My 96 suzuki quadrunner 250 and I thought my throttle cable was in a bind not in a bind idles fast when you turn right what is wrong


Possibly if moisture has got in and created rust then you have a problem. With the engine not running twist the throttle very slowly to full limit then let go the spring should snap the whole thing shut instantly. If this does not happen the cable is binding. Undo the cable at the twist grip end and get as much lube down it as possible a clamp type cable luber will help.

Motor surges at full throttle


The timing is not the problem if your bike is surging at top end. The timing is fixed on these models and it's not like the old days or like a car. Your problem can be one of many.
First: does the bike idle ok after it is hot?
Second: Have you changed the air filter to an after market type? Changing the filter to an after market filter will lean the motor out which will cause a "surge" at full throttle. You will need to possible jet the motor richer to compensate for the leaner filter design.
Third: Try rolling out og the throttle from full throttle by about 1/8th and see if the engine RPM's increase and the surge goes away, if so the motor is to lean.
Let me know the answers to these questions and I can help you resolve your problem.
Third: how long has it been since you have set the valves? a tight valve can cause many many problems including this one.

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.,,
