Question about 2003 Gas Gas EC 400 FSE Supermotard
Has anyone else had a problem with burning the throttle cable? I noticed when I purchased my fse400 that the cable was burnt and it got worse after taking it out on the first ride. It was running horizontally out from the throttle body and then between the radiator and the frame. This made it run very close to the pipe where it was coming out of the head. I am getting a new cable and don't want to make the same mistake. It could cause serious problems and strand me out in the bush.
I can't tell you how glad I am to hear of a problem my '05 FSE doesn't have! Mine won't melt the throttle cable to do that it would have to start (kick or electric) and then stay running (just shuts off now and then). Haven't dared take it more than 1/2 mile from home (couldn't push it back from any further) now it's warm enough that I don't want to push it at all so it will probably continue to gather dust until fall. I sure wish there was a dealer within a few hours ride who knew anything about them.,,
