Thinking of replacing throttle cables on 03 LT.

Read many of the threads. Is it possible to use the old cables to pull the new ones through?

Just replaced mine and that's exactly what I did.

Using vinyl electrical tape, I connected the bottom end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable and gentley pulled on the old cables from below, one at a time. Perfect fit. The cables even landed next to the frame clip near the forks (that gets the new zip tie) just like the pic shows in the BMW bulletin. Couldn't be any easier.

Anyone have a copy of the BMW Bulletin? :)

Caution: Don't use the Part Numbers off this old bulletin !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also ignore the last pic on page 3 depicting the OLD style throttle grip guide! The rest of it is good to go.

Here’s the best detail I found on BMWLT on the upper end of this operation. Absolutely impressive documentation by Schweintechnik

Feels like you add powerrrrrr

:dance: Definately a good upgrade to the new cables. Smoother throttle control and saves the hands from getting that tight feeling. Makes the bike feel like it gained a few horse power
