Default Can I Switch Throttle Cables

Morning everyone. I'm in the process of eliminating the controls on my bars and I have a quick question in regards to the throttle. I'm replacing the throttle housing with something like Biltwell's Whiskey Throttle. I say something like it because I have concerns spending $100 on a product with questionable quality control issues. My problem is every other throttle housing I'm finding only uses the threaded end style cables, not the snap in style that my 2001 883 has. So does anyone know if I can either use an older threaded end style cable on my bike, or any recommendations on a different throttle housing that accepts the snap in style? Thanks!

YES - As long as the carb end of the throttle cable matches to the Sportster CV40 carb, the end that goes to the throttle grip should match what is required there...

Do check that the cable you purchase is designed for the SPORTSTER version of the CV40 carb. I believe the BT version of the CV40 has a different cable mount which requires the internal cable to extend longer past the sheathing than used on the SPORTSTER version...

Ok thanks for the info! I figured the end might fit but I didn't think about the amount of cable coming out of the sleeve. I have summer good ideas now moving forward, thanks again!

I just added a section to the Sportsterpedia regarding the throttle/idle cables:
