Revive your big sports tourer with Venhill Featherlight Throttle Cables for the Kawasaki ZZR1400. The new cabling is available for both the standard and ABS models of the ZZR from 2006 to 2015. So there’s a chance your original equipment may be passed optimum performance by now.
The Venhill Featherlight Throttle Cables for the Kawasaki ZZR1400 are made in the UK and claim to be a higher standard than the original factory equipment, despite looking almost identical. Which should mean that you get a smoother throttle action. Which is good if you’re touring with a pillion and don’t want them doing a woodpecker impersonation on the back of your crash helmet every time you accelerate.
The new cables won’t just give a smoother response to your throttle – they’re also apparently more durable and reliable. The construction involves stainless steel inner wire for minimal stretching, with a teflon liner to reduce any friction or need for lubrication. And they’re also ‘bird-caged’, which sounds like some kind of alternative lifestyle choice, but means the solder penetrates the weave of the cable to make the bond with the nipple much stronger.
So the Venhill Featherlight Throttle Cables for the Kawasaki ZZR1400 claim a smoother throttle action, more reliability and more durability. But obviously the key selling point is that you can choose from a range of coloured outers to be able to match your motorcycle and outfit, judging by most buyers of aftermarket parts. They’ll cost you £31.81 for a set.
