Could some one please confirm that it goes between the fork tubes. A picture would be fab.
It does go between fork tubes.
See 4 attached pictures for correct routing. Take note that these pictures were done for the later K1200RS having the optional electronic cruise-control - these have 2 throtlle cables (pull - push/return).
The routing on earlier models is the same, but you just have the "pull" cable.
The black/white picture is taken from a Service-Bulletin because I could not find one from that side in my own database of pictures.
