Re: Throttle cable snapped
Thanks a lot for those documents, made the job easier.
I didn't take off the grip because I didn't have to remove it for the new cable, and it didn't feel like it needed lubrication.
Installing the cable was pretty easy except when it came time to put the cable on the throttle switch, its very tight in there but my wife was able to stick it in, since her hands are much smaller.
I lubed up the cable by the grip, and its still a little stiff. This design is horrible. I think it will break in during the next few days.
The cable I bought was used, and I noticed 1 or 2 broken strands on the cable by the grip connector, and its making me a little nervous. Do u think that would be a problem down the road? I don't want the cable to snap again!
