Default Re: Nitrus Oxide or no? + throttle cable fix?

You should remember that soldering requires an absolutely clean surface. If there is any oil, grease, rust, or anything except clean metal the solder will just bead up and roll off. Clean the cable well before trying to solder. Brake cleaner or any good oil cutting solvent that doesn't leave a residue should work.
I like to use a 1/4" piece of brass tubing, 1/16" inside diameter, for the end instead of relying on just solder...but that's just me.
