Cable routing DT1 #1
Can someone post up a posture of their cable routing for a DT1? I’m going around in circles trying different ways. None seem good.
Do all the cables route between the headlight and handle bars or do some go around the side of the headlamp?
The front brake cable is troubling the most. It seems like there’s too much cable swinging around.
Thanks for any help!

If it has two wheels and an engine, I'll ride it.

Cable routing DT1 #2
From what I've seen from the brochures and manuals for the DT and RT1, 2 and 3, they all go between headlight and handlebars. I have attached a link below to the DT1 brochure stored in the Tech Library here which shows this.

On the later DT and RT2 and 3, there is a clip that bolts on to the lower fork clamp and in to which the speedo and front brake cable are a push fit into. However, I have not seen a parts manual for the DT/RT1 and so I can't say if these models definitely have it or not.

I can't post pictures yet but on my 71 RT1 pretty much all the cables go down right below the ignition switch, so in between the ignition switch and the handle bars. Sometimes the cable we get can be a little longer, did you check the old cable to new one?

Thanks for the help, the cables do route down behind the speedo and tach. Except for the tach and speedo cables themselves.
I should have learned by now to snap a pic before taking assemblies apart. Especially when it’s going to be three weeks before it gets put back together.
Thanks again for your guys input. It’s like having a computer on hand just for Yamahas!
Got it done last night, finally.
