  • Throttle Cables

    Hi guys has anyone got a pic of how the throttle cables sit in the handle bar housing and is it possible to disconnect the cables from the carbs without taking the plate that holds the o rings in

    Don't have a pic, it's a little tricky, but can only go one way. If you put on backwards, it wont work.

    Helps if you loosen brake perch so you can rotate out of the way to help hook cables up.

    I'm not quite sure about this one? The cables hook up to a rotating plate/reel in the center of the carbs. This is where you would disconnect them by pushing
    the little spring retainer off to the side. Disconnecting first cable and then rotating throttle plates to aid in removing 2nd cable.

      I'm pretty sure you have to disconnect the cables at the grip first.

            If you have reassembled and it is all fitting together and actuates the carbs then it's assembled correctly.

            Make sure reel "very" lightly greased and rotates freely.

            Make sure nothing binding, like grip on housing, grip on bar end etc. and clean under throttle tube.

            Make sure cable adjusted properly

            Make sure cable "routed" correctly. Check manual for correct cable routing.

            Other then that, I find it's pretty hard to clean and lube the cables themselves, If all the above still
            doesn't work, the cable internals might be dirty and I would get a new set of cable.

              Yes, lots of things can cause a slow return.
