mikeR1100R Posted April 13, 2007 Share Posted April 13, 2007 The Haynes manual states that throttle cable replacement should be done every 18,000 miles. Since I will have the tank off to do the fuel filter on my 98 R1100R with 23,000 miles, I thought I would replace the throttle cable as well, (also the battery}. My question is should the throttle cable actually be replaced that often? I don't have any isssues with throttle operation or problems with TB sync. Would it be prudent to just inspect and lube the cables? The cable distributor unit looks pretty complex with a number of moving parts. Does any part of that assembly need lubrication or will that eventually just attract dust and grime and gum it up? If I replace the throttle cable, would it not make sense to replace all four cables coming and going from the distributor unit? Also, does anyone have a good method of lubricating the cables? The method shown in the Haynes book looks very messy. Thanks, Mike Link to comment
