So, would the R100RT clutch cable be the longest available factory clutch cable that would fit a R90/6? I put on a set of Flander pullback bars and I'm really happy with the end result but I had to route the clutch cable directly along the front of the gas tank instead of through the gauge mount....I'd like to find a cable with a few more inches in length. All the other cables worked fine.

Largiader has a list of available cables and sizes on his site, I believe.

1178mm is the longest one made.

1178 is the longest throttle cable....I need a longer CLUTCH cable...looks like there is one 90mm or so longer than the one I have....should be just about right. Thanks for the link!

I've had the same achey back / shoulder thing with the stock bars - and that is with 1/2" risers in place. After about 500 miles or so, I have to take a long break - my back just can't take it.
This is starting to sound like a solution - at least one worth exploring. What do I have to lose but a bit of cash and some time, which will all be worth it if it can save my neck and shoulders and keep me from visiting the doctor in search of muscle relaxers (it got that bad last year).

Worked very well with my ST.

Looking into this a little more the RT and the PD use the same clutch cable. They are both 1520mm long. So you best bet is to re-route it.
