I am in the final stages of assembly,but the split headset has be flustered. So the throttle cable is meant to go on the front hole? And the wiring in the other one? Problem is that it doesn't fit in the hole and there's very pics on the net for this

Why doesn't it fit. Did the originals not have cable caps

dimensional difference between aftermarket cable and original cable. sometimes bigger is not better.

Remove the cap and feed it through. Replace cap and (I think you need to) add a top hat. IIRC that cap will be too big to fit into the socket in there.

Correct, you gotta get the top hat in from the backside of the lever perch. It's a bit tricky to get it to all line up but when you get it it's a solid connection.

What is the order of the cables on left side? Moving clockwise, it's 2 gear cables and then clutch. This is the way it seems to be on non vna pics. However, it looks wrong and would put tension on the clutch cable

Better pic. So the sketch is a sideways profile of the steering cable with the shift cables. Now I have squeezed the clutch cable to the left of the cables, as per sketch. However, there looks to be not much space there with the gear cables angling to the left also

I have my clutch cables on both Allstates running to the right of the shift cables. So opposite of how you have it.

Scooter looks great like the color! Don't see many split head sets.
