Re: newbebie, Throttle problems
I don't know the year it was changed but I can show you what to look for. Any kind of lubrication is not recommended for these cables. The throttle is heavier than on other bikes but there are things that can contribute to it being too stiff. The new cable design helps. There is also the possibility of gunk under the throttle and the heated grips turn it to tar. In order to get the grip off, you have to thread the electrical wires out from a hole up at the front of the bars. Tie a string on it as you pull it out so it is easier to get back in.
You will need to get the underside plastic cover to the right side as there is a hole in it ( or make a hole in your own ) for routing the new cable design if you find one of the LT's have been updated. Here is what to look for in the pics below. One of my new style pics seems to have one the return cable missing but it still gives you an idea of what to look for.
