    Hi just seeing if anyone has fitted a mikuni to a wla with the original bars. can't workout how to fit the cable as ist is ball end at both ends. do I remove 1 of the ends or cut a slot in the bar end nut to allow the cable to go through it. or do i she the original cable and modify the carby end somehow. I have the reverse spiral twist grip so the throttle is pull not push.

    What would you want to fit a mickey rooney on a WLA for?
    Nothing wrong with a linkert if it is set up right.
    A MR wont increase a wla to perform any better.
    It will always be a wla and is what it is.

     im running a mikuni vm34 on my wla, heres a few photo's.. im using an internal throttle cable, through the bars as origonal, (cable not wire)..
    the last photo shows the end l cut (carby end) the small alloy ferral is a 1/8th pop rivet slid off its nail cut to lenth slid over the cable and a dob of solder on the end,
    it fits the slide perfectly,im also running the "j slot" cleaner so you don't really see the carb...it runs a whole lot better than the linkert, and at $130ish is a whole lot less,
    the throttle cable you will find is trial and error fitting....
