The first pic is the location for drilling.
the second is a 3/32nd drill bit.Drill straight down 3/4"
The third is a 3/4"long 3/32nd tension pin.
4th is tension pin installed.
5th is throttle handle located as it rides in throttle housing.Good luck,Kip
I think that you are correct. It seems to me that the throttle handle is passing by the stop when I twist it forward. I took the throttle handle apart again and found a kink and then noticed that it seemed to be passing what should be the stop point when twisting forward. I fixed the kink and then reattached everthing. It now seems that as long as I am gentle when pushing the twist trottle forward everything is ok.

You, however, have given me another project for my bike and I will hopefully get to that upgrade when the weather frowns upon my riding.
