They are on the right side of the bike sorta hidden behind the right frame spar. If I remember correctly I took the tank off along with the right side faring. You should be able to see the problem, broken or frayed cable end right away. Just be sure to replace both cables other wise you'll be doing it again. Also the cables are different one short one long be sure to replace them accordingly. I'm sure there is a much better write up for this on this board some where I'll look for it and repost it if I find it.
