Universal Switches and Throttle Cables
« on: Sep 08, 2018, 14:34:40 »
Hi, longtime lurker, first time poster. This isn't strictly an electrical question, but...
I want to replace the original handlebar switches on my CJ360 with generic ones from ebay. I'm finding that most of them are designed for one throttle cable only. Can anyone point me to a low-price switch that accepts dual throttle cables? I guess another alternative would be to convert to a single throttle cable. Any comments pro or con about that idea? Thanks.

On my 360, I ended up going with just the single throttle cable.

Thanks Sonreir, I think that's what I'll do. My throttle return has always been kind of sluggish, but I've got new cables for this project so hopefully it will snap back nicely without the push cable. Too bad I bought both cables, but it won't be the biggest mistake in my parts bin. ::)

I ran a single cable on the my last 360.  Used a spring to return the throttle.
