Re: 85 Nighthawk 700 Throttle Cable Broke

Any suggestions or tricks? Or do I have to pull the air box and carbs half off to access the cable ends? Thanx for any suggestions.
I use long-handled, long-nosed pliers bent at various angles for these jobs.
Sort of like these but you should be able to find them in sets of three or four of different bends.
