I’m wanting to switch my twist throttle to a thumb throttle as I do mostly trail riding. Do I need to get a different cable or will the one I have work with the new thumb throttle? I ride a 06 450

All you should need is likely the cable and a thumb throttle off a 400ex or 04-05 450r. The throttle safety is already bypassed most likely (keeps the throttle from running away). Bonus you can use a TRX90 throttle lever (its longer) more leverage than the others.
