Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRCI Road king
You want some play in your throttle control. If you adjust the cables until you have no play, your throttle will quit automatically returning to the closed position. Not a safe thing since most people today are accustomed to the throttle doing that.
Now, you don't want too much play either. less than a 1/8 of a turn. Take the play out by adjusting the throttle cable first and the by adjusting the idle cable. The throttle cable is the front most cable where it enters the throttle twist grip.
Important, once you adjust the throttle cable, you must insure that it operates correctly. Twist the throttle to the wide open position, with the engine OFF of course, and release it. It must automatically return to the fully closed position. Failure to insure the proper operation of the throttle can lead to serious injury or death.
