I find myself riding home with others and my throttle cable breaks! No power no juice...talk about scary! I am new rider and in 2 weeks have racked up over 800 miles. While impressive the loss of power on the highway was a major scare. I have a 2003 model AutoGlide However the bike did have aftermarket risers put on the handlebars I have my bike being towed to a shop. My question is: What cable part do I need to get for repair because its longer than the standard due to the risers on the bars? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I bought this from great people (private sellers) and I imagine it wore out over time?,You need to make sure that you put a two cable system on the bike. We only have one length of cables. For the pullback risers we route the cables differently. You should contact a Ridley dealer for help with the parts. If you don't know a dealer you may want to get acquainted with the folks at Route 66 Ridley, 414.358.8441,,,

How do you change throttle cable on Yamaha big bear 4 wheeler


Remove the bodywork to gain access to the carb. Lay out the new cable in the same routing as the old. Compare the two to make sure the replacement is correct. Disconnect the old cable at both ends and connect the new cable the same way and routing that you've found the old one.
with the engine off, set the tension to remove excess slack, and check for smooth open and closing action. you must make sure it closes the carb butterfly or slide the instant you release the throttle. Careful not to crimp/pinch/k ink the cable or the throttle might stick open in use. That would likely be exciting and probably quite painful

How do I remove throttle cable on 2002 dyna super glide


REMOVAL
Loosen the cable adjuster jam nuts, screw the throttle cable adjuster until it is as short as possible, remove the two screws that hold the handlebar housing together to separate the upper and lower housings, unhook the ferrules and cables from the throttle grip and lower housing, remove the air cleaner assembly and disconnect the throttle cables from the carburetor, pull the cable from the housing by placing a drop of oil on the retaining ring that holds the cable in the housing, then firmly pull the bent tubing portion of the cable out of the housing using a rocking motion. The cables can be removed from the carburetor by pulling the outer housing away from plate above the throttle wheel and then with slack in the inner cable twisting the inner cable to allow the swaged end to release from the slot in the throttle wheel and then pull the inner cable out through the mounting plate hole.

If you will reuse the cable wash all components in non-flammable cleaning solvent, carefully blow all parts dry with low pressure compressed air, replace the control cables if frayed, kinked or bent, put one or two drops of oil into the housing of each control cable.

INSTALLATION
Apply a light coating of graphite to the handlebar and to the inside surface of the housings, attach the control cable assemblies to the lower housing, push the silver insert of the throttle cable housing into the hole in front of the tension adjuster screw, push the gold insert of the idle cable housing into the hole at the rear of the tension adjuster screw, install the adjusting screw, spring and friction pad in the lower housing if they were removed, position the throttle grip on the handlebar, place the lower housing on/over the throttle grip, position the ferrules and retaining rings over the cable balls and seat them in the throttle notches, fasten the upper housing to the lower housing using two screws tightened to 35-45 in-lbs (4.0-5.1 Nm), CHECK the throttle cable routing, on FXD, FXDL and FXDX models, the throttle cables are routed between the headlamp bracket and the front fork upper bracket and then under right side of tank to carburetor. On FXDXT models the throttle cables are routed through a wire form that is mounted on the upper fork bracket. On FXDWG models, the throttle cables are routed behind the front fork upper bracket, then under the right side of the fuel tank to the carburetor, install the throttle cables on the carburetor and adjust them at the handlebars and re-install the air cleaner. The throttle cables must be clear of steering stops and not be so tight that the idle speed will be changed when turned from steering stop to steering stop.

Throttle Cable Adjustment
To adjust the throttle cables turn the cable adjusters and jamnuts as short as they will go so that both cables will have zero adjustment at the start of the adjustment procedure. THEN with the front wheel pointing straight ahead turn the throttle grip wide open and hold it there, turn the throttle cable adjuster to lengthen the sleeve until the throttle cam just touches the cam stop. THEN tighten the adjuster jamnut and release the throttle. THEN turn the front wheel full right and turn the idle cable adjuster to lengthen the sleeve until the cable housing just touches the spring in the cable support sleeve. THEN recheck the adjustment by working the throttle grip to be sure the cable returns to idle position when released. If the cable does not return to idle, turn idle adjuster to shorten the sleeve until the correct adjustment is reached and then tighten the jamnut. The throttle control must operate freely without binding.

