and one way only?

    Reason I ask is I have the cable install but nothing is matching up. Under the dash it appears to be a both 2" short and the rear on the jet also seems to be about 2 inches short. Now if on side was really long and the other was short I would thing I had it backwards but Ive put it in both ways wight e same outcome.

    Am I just loosing my mind or is there some special way of doing this.

    Are all the '99 Yamaha 1200 reverse cables to same length or did they come in special length for different skis. Cause it almost appears that the one I have is the wrong size.

    I didn't buy a complete kit form a store I bought just a cable from someone parting out a 1200.

    The first time I put it in I thought it was backwards, so I turned it around and it still appears to be the same.

    Decoding Yamaha part numbers
    Instructions


      • 1Note the first three numbers. They provide information about the specific Yamaha model for which the part was an original component. For instance, "111" might refer to a specific motorcycle model manufactured in 1985.


      • 2View numbers four through eight. They represent the part type. The first of the five numbers provides information about the overall part category, such as engine. The next four numbers provide details about the actual part, such as the specific engine part.

        So the cable you have is for a GP, not an XLT

    I figured it was wrong... Thanks for the help and the new knowledge on reading numbers.


    Upside... I found a busted hose while fighting with this cable for the last couple hours.

    Lesson learned, Quit trying to save a couple dollars and just buy it new.... Since now its going to cost me for the part plus what I spent on the wrong cable.
