SOURCE: Throttle Cables

I finally managed to get a throttle cable and an idle cable. How do you get the cables out of the throttle housing? I have removed the ends from the grip. Now I am faced with getting the throttle cable and idle cables through the cast metal hole in the bottom of the the throttle housing and then the new ones back up through. There is a shiny barrel clip-looking ferrul attached to the metal ball on the end of the cable that prevents it from fitting through that hole. As my shiny new $100 worth of throttle/idle cables did not come with ferruls to replace the existing ones I am assuming that there is some way to take those ferrules off the old cables and put the on the new ones. So I need to know how to take off/re-use those clips and/or am I SOL on being able to get this thing going without yet another delivery from Ridley? The cable end is removable. You don't need to buy new ones. Try a small pick to remove the cable from the housing.,,

SOURCE: Backfire out of carb!

Remove and clean the carbs. Clean the air filter and install new stock plugs. Re-mount the carbs and then balance and sync them. Now would also be a good time for a compression check. Valves and rings do give problems sometimes but these problems show up first as a lack of power. Since you didn't report a power problem I doubt if valves are the problem.

SOURCE: motor bogs when you give it gas

It is a fuel problem, it can be filter or rubber membrane,they are placed in the valve for fuel.

SOURCE: How do I remove the throttle to replace the cable

unscrew the top of the carburator and see if the spring is compressed when turning the throttle. If this has been done, you can reattach if not broken, if so replace cable. You might check that the throttle was replaced into the carburator the proper way, it can be 180 degrees out.

I put a new carburetor on my 350 rancher and the throttle cable is getting hot ,,keeps blowing fuse

Would think you have probably pinched a wire and if you removed the throttle cable from grip could be there but if you only worked in carb. Area check there.

I have a 2013 honda rancher 420 from 4x4. Changed the fuel pump and fuel injector. It'll on run when I give it gas. It won't idle. Help me out guys

There should be an idle adjustment possibly on the throttle assembly. try to find it. You could also try a Honda dealer and ask a service tech. They are usually helpful over the phone.

My Honda rancher 420 is idling bad. it will crank and idle good for a few seconds then it starts revving up and back down. then when I put it in gear it takes off without giving it any throttle.

Hey Bj,
Sounds like the throttle position sensor is going bad, take it to a professional and let them trouble shoot it.. it WILL be cheaper in the long run!!

This sounds like the throttle spindle sticking, or the cable sticking, if you remove the top cover and air filter, then push the throttle spindlefully back to the stop screw with your finger, then try again, the spindle may be a little gummed up.

How do you keep the throttle from sticking?

What I have done is to spay WD-40 between the throttle gas, feed several drops of 10W30 engine oil to lubricate the throttle cables and ensuring that the throttle is fairly lubricated around the carburator's throttle neck. Please give comment and rating if advise useful. Thanks

Installing throttle cable on Husqvarna 445 chainsaw

Try blocking the throttle arm on the carburetor in the wide-open position with a small stick, then deal with the trigger mechanism. In order to remove the cable from the carburetor, you need to remove the carburetor itself, then unhook the cable end at the throttle arm. Keep track of which fuel hose goes where if you do this. Hope this helps!

How do I replace the throttle cable of the Honda nxr 125 bros

Remove the seat, tank, and airbox. Follow throttle cable from the grip to the carbs seeing which way it is routed. Unscrew throttle housing and note which way the cable goes. Make sure when you replace the cable there is free play in the cable. Do not make the cable tight. Give slack in the throttle. Tighten. Twist throttle 10 times to make sure that there is no binding and a good snap! Chaz Moto DC
