 Post subject: Composimo Stretch Question
PostPosted: Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:48 pm 
Installed my Composimo stretch kit today and have a question for those of you with his kit or any stretch for that matter. The install was straight forward but I'm having a hard time figuring how to route the rear brake cable. I thought I could use the original cable if I had aftermarket bars which I do. I've got the Accel bars that Smelly used to sell. Looking at it I've taken all the zip ties off and even pulled it out of the metal holding mounts that are placed underneath the speedo and on the stem.
So with that said anybody have any suggestions or tricks on how to route it?

You'll have to reroute it different under the floorboard, kind of a PIA but thats how I made mine work with the stock cables...

You will definitely have to re-route it over the frame, and under the floorboard. You may also want to trim some of the ribs under the floorboard to allow it to not be crushed between the floorboard and the frame sections.


Another fairly inexpensive option, is to purchase the extended brake cable sold by japan.webike.net

http://japan.webike.net/products/2074246.html - Brake Cable

It's about $40 +shipping, and mine arrived very quickly... i actually purchased the throttle cable as well for my own bike:

http://japan.webike.net/products/2075153.html - Throttle Cables

With those cables, you can route them under the frame, just like factory... But they are not -required- to make it work... they do make it far simpler though.

Thanks. I haven't even messed with the throttle cables yet. Do they need to be re-routed also?

i had to buy the cable, no good way to do it, i actually rode mine for a week or so with cable on top of floor,until cable came. The cable from webike is awesome perfect length and just like factory. My throttle cable had plenty of room after i rerouted it, sorry not much help.

i have a 5 inch stretch and i used my PG extended brake cable, it's about 6 inch longer then stock. once rerouted had plenty left over. works on a 8 inch stretch also since some one already tried it.

as for the throttle man what a bitch. if not done right it can get hanged up so be careful and test it before button it up.

I helped installed a composmio stretch about 8 hrs to do
would of been nice to have instructions, either on the website or a paper to follow. Have no idea what to torque anything too, and a few times left us scratching out heads how things mount.
The supplied rear shock bolts, at least thats what we figure they were for are smaller diameter so the shock has slop. Ended up using stock bolts, worked just fine

we tried our best to reroute the cables, and got them to work even with using low bars but had to notch the black plastic for the rear brake cables up by the bars. Sharp turn will still apply light rear brakes and throttle is still little sticky after numerous attempts of routing that cable. Doesnt seem to have an effect riding but when turned off it will stay stuck at full throttle, may be a hazzard when starting
Maybe lubing them would help, not sure.

what does the torsion bar do, I see it lowers and raises it but is there a correct setting to place it at?

also had a hard time trying to figure a good way to mount the license plate
would of been nice if a bracket or something was offered for that too because its drilled into the plastic brake light area and im not sure if it will last there unless we get a piece of metal inside to act as a stiffener


other then that the mount looked to be very high quality parts and welds

Are those what you need to replace the stock brake/throttle cables if you do an extension with the stock bars?

we put those in recently but with lower bars and they were just long enough
im thinking with stock bars it may or may not work, we were very close with the lower bars

But we routed back under frame, so maybe with stock bars and route under the floor it may work fine

but I just rode the stretched last night and it handles very well even with the lower bars
was very comfortable to drive

Mine is tall with stock bars so it was very different for me, but no problem
