Maintenance and Adjustment
Use of the motorcycle with incorrectly
adjusted, incorrectly routed, sticking or
damaged throttle cables will interfere with
the throttle function resulting in loss of
motorcycle control and an accident.
To avoid incorrect adjustment, incorrect
routing, or continued use of a sticking or
throttle checked and adjusted by your
authorized Triumph dealer.
Check that the throttle opens smoothly,
without undue force and that it closes without
sticking. Have your authorized Triumph
dealer check the throttle system if a problem
is detected or any doubt exists.
Check that there is 0.08-0. 1 2 in (2-3 mm) of
throttle grip free play when lightly turning the
throttle grip back and forth.
If there is an incorrect amount of free play,
adjustments made by your
Triumph dealer. However, in an emergency,
throttle adjustment may be made as follows:
1. Opening cable adjuster
2. Opening cable adjuster locknut
3. Closing cable adjuster
4. Closing cable adjuster locknut
Release the locknut on the 'opening' cable
Rotate the 'opening' cable adjuster at the
twist grip end to give 0.08-0. 1 2 in (2-3 mm)
of play at the twist grip. Tighten the locknut.
