Default Re: How do I shorten the throttle cable?

If Benzo solder's for pipes, you can use it, but you will have to find some rosin flux to help clean the joint. Don't use acid-based flux like you would on pipes. The acid will corrode the cable. You would be better off buying some rosin-core solder from Radio Shack. Also, don't use a torch to heat the joint. Use a soldering iron (electric or butane with a soldering tip).
