So how do I, as a Yank, get my hands on a right bar control group with top-exit throttle cable for less an arm and/or leg?

Any other bike have one that would do? I'm not a restorer, I just want something that doesn't bang into the tank.

Mine is a US '82 KZ1300.

Guess you need to search in Europe or hunt after parts from a B1 - not easy. Pricing in Europe are WAY higher than in the US so I would go after your local sources.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you

ZN1300's have top exit cables.  Should be easy to find, there are more being parted out than there are on the road.

I've got both a Euro-spec 1300 throttle and a CBX Euro-spec reproduction throttle coming, so I'll let you know which is more functional!  Seems like it shouldn't be this hard to find these parts!

Thanks to those who made this possible!
