Looking for good throttle cables was created by j_omega
Right now my Rotax 912 is using bowden cables for the throttle and carb. However, living in the midwest, I have discovered that these have the tendency to get moisture inside them, leading to corrosion and freezing. After find the throttle completely stuck, I have pulled the bowden cables out of the plane. Now, I am looking for a more water-proof alternative to replace them with. However, these are not listed as parts in the official 912 parts list. Something like this comes to mind, but I'm not sure they would work with the dual throttle/carb.

McFarlane makes a nice vernier throttle cable setup for the 912. You would have to check the specs , but I believe they are teflon lined cables.
