Default Re: throttle cable too long

Another tip - before attempting to feed the cut cable back into the housing, you'll wanna be sure a strand won't snag and fray. If it's a clean cut often all you'll need to do is gently rotate the cable in the same direction the strands are wrapped - but I find that a lil chunk of shrinkwrap (normally used for electrical connections so I've a bunch anyway) is just the ticket to keep the strands from catching on the cable housing and destroying it.

I've also used a wrap of masking tape (ofc degreaseing is needful) and no doubt a light touch of solder is the best way - but I'm open to other suggestions lol
