Hats off to Capitol - Service Dept
I couldn't bring myself to do my own throttle cable replacement, so took it in to Jon at Capitol. They have a process for doing the work in 2.5 hours rather than the service standard of 4.3 hours. It still wasn't cheap (total $350), but saved me a couple of hundred bucks. I had been waiting for something to fail so I could have it done as part of another job, but finally got tired of the blisters on my hands after a day of riding trying to twist open the unmoveable throttle. Now the throttle works like a charm and I've got to practice on throttle control as I keep opening it too abruptly. Anyway, Capitol came through once again and thought I'd mention their good work.
