The kit i am buying comes with:

You may or should able to use your stock cable but u will need to fab/bend a exhaust either buy one fir a pit bike or have a exhaust shop bend fab one up and just get a muffler

I was able to use my stock throttle and cable but I only usedbit for a day and then my billet throttle came in and it seemed ok for that day

If u do get a billetbthrottle get a 90• cable for it tho

Do u want to try and use it on the new motor ??
On mine the shifter is held by a bolt behind it a 14mm and the part connected to the motor is a pinch bolt 10mm take those off and it should come off

Its a pinch bolt find the opening below where the bolt was should look like a split in the metal use a chisel or small screwdriver to open the split also try some wd40 or something to help and pry a little from behind the lever

i have two of those and they are awesome, i left mine dry cause i didnt want grease to hinder operation or become hard eventually, they work perfect
you can gut/work the stock pipe till you can get a better one
ya to be honest maybe the one on my 19 was a machined defect or something cuz I have another one and it is as smooth as glass but this one felt kinda scratchy on the return all the time so I just put a little bit of bearing grease on it inside very little and its been perfect since then but fie the money I love em now I just need to find a cultch lever assy that works just as nice all the less expensive ones I've tried are no good and other than that there over 150 for one lol I'll find one soon
