Re: Throttle useless Another problem I had was when I was installing the kit itself. The cable for the carb came preassembled, so I never gave any thought to actually making sure it worked right. After hooking up the cable to the throttle handle something didn't seem right....it was way to tight. If I had left it, my carb would've been stuck wide open. What I did was shorten the casing on the cable by an inch and that solved that problem. How is your cable?
