Question about Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard Motorcycles
First remove the air filter cover, the air filter element, and the air filter backing plate so you can get to the carb end of the cables.
Then, adjust the cables so that you have as much slack as you can get in them.
Loosen the two bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder on and slide it towards the center of the handlebars. Take the two bolts out of the right handlebar switch half. Separate the switch halves carefully as there are wires in there. Work the cable out of the throttle sleeve, take the ferrel off the end, and pull the cable out of the lower switch housing. Sometimes this can be aggravating but spray some penetrating oil in there and keep working it. Once out, disconnect the cable at the carb end.
Reassembly is basically the reverse of the dis-assembly. When putting the switch housing back together, don't pinch any wires and don't slide the throttle assembly all the way up on the bars. Once you have the throttle assembly bolted together and the master cylinder repositioned against the front face of the switch housing, adjust the throttle cables. Not to tight, a bit of slack in each cable. The throttle should "snap" back when you release the throttle. If not, work with it until it does. Failure to properly adjust and insure proper throttle operation can cause the lose of control of the vehicle which could result in serious injury or death to the rider.
