your Aprilia dealer.
I've just changed mine as one of them broke a few weeks ago.
It took about 10 days to get them, and since it involves tank and air filter removal, I had my dealer do it.
Total cost £50, and half of it was for the two cables.
P.S. You can still ride the bike if one of them breaks, as I found out by using it for three weeks :-)

that's good to know, lol :)
had the tank and stuff off this morning as i finally got around to fitting my new K&N filter, so that's do-able. how much were the cables alone then?

I believe they were around £25.
I can tell you later on when I get home and see the receipt :-)
They are not the same, so make sure you buy two different ones!!
