Been there done that! It's part of the process. Routing your wires DOES affect cable length. So take that into account..

Version, just FYI in my tuck, I did two smaller holes on the left side. One for brake and one for throttle. Was nervous to do one large hole for both but either should work. I also tried to drill in between any of the cross castings so the frame still had as much rigidness as possible.


Awesome! Thanks for the tip!
Did it affect the cable lengths? Like GETSLIM?
I still have to try to route my cables.... Seems I'm in a constant assemble-reassemble situation, lol! It will probably be taken apart and mocked up at least three more times before paint! :wasted:

Curious where everyone gets their longer throttle cables........

I "cleaned up" my wiring back in 09. Now that the ruck is getting an overhaul this winter, an all out tuck will be underway.....among other things.

And GETslim, love the milspec wiring. Props.

Motion pro makes em exactly how you want them and for pretty damn cheap. That's where I got my throttle cable and brake cable made
to my exact specs.

Thanks. After posting I was sifting through my "bookmarks" and found a link to them from a while ago. I guess I already read about it once before, smashed the bookmark button, and kept on cruising. :ucrazy:

I'm still not sure on drilling holes in my frame. I'm 300lbs, so i'm attempting to be careful on how I modify. It may sound silly, but in the interest of safety (but still being able to mod) I am thinking about welding a small diameter tube to the underside of the rear frame and run wires in that.......drill holes in that. With a clean enough weld/fill job, it would just look like the frame is egg shaped. To joe public, they wouldn't even notice. Frame dexterity saved.

Thoughts? I understand it may add extra weight, but really........when I'm 300lbs already what is a 2 pound little pipe going to add that another cheeseburger won't?

Great thread! Will certainly try to run the wires through the neck. Really don't want to get crazy with extending wires yet.

Still running factory length cables although I'd love to extend the rear one some..seems to engage when the suspension flexed a lot..feels the rear brake drag some..

And that hole is the only hole drilled into the frame..where I've drilled. Is the thickest part of the frame so I'm not concerned about anything happening..

To me..if the rider is exceeding the factory 225lb limit..I highly suggest a front frame support like a chin bone for some peace of mind..

If anyone is concerned about drilling too large of a hole in the front frame, drill a couple in between each of the "x brace" castings... like I did. If you look at the front of the front frame, or feel for them you can get holes in between each of the x's and keep the frame's rigidness...

Damn slim that is the sexiest wire tuck I've ever seen. Didn't know this is what you did. Just read the whole thread because I finally have enough stuff to start a ground up build and I want to take my time and do it right. I hope to do a wire tuck, but I think I might be in a bit over my head.
