New Style Throttle Cable adjustment procedure needed
does anyone have the correct procedure for the new cables with molded elbows? The procedure shown in the clymer manuals does NOT work on the new cables.
With the new design cables there is no way to check "free play" at the hand grip since with these cables, the adjustment is molded to the elbow. I spent a couple hours trying different methods to get the cruise to work and finally gave up in hopes of finding an answer here. It almost seems like the close cable is to short as does not allow any freeplay. The slightest adjustment starts to turn the throttle. I.e. you have more roll back spring tension and the switch closes on the TB's.
Thanks from a baffled wrench flipper
P.S. New cables are smooooooooth.
