Mikuni throttle cable wont fit pedal end of GTi(e.g. there is nothing to hook on the foot pedal. + GTi throttle cable.. butterfly end is too big to fit the Mikuni. What do you guys and gals do about this ? Have i got to get a special throttle cable or is there some sort of modification?

I got my cable modified, cost me $20 to get it shortened with the correct end crushed on to fit my cbr quads by a marine shop, there wasn't any way to drill mine out and I needed the outer housing much shorter anyway.
Have a ring around marine shops or brake shops in your area if you can't drill out the hole on your mikuni's.

There isnt enough material to drill the hole to the size required. The Mikuni throttle cable butterfly end is like 3 times smaller than the GTi one.

yep same with my CBR itbs, you will have to find somebody that makes and modifies cables, if you really get stuck then I get it done for you but postage will be more than the cost of the cable.
