So my idle throttle cable broke and I'm trying to find a replacement. The part number I want is N0308.1AK.
I found one on Ebay that has part number N0308.1AM. I can see one end is a little different than my broken one but I wondering if it will still work. The "1AM" version has a couple of adjustment nuts whereas the "1AK" does not.
Anyone know if they are interchangeable?

they are different at the throttle body. that being said i bought an 08+ and instead of returning them i modified my throttle plate to make them work on my 07. i think the newer design has a better elbow at the throttle body
then i think i broke the plastic end at the grip when putting on my handlebar muffs

If it's the inner cable that broke you could replace the inner with a new one and a new barrel on one side.
Use a soldering iron and clean tin and it's a piece of cake when you take your time!

ive replaced the cables and reused the jackets before. made a little mold for the barrel ends in my neighbors garage cuz all i had was a shed at the time
there's also replacement barrel ends, but i feel better about soldered barrels instead of a set screw type ... cuz motorcycles aren't very forgiving if the controls suddenly fail
wait, you said idle throttle cable ... do you mean the throttle stop/idle set adjuster or the push/pull throttle cables that run up to the grip?
