fatdaddy, that is Norm from this very forum.
Here is his thread, with a little help from Ilikeabikea.
Norm shortening a throttle cable

Speaking for myself, I found that a propane torch got the cable too hot. A butane torch works perfectly.
Thanks GearNut, I found it on the "other" site with a youtube link. Thats where I saw it first.
And yeah, I use a small butane torch myself.
