I played around with ti some more and cut the threads on the 90* adjusted to get it shorter to get some more cable length but still can't get it to bottom out. I might have to look at the KX or another cable. I am using 1/2" risers and CR fat bars (not cut)

The standard Lectron cable offering should work for you I'm betting, it works for the older Lectron carb but could use a 90° elbow also, but should work great with a Motion Pro Turbo throttle or other aftermarket pulley type throttle. The pulley adds a bit of length but gives the cable an easier life due to less friction.

Sorry you had to buy the Lectron elbow to find it was too long.
I do have an extra Motion Pro KX cable that may work for you if you can wait for me to mail it.
That or the Malossi short radius 90° elbow should be what you need.

Lectron actually sent the elbow free of charge otherwise I would've gotten the same as yours. How much do you want for the KX cable, I would buy it from you vs ebay or motion pro directly?

Ended up buying a motion pro KX cable for $12, once it gets here I will get it installed.

I didn't like how the 90 elbow came off the carb and mated with the throttle cable. I thought I would heat up the 90 and bend it to a less aggressive angle, when I went to bend it, it snapped right at the 90.

I went ahead and ordered the Sudco 40* https://www.ebay.com/itm/394000427103 which comes of the carb at a way better angle to the throttle cable, and I am back to using the stock KDX cable!

I will try and snap some photos tonight.

Was able to get out yesterday afternoon and test the new top end and carb, it was a whole lot of fun! I still need to do some tuning on the lectron as it seems to not like just cruising throttle at 1/4-1/3 twist.

One side of the carb does seem pretty full since it sits at a slight angle.

Hey Kevbot, thanks for the pics and video...any chance you have a pic of the top of the carb where the elbow and tank area are?
Long live the KDX and all hail King Fredette!

I got my Billetron Pro 38 installed the other day on my '98 220 with the vforce reeds.
Fitment is near perfect; tight but it fits.
Used stock throttle and throttle cable, everything backed off to the max.

Yeah I will grab some pics, getting the itch to ride with this nice weather we have been having. Need to finish up a couple things and get the carb tuned a little better. I have a dead spot on the low end power, idles great and up top it screams. Also ordered a boyseen rad valve since my boot might be leaking a bit with the Vforce 3.