Electronic throttle control


I have a 2008 Road King Classic with (the first year) TBW (Throttle By Wire - replacing throttle cables) and have no problems with it, and it doesn't do as yours does, but acts smoothly like a cable system.

My first suggestion is to take the twist grip off (you have to remove the master cylinder and switch housing) and check it's bore, and the handlebar end it rides on, for any built up crud (rust, dried up lube, etc.).

Replace throttle cable


There are two cables leading to the throttle. Both have two pieces.
Cable 1 goes from the throttle about 12" long and connects to an adjustment piece joining it to cable2 which goes to the throttle body.
Cable 3 also goes from the throttle and is about 12" long and connects to and adjustment piece joining it to cable 4 which goes to the spring on the throttle body.
To change any of them you must loosen the adjustment piece until the ends can be removed from it.
Then to change cables 1 and 3 you have to remove the throttle cover on the grip. you will be able to see how they are removed. Then reverse these steps to install the new cable.
To change cables 2 and 4 in no more difficult but more time consuming as you will have to route these longer cables from the adjuster to where they connect to the throttle body.
When cables have been install and all parts reassembled you can carefully adjust the tension on the cables until the throttle responds the way you like it.
Hope this helps

I have a 95 1100 ACE. Everything worked fine for months, but this last weekend I left the lights on and the battery died. It wont charge with a trickle charger (20 hrs barely got lights on). When hooked to...


Here is my idea ...

If the battery is older than 24 months, I would replace it. When you left the lights on ... you drained it to the bottom. IF it takes a charge, it will be many hours at a trickle if you can bring it back at all.

That is my idea ...

Of couse you can do a voltabe check and a hydrometer check ... I think they will all point to a new battery.

Your battery can not be effectively charged by your alternator ... because for your alternator to work, you have to first put power into it (not self exciting). Since your battery is dead, that method will not work.

Too much slack in the throttle on my 2005 softail duece (fuel injected)


Ok, I'm not very familiar with fuel injected models because I don't work on them but they should have a throttle cable like anything else. In the cable somewhere (usually close to the throttle grip) it has an adjuster. There should be two cables, a throttle cable and an idle cable. The throttle cable is the cable towards the front of the bike at the throttle mechanism as it pulls the throttle open. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable to take most but not all the slack out of the cable. You must have a bit of slack in each cable for the throttle to work freely. Do the same with the idle cable nearest the rear of the bike.
Once finished, with the engine off, twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position and release it. It should snap shut. If it doesn't it's not adjusted correctly. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable until the throttle operates properly. You must get this right.

Failure to properly adjust the throttle cables could result in the loss of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death. If you are not sure of how to do this, find someone who knows how to do it. You don't want your throttle sticking on you.

Good Luck
Steve

How do i install the inner throttle cable on a 1973 flh and get the length right?


If you're talking about the old style throttle cable that is internal of the handlebar, it's pretty straight forward. Remove the throttle grip, the rollers and pin for the plunger. Pull the plunger out bringing the old throttle cable with it or at least out far enough to loosen the small set screws that lock the cable in. Now, run the new cable through the outer housing. put the end of new cable into the plunger and tighten the set screws. Replace plunger into the handlebar, replace pin and rollers, replace throttle grip. Now, set the throttle to full closed posititon. Move carb throttle lever to full closed position. With throttle cable through clamp tighten screw securing cable. Check for proper operation of throttle mechanism.

Couple of questions from a new RS owner


#1 As these are an injected bike they do not need to be blipped on start as it reprograms the ECU to think that the slight blip setting is the normal closed according to the computer. You may need to get it reset at your dealer unless you have an OBDII or a Triumph GameBoy. #2 Change out the oil to a semi synth. Your choice on brands. I'm not starting You'll find that it will improve the shifting as they aren't the smoothest with old oil. I use Motul 15-40 semi synth myself FWIW I change mine every 5000 kilometres (about 6 months) but go on k's travelled and not duration myself.
