I have a feeling that I do not have my cables routed as stock. Been looking around and cannot find a routing diagram.

Anybody found one for our machines?

TIA!

Yes, I have one for my 1975 DT 400 in the back of the service manual. What bike are you working on?

Did you have any luck finding a cable routing diagram for the RT3? I cannot find one in any of the manuals or on the forums. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Good morning from the UK Sav.

I don't think that the diagram you are after exists.

What I did for my RT2 was to look at all of the old brochures and photos I could find, to try and piece together the routing for the various components. I took some photos for forum member Mauser and, when I get time (busy day of cricket today!) I shall upload them here for you.

If someone else posts what you need before then, then all well and good.

Hi, thanks for that. I have looked through the manuals & also the original dealers brochures & that has helped to figure cable positions relative to the tank bumpers, all appear to go over. If you have a pic of the cables going in the spaces around the ignition block, & the tacho cable route in relation to the left fork, would be much appreciated.

the clutch is different on 75, I have mine in front of tach/speedo bracket (gauges not yet installed so might have to change), going down right side of frame under coil to access hole, ft brake must b different as well, have mine rear of gauges, using top pinch bolt for clamp down to backing plate anchor, I'll have to ck if our models have a "coil screws" mounting bracket for throttle cable Y tube (mine didn't) I'll have to make one as even if our bikes didn't, it should is my guess, the remaining look to go the same as diagrams show. I'd like 2 make sure myself, but nothing binds, so.. anybody know on "badge bikes" for sure?

I'm confident there are experts on here that do know how the early cables were or at least should be routed... (Unfortunately, I'm not one of them)

I would like to suggest that all these questions on routing would be far more likely to receive answers if they were accompanied by photos of YOUR bike and YOUR routing...

This approach of posting photos and saying "here is what I have does it look right?" works pretty good for any question on this forum...

I don't think it's that the experts don't want to help... it's more that you are the only one that knows what you have and what you are looking at... and sometimes it's almost impossible to answer without seeing what you're working on.

There's also a risk of giving bad information and wrong answers without seeing the problem... lots of bikes have had parts swapped over the years or have been misidentified as to what they are... very common on the "badge bikes" where the same serial number prefix was often used for several quite different models...

And if that's not enough... posting pictures of what you have, right or wrong, will almost always help others either now or in the future.

Sharing photos of your situation is not "required" by any means... but if you are frustrated about not getting the answers you need sharing photos seems to provoke better and more responses.

Just a thought... :Buds

As promised Sav, please see below photos of how mine will be routed.

A couple (eg throttle cable) will need lifting and taping to the frame, but hopefully these are a good starting point for you.

From what I have seen from brochures, manuals and other literature, all of the wires and cables feed down between the clocks and handlebars.

Please note the small cable retaining clamp/clip that mounts on the left side of the bottom yoke.
