Re: 08 Throttle cable fitting

Have just done this on the weekend. Hardest part was getting the lower butterfly cable out and then in.

Was easiest when working on the left side of the bike with a hand under the frame (working the underside of the butterfly attachment point), small screwdriver in the other hand, and good looking assistant holding the torch from above.

Wont be able to do it working from the top.

Fairings were off already, so have to strip down to underside of airbox etc - good couple hours work.

Adjust up the tensions on the cables, then check that the butterflies dont move with the handle bars turned either lock.

This model has the metal throttle housing where the threads are different sizes, so cant go in backwards which is pretty handy

I went with the oem ones as its mainly road use, its seems its around a 2 hour job to fit them, looking forward to that good thing is i now know this bike inside out it takes me around 5 mins to strip the fairings
