I have the GenMar up and back = 1" up and 1 3/8" back. I think the Motech are the opposite: more up and less back. There was enough clearance until I needed to adjust the throttle play. Now that the cable is stretched, I needed to tighten the play...and that's when it got too tight. A friend suggested I might find some slack by adjusting the linkage under the tank, so that's what I'll try first.
mokusbajusz, the only stress on the cable occurs when I do a full lock to the right, so I'm not too worried that it's a dangerous problem. I have 6k miles on the bike, so I doubt the barbacks caused 100% of the stretch on the cable. They're worth adding, so I'm willing to do some tinkering to make it work.
