1000rr 08 where do throttle cables go?

I need to replace my throttle cables and have the news ones fitted on the handlebar, but have no idea how to thread them through or indeed where they go. I assumed they went under the air filter, but no! What is the best way to the throttle body, to disconnect the old and thread though the new?

Re: 1000rr 08 where do throttle cables go?

I would always use the old cable to thread a new cable. To be sure to get it routed correctly. First replacing one cable, then replaceing the other.
I have not done this myself on my cbr1000rr08, but after a quick look in the shop manual it looks like you will need to remove the top shelter, lift the tank and remove the air cleaner housing to get to the point where the throttle cables are attached to the throttle body.
And what happened to the old throttle cables. It is a little early for needing new ones.

Cheers ... Fred

Brands Hatch happened to them! I did as you say, but under the air filter is bodywork/frame, cannot get to the cables, they are below that. That is why I am posting this.
