Bendix carburetor throttle cable

#1

I just had my 1950/64/57 Panhead fixed up and the guy at the shop put on a 1996 front end so I could get a disc brake. Now it has a hydraulic brake reservoir on the right side handlebar and the throttle system in the grip is a duo-cable system, but the carburetor it's going to is a Bendix (Zenith) carb.
The problem seems to be that the throttle cable is not returning completely because of a bent pin/shaft on the accelerator pump and it's fraying the throttle cable. (At least that's the explanation from the mechanic at the shop.) Anyway, can a duo-throttle cable throttle be made to work successfully with the single cable Bendix carburetor? Thanks.
