              I finally found Throttle Cable 021-947 for the TM-32 on a RE on the Sudco Price List. It's $22.00, Item #4,223 in a cast of millions, I guess.

              The website doesn't seem to work like most I'm used to. Most links produce a Not Found 404 when clicked on  & the online catalog is impossible to read (the text is microscopic). And there's no Search window. And there doesn't seem to be any way to order anything. Is it me? Do you have to order through a dealer?  That would make the cable what? $50.00?

I'm not sure.  I've asked the question to Sudco directly today.  If you'd like 2CV, i can order a couple of cables (if it's possible) and then you & I can work it out later.  PM me if interested.

Soon as I hear from them, I'll share what I find.

In the past, I have just called them and gave them part numbers, and they shipped them to me.
Try calling.

           Thanks,, Ace & DanB

           That's what I'll do when I've thoroughly convinced myself that ordering the TM is the path I want to be on.

            Why can't I just be happy with the CV? The bike runs perfectly fine, perfectly being relative, with it.

For the same reason you have the smaller battery, missing side covers, no catch can, opened the exhaust/intake --> You can't stop tinkering!! ... just like me  :o

Talked to Sudco... just call them and they will handle for you. Or you can use a local dealer to do on your behalf.

Dan's absolutely right!

Meanwhile, I have a slightly more random approach to throttle cables. I just bought a stock classic iron engine Bullet item. I then fitted a 90 degree bend ferrule to the carb top so as to direct it away from the underside of the gas tank, and simply trimmed the now over-length outer cable to suit. This was on a Dell'Orto PHF but ought to work on the TM32 Mikuni, especially as this is quite a tall carb, and room under the tank is limited.

Regards,

Adrian

I just used the standard Iron Barrel throttle cable.  I don't see why the need for something else.

The TM-32 I ordered from Amazon arrived and I thought I'd let others know that it is shipped with a 250 main, 45 pilot and a Q2 needle jet. It will be another $25 worth of jets, more if I order a few extra sizes, a cable if I can't piece one together $22, then an air filter. I may try to find a 58mm id hose that I can be used to connect the carb to the airbox.

No rush as there is a few inches of snow in my yard and the temperature just barely broke 30F.

Yes, all the TM32 carbs come jetted like that. They always need a complete set of different jets for our application.
I think the usual application is for some motocross bike.

             Because the ball end for the stock BS-29 on an AVL will not FIT the the slide lifter holder on a TM 32. You can't use the stock cable when going to a TM 32.

          I called Sudco yesterday to order a throttle cable, a 90 degree fitting for the top & a bunch of jets. They will not deal with me as a private citizen so I ordered my bunch of jets from JetRUs. Now I'm on my way to the jap bike store to have my old friend the parts guy order the cable & adjuster for me.

As for TM32 jets and settings, Bedlam's Electra-X ran very happily with those used on the C.I. engined Fireball! I'm sure they're still on Ace's web site somewhere...  ;)
