Cyclebrakes Mailing Label


High Efficiency - "HE" is a nylon coating on the inner-wire and is lubed with a silicone lube to help reduce clutch lever effort.  HE is available for Clutch applications only. Please specify at time of quote request AND at time of order. This is really worth the small additional cost in our opinion and we get lots of positive feedback on how it makes the cable operate more smoothly & efficiently.

Warranty Assistance - We are here to help you after your purchase. Repair & replacements are per manufacturers warranty and inspection in terms of defects in material or workmanship – no reimbursement for freight – inspection times will vary but usually take 1-3 days. Shipping is charged for returning your parts.

Custom Made Applications

Custom Orders - Modifications to the bike (for example, aftermarket parts that may impact the lengths and/or fittings) will likely result in needing custom lines. Color options & changes to the cables require custom order. There is no return and no refund for custom orders.

Pricing - Estimated costs vary on the individual cable being quoted based on lengths, complexity and fittings used. Custom fees do apply and are considered no refund.  Shipping is charged for returning your parts.

Production Times - There are two production times available: Regular or Rush (fee applies).

Regular Production usually is:
8-14 business days Busy-Season (Mid-January to Mid-September)
3-5 business days Off-Season (Mid-September to Mid-January)
Rush Production usually is: 1 business day

Length changes to Barnett Part Numbers

The most common request we receive is for over or under stock length cables for various handlebar conversions. While we cannot tell you what length will work for each individual application, we can make the cables any length that you require. The simplest way to order custom length cables is to simply tell us how many inches over (+) or under (-) the stock length you need the cables to be and what type of casing you desire.

How to order for custom applications or applications not listed in catalog

If you are in need of a custom cable or a cable that is not listed in the Barnett catalog, you will need to do one of the following:

1. Send us your original cable(s) or
2. Submit a drawing using the custom measurement guide:

1) Send us your original cable(s), if possible. We will duplicate the cable per your instructions. We are located in the same city as Barnett, Ventura/CA.  This means we are able to drop off and pick up cables direct at the manufacturer. We offer you special attention & consideration on each inquiry.

Letter to include in box: Specify in the clearest way possible what you need done to length of casing, length of inner wire, and/ or fittings. Include your NAME, PHONE NUMBER & e-mail address, Year/ Make/ Model of motorcycle, COLOR OPTION & what changes to make.

Use of Stock Cables Parts: Please specify if you authorize use of your stock cable parts. Barnett has a wide variety of elbows, ferules, and fittings but some OE parts are not available.  Applications sent in will likely be chopped up if Barnett needs to reuse elbows from the stock line.

Re: Barnett Clutch and throttle cables

Hi Shirley!
You and I dealt with each other on July 12, 2006 for Barnett clutch and
throttle cables. You asked for a jpeg of my bike when I finished it. I wanted to let you know I have entered my first judging competition on October 1, 2006, and won 2 trophies with it! It is a 2001 Aprilia Falco, completely customized, and you are included in that customization! Many thanks for all your professional
and FABULOUS help!
