Proper Throttle & Clutch Cable Routing? SES Stop Protector issues...

recently had some work done, new clip ons, throttle parts including a new twin throttle cable and the ses lock stop protector on my 2012 daytona 675.. was going fine until recently, when the throttle cable has snagged twice on the stop protector whilst trying to turn right… extremely dangerous as i’m sure you can imagine.

i’ve tried to adjust it back, but it is still looking pretty dangerous, my question is what is the proper cable routing for the throttle and clutch cables?

never had this issue in 8 years of these bikes, but then i've only just been using the SES protector…. wondering if they’ve installed the throttle cable wrong..

heres a pic of how mine is atm. as you can see at a left turn the twin throttle cables are dangerously close to the stop protector.. when you turn right, its in danger of getting snagged and stopping you halfway thru turning right….

im thinking i should run it between the ignition cables and the ignition barrel, or over the much more rigid clutch cable. this is just ridiculously dangerous as it is..

I would have to look, but from memory the throttle cables SHOULD run to the right of the triple tree... I would not ride the bike until proper routine is completed. It is easy enough to do right the first time, and on your own.

Let me take a look and report back tomorrow.

The clutch cable looks OK. That is the OEM routing, but I changed it after also installing SES plates to prevent it getting pinched.

The throttle cables need to go on the right of the snorkel, as @Ditch Doctor said.

the snorkel as in the plastic air intake thing? im not sure how i can get the throttle cables to the right of that? it comes straight up against the left of the frame and headstock.. thats why i was kinda thinking at least run it through the loop created by the ignition cable and barrel..

any pics of how i should properly route the throttle with this ses protector?

Yeah there is a big hole in the front of the frame for the air intake. Your throttle cables are routed to the left of it, they should go to the right. My bike is stripped down so it’ll show the routing easily. I’ll get pics for you tomorrow morning, it’s 9:30 PM here now.

It goes to the right per the manual. Take a look at this. If you have the manual look at page 1.55.

That looks like a 3rd gen with the cable retainer on the headstock but yeah, same spot.

Oops sorry. I assumed since you were talking about your bike he also has a 3rd gen. That is wrong. Pre-13 go to the left just like he has it but should be on top of the clutch cable. It can not be routed to the right. 13+ Street and Daytona have different throttle cables and routing both being on the right side. Pre-13 are on the left.

that schematic is for a 2013+.

thanks, pics would definitely help, bit lost. i literally cant see how throttle could go down the right hand side of the headstock on a 2012..

its correctly going over the snorkel and through the left hand side of the triple tree as in the service manual:

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/80...page=52#manual

but this is alone is no longer gonna be suitable with the ses protector fitted.
