Emergency Throttle Cable Repair
« on: October 12, 2015, 04:00:39 pm »
I broke my pull throttle cable on the way to Barber and had to do some 'neck tech rigging to make it there.  You can switch the push cable to the pull cable at the carbs and on the grip.  Leave it in it's original position as it goes through the switch housing and put the plastic elbow from the pull cable in the switch housing without cable in it.  You will have a country mile of slack, but it will get you to the end of the ride.

Thanks to Murph for next day airing me a new set.  It probably would have made it home, but it is a lot less stressful if you aren't worried about your bike breaking down.
