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.

Throttle sticking


Make sure the throttle stop(the little star wheel under the right handlebar control) isn't tightened against the throttle. Also lube both the throttle and idle cables. If problem persists, either the cable is pinched near the steering head, or the cable is frayed inside and needs to be replaced. Good luck!

Throttle not snapping back to idle position on 1998 Harley road king classic. I have lube both cables and adjusted them, still won't snap back. Thanks for your help.


You need to take the entire throttle control assembly off the handlebars and disconnect the cables from the carburetor. Check each cable for free movement. If you have a frayed cable, you will never get it to work correctly so check the cables. Now when you go to put the assembly back together make sure you put some thin grease on the handlebar and inside the throttle sleeve before you slide it up on the handlebar. Put white lithium grease in the area where the cables connect to the throttle sleeve the bolt the two halves of the switch housing together. Slide the switch and throttle assembly all the way up on the handlebars and then back it off about an 1/8" or so. This insures that the handlebar is not rubbing on the inside of the end of the throttle grip.

Good Luck

Check the new grip doesnt push against the throttle switch assembly.
Check the cables move freely
Check the cables dont have any frayed ends

I need too change right side grip on my 2005 heritage softtail any diagram thax,s


I'm sorry but I can't send a diagram via this site. I have no idea where I can get a diagram either.

But, to replace the throttle grip on your Softail, you'll see the not only are you replacing but you're replacing the throttle sleeve as well. This actually makes it easier.

To replace the grip, first loosen the throttle and idle cables as loose as you can at the adjusters close to the throttle grip. Then remove the screws that hold the two halves of the throttle switch housings together. Carefully seperate the housing halves as much as the wires will allow.

You'll see the cables coming up and connecting to the throttle sleeve. Each cable will have a ball and a ferrell on it. Work both cables loose and slide the throttle sleeve off the handlebar.

Now, lubricate the inside of the new throttle sleeve, the cable area of the throttle sleeve and the handlebar with fresh white lithium grease. Slide the throttle sleeve up on the handlebar and work the cables back into the throttle sleeve. Be careful not to lose the ferrells. They must be in there for the throttle to work properly.

Once you get the cables installed into the sleeve, put the switch housings together and install the bolts. Before tighten the bolts slide the throttle up onto the handlebar until it stops. Then back if off about 1/8 to 1/4" or so. Tighten the bolts. Readjust the cables leaving just a bit of slack in the throttle cable.

With the engine off, twist the throttle to wide open throttle and let go of the throttle grip. The throttle should snap shut. If not, loosen the cables a bit or back the throttle grip a bit further off the handlebars. The throttle grip must work correctly or serious injury or death may result. This job must be done correctly. It's not difficult just make sure it's right.

Good luck
Steve

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.,,
