I've seen a write up or two saying that you can leave the stock cables on. And If i remember right that one was on a 600rr.

Did you adjust them at throttle bodies as well??

Because you don't have to replace the throttle cables...

I just addjust my throttle cable and i am very happy! Bike goes from zero to wooooott in second with the stock tube, why would i want more?i would like to know is that good for street use? I mean, if you are not easy on throttle on the street can put you in trouble?
Does the guys that have the r6 tube are more happy with the throttle responce on the street?
I want to ask that because lots of riders like that mod!

You can fit the HRC QAT tube using the stock cables too.
The real reason for using an R6 tube is that it's cheaper
