MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT 61
With the engine idling, turn the handlebar both
ways and check if handlebar movement changes
the idle speed. If so, the throttle cable may be im-
properly adjusted or incorrectly routed, or dam-
aged. Be sure to correct any of these conditions
Operation with improperly adjusted, incor-
rectly routed, or damaged cables could result
in an unsafe riding condition. Be sure the
control cables are adjusted and routed cor-
rectly, and are free from damage.
