Re: Early LT throttle Cable Recall
Tim, it seems to me there could have been two upgrades. The first upgrade and the subject of the service bulletin attached to my previous message, only addressed the cable shroud materials in 2003. From the picture it appears that the cables are routed in a sleeve below the handlebar cover, and that the throttle grip housing seems to be the original. From 2005 however, the cables include the transition piece that previously was on the throttle grip housing, as a metal guide on each cable sleeve end. To accomplish this the cover on the throttle grip body had to be replaced. From 2005 the cables no longer run underneath the handlebar cover in a sleeve, but enters the cover and runs inside as shown on the picture attached to my previous message. I think the 2005 modification is the one you really want.
You'll have to confirm with your dealer, but from the MaxBMW parts fiche these are the parts required for the mod:
a) Throttle Cable: 32737694490
b) Accelerator Cable: 32737694491
c) Twist Grip Mod Kit: 32727691990
The item names appear strange, but that's what it is called. One cable is for opening the throttles, the other for closing it. You'll also have to cut a hole in the bottom handlebar cover as shown on the picture above.
