Throttle Cable Adjustment
Inspect the throttle grip for smooth operation in all

ble in accordance with the Periodic Maintenance
Check that the throttle grip has 2 ~ 3 mm (0.08 ~
0.12 in.) of play and turns smoothly.

B. 2 ~ 3 mm (0.08 ~ 0.12 in.)
If the play is incorrect, loosen the locknut on the

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
before riding.
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.
