    Kawasaki Js550 vs 650sx steering cable.

    Will a 550 steering cable work for a 650?

    I've found that the Js length is 3 inches longer which should be fine, but the throw is 3/8 shorter.
    Is their enough thread to gain that difference?

    Probably not, im sure Kawi would have used the same cable if they could have. You might be able to get away with using the JS cable and a 1" extension.

    Well I'm going to try it anyways considering I've got a few laying around.
    I'll update with the answer when I get around to doing it.

    Wouldnt you also want to use a 650 steeing plate and pivot bolt as well to maximize performance. However, is there a difference between the cable aside from throw? Ie mounting placement.

    Not sure on washer placement location or what not.
    All 650 parts on 650, just attempting to be cheap and use a 550 cable.

    I was hoping to hear, "o yea not a problem ive done it pleny of times!"

    I'll update once I try fitment. Maybe I can be that guy one day.
