Slinky Glide cables

Slinky Glide LogoEarlier this year Wemoto became the exclusive distributor for Slinky Glide cables.

Replacing cables with the original equipment has always been expensive, and the aftermarket is filled with cheaper but poorer quality cables. It’s a false economy to buy a cheaper cable if you need to replace it sooner.

Slinky Glide choke, clutch, speedo, tacho and throttle cables are available for a huge range of models and the listings are constantly expanding.

Either way can become very expensive.

Fortunately, there is a far easier alternative that few people know about.
