Default Re: Throttle trouble.

It appears that your cable sheath is too long making the cable too short. I would try to trim the sheath about 1/2 inch. What I did is to pry the metal end on the sheath off without damaging it and stripped some of the plastic off of the steel coil. Then I used a sharp knife to bend the top of the coil out just enough to grab onto it with needle nose pliers and unwrapped it to my specified length. When done I slid that metal end cap back on the sheath.
