Nice looking bike. On parts for your cables look at powerlet cables great stuff reasonable price.
As a SS900ie owner what parts you seeking maybe I can point you in a direction.

900ss buying advice

I'm in the market for a 900SS for a Walt Siegl styled cafe racer project. I'm trying to decide between a 2001 900SS ie vs a 96 900SS CR. If condition and cost are the same would one be better for a cafe project bike based on things like handling, issues (frame?), engine, performance, suspension, brakes etc.

IMO I'd use a carbie model as the rear sub-frame is flatter than the ie models. Most of the cafe racer ss are carbie versions for this reason.

  • Sidestand interferes with clean gear change operation
  • mirrors on fairing are useless
  • Rear brake caliper appears to be seized
  • Wiring from battery gets hot when starting motor (I know - replace the wiring with heavier gauge...
I've had a bit of a search online for parts suppliers and I'm sure there is a reference on this site, but if anyone (esp. in Oz) has a favourite supplier, I'd appreciate the link.

Looking forward to participating in the great forum and learning more about my bike.
Good looking bike, I wouldn't try to rebuild the Rear caliper the cost for a New one on my bike was $62 US funds..
