    I can see the difference cause your switching but look into the length of the cabe for both the twist obviously has more trave where the thumb is limited on space in the housing. I can see keeping the motor section of cable. But you may need a new cable going up to the bars. Is it possible to be done, yes. How. Idk. Ask muggzy
