Making/Shortening Throttle Cables

I got a couple questions about making throttle cables out of BMX brake cables, so I thought I'd try and put together a quick tutorial. This leaves out some stuff, like cutting your housing to the proper length, adapting a BMX cable to fit a solid macoroni thingy out of the throttle, etc. But maybe it'll help someone make or adjust a cable. If you can shorten and make a new end on an old throttle cable then you might save a few bucks. Buy the longest cables you can at the swap for cheap and then just modify them to work.

Roll your mouse over the "notes" part and it should show the captions that explain each photo/step.
