Pricing


Motion Pro Harley-Davidson® Custom Cable Program

The pricing listed below is standard pricing for custom cables that are 80 inches or less (housing length) and that are simple length changes to an OE motorcycles cable design that we have in our system. If the cable requires design changes or is for a cable design that we do not have in our system, pricing will be based on the complexity of the build and will vary with the complexity of the design and the amount of work required to finalize that design. If you are referencing a Motion Pro part number and the part number being referenced is more expensive than the standard custom cable cost, pricing will be based on the part number cost plus 10%.
