What’s the difference between 1985 and 1986 /1987/1988 Honda TRX250 rear foot brake cables? Partzilla shows the cable for my ‘85 as #43470-HA8-000 but different part numbers for ‘86/‘87/‘88 models. What could possibly have caused Honda to use different cable part numbers for these identical quads? What are the differences?

Thanks for reply. I don’t know why all the listings I see for TRX250 Fourtrax always state that the application is for 86,87. Never a mention of 1985.

The cable on my ‘85 TRX250 seems to be 1/4”-3/8” too short. It’s a stock cable but maybe the PO installed the wrong one? It’s stretched pretty tightly between the foot brake bracket and the integrated cable mount in the aluminum rear drum brake housing. There’s nearly no slack/loop at all. It’s not a matter of cable adjustment. The metal “shoulders” on the ends of the cable casing don’t reach far enough to provide support for the return spring to work well. My parking brake cable has no problem.
