Self Made Brake Cable using Clutch Cable
I need to make a brake cable for a trike I'm building. I'm using clutch cable for the cable, but am having difficulty with the end of the cable. I think you make a kit that allows one to make their own cables, but I cannot find it. I've welded some nuts on one end of a stock Harley clutch cable, and it works, but that does not look good or seem right. I think the usual clutch cable (Harley) ends are either pressed on or maybe soldered, and need a quick, safe, effective way to build the brake cable for this triek. Do you have a kit and is it available through Drag? Or, do you sell it?

We do offer some components for making your own cables, such as inner wire, housing, and our cable fittings kit, shown here: http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/partno/01-0055/ However, these fittings need to be soldered on using a solder pot and flux, which would need to be purchased elsewhere. You can try Flanders Company for these items: http://bitly.com/fi3Fog
Welding or using a soldering gun to connect fittings is not recommended. We offer a custom cable making service that many people use for trike cables, so we have a lot of experience building them. If you continue to have troubles locating the items you need to build your own you may want to consider calling us to order a custom cable: 650-594-9600
