Need some controls for a 06 roadstar

Im hunting for some stuff for my roadstar. I need a clutch cable. Extended if possible. Clutch handle and holder.
And the shifter linkage. From pedal to trans. I got to get rid of this sketchy suicide shifter.

When it comes to sourcing parts (big and small) I've got my approach down pretty well, as a result of rebuilding the Strat.

It's usually worth checking Craigslist first, then the for-sale section here on the forum, then eBay, then amazon, then partzilla, then custom bike sites like SS customs, phat performance, cruiser customizing, starbikes, etc.....

Just this week I picked up (new in the unopened boxes) a tri-line stainless steel front brake kit for $50 (normally $189), a set of stainless dual throttle cables for $60 (normally $92), and a stainless clutch line for $40 (normally $85).

boats.net has every stock part at pretty fair prices. Just bought a coasting enricher cover for $10 with $6 shipping, $25+ elsewhere. I bought my clutch perch and lever from there, and front master cylinder and lever, and mirrors. And the grizzly valve for the carb.

Select your year, model, and schematic.

Here's the levers:

I tried aftermarket when rebuilding, but honestly the stuff ended up not having a great fit, so I ended up ordering OEM. Much better fit and very well made.

And boats.net is owned and operated by partzilla.com so I check both and, oddly, usually find partzilla has a lower price.

It's a crazy world.....
