Any info on the best place to get a pull throttle cable ? Think yambits do them but are they any good?

Generally Wemoto do good quality cables. I've got a push one but not a pull one from them.

I use a pull one from Wemoto since two years and it is fine.
I also removed the push one : useless.

I was wondering about the need for a push cable. Given the strength of the carburetor springs it seems unlikely that they would ever stick open.

I dont use the push cable on stock carbs either, with no problems whatsoever.
