  • Adjusting trottle cables

    Hello all,
    Tried during the weekend install heated grips on my R* 2001. Unfortunately on the throttle grip the plastic piece inside (with two links connected) is broken. The replacement piece has a bit differently located the two link holders (sorry hard for me to describe pls see the pics )
    The top link is a bit short so tried to adjust it a bit on the extension screw but it wasn't enough. I saw on the Partsfish website there is some adjustment on carburetor side. Do I need remove the tank and air filter to reach the links?
    Thanks Jiri

    Yes, remove the tank and if that doesn't give you enough room remove the air cleaner, there should be plenty of adjustment at the carb. To keep it smooth there needs to be just a little play in the pull cable. I adjust the return cable then the pull cable and loosen just enough until throttle is smooth. Don't know it that is the right way but works for me.

      What Mikey said about removing the tank, and if needed, the air cleaner too. To disconnect the cables at the carb, completely loosen the locknut so you have plenty of free play, then slip the barrel ends off the carb. After that, you should have plenty of play to slip the barrel ends at the bar into the new throttle, then install back in carb and adjust. There should be no tension on the cables, but you shouldn't be able to turn the throttle more than about a 1/4 inch before it begins to turn at the carb.
