New-Style Throttle Cables

I have new-style throttle cables on my 2001 LT (see picture) that came with the bike (I bought it used). I am trying to adjust them. Does anyone know how to do that, or know where to get instructions for the new-style cables?

Why do they need adjusting? What's it doing?

They can be adjusted at the grip.

Re: New-Style Throttle Cables

I just adjust them untill there is a little "slack" in each one. If the "closer" cable is tight it will kick off the cruise.

And if it is too loose, it won't (at all)...
