How do you remove a throttle cable from a carburetor?
Simply use your finger to lift up the part that the cable attaches to (it’s the part that opens up the butterfly’s) then with the other hand, use needle nose pliers to turn the gold, brass plug until it comes out of the butterfly. You will see that when it is out there is a small hole and a channel.
Does the throttle cable Go to the carburetor?
Install the opposite ends of the throttle cables to the carburetor or throttle body, tightening the threaded ends of the cable guides into the cable bracket completely. Slide the cables’ barrels into the valve catches and twist the throttle tube slightly to check that the valves open and close properly.
Are throttle cables universal?
In today’s modern vehicles, throttle cables are obsolete with the widespread use of drive-by-wire throttle pedal assemblies. Our universal throttle cable offerings fit most any application or engine type and mounting location.
How do I test my throttle cable?
Step 1: Locate the throttle cable. One end of the throttle cable is located in the engine compartment, attached to the throttle body. The other end is on the driver’s side floor, attached to the accelerator pedal.
Why do some motorcycles have two throttle cables?
If a throttle return spring breaks, the second cable actively shuts the throttles, saving you an unplanned launch into space.
Why is my throttle cable stuck?
Debris can get caught between the throttle tube and the handlebar, and cause it to stick. Another culprit happens at the other end of the throttle cable. Down at the carburetor, the cable gets stuck, so even when you rotate the grip to ease up on the throttle, it still stays open.
When should I replace my motorcycle throttle cable?
If your inspection reveals any damage, you’ll need to replace your throttle cables. You might also need to replace them to accommodate a different handlebar.
How tight should throttle cable be?
The accelerator cable tension is usually set so that 2-3mm of free play is present in the throttle grip. Once the correct tension has been applied, the lock nuts should be snugged and any dust covers should be slid back over the adjusters. Cables can be adjusted using the appropriate size wrench.
