Throttle Cable(s)


SKYGZR

Recommended Posts

The RS has almost 70,000 on it now, and noticing that it is getting a bit "slow" in the grip return when letting off. (Doesn't "snap back", slowly returns.)

 

Have tried some lube @ the top, yet hasn't really helped much. (It has the "lined" style cable.) I have checked, and even though it's a '96, it doesn't have a "bowden box"..just a cable that goes from the clutch side TB over to the throttle side...and the "choke"/fast idle cable is attached directly to the clutch side TB.

 

So there are (3) cables attached to the clutch side TB..main from grip, Fast Idle, and "cross over", with (1)-"cross over" connected to the throttle side TB.

 

Since it doesn't have the box, trying to determine what cables to order is confusing based on these diagrams:

 

With Box

 

NO Box ?

 

So seeking any tips/tricks that might assist...

There are really only 2 cables attached to the clutch side (throttle cable & choke cable). One a single cable runs from the twist grip to the L/H throttle cam then that SAME cable keeps on going over the other side TB.

 

You might try lubing the twist grip where it rides on the handle bar (they sometime drag there) & also check the end gap between the outer end of the twist grip & the bar end weight (they can also drag there).

So the main throttle cable is actually (1) cable, yet w/ (2) attachment points on the TB..correct?

 

I have tried "pulling back" the grip from the switch as well as the opposing end which has a throttle meister in leui of the standard bar end weight, and the TM is adjusted/working correctly.

 

Suppose I could try removing the grip assm from the bar and lubing the inside (non heated grips), yet it kind of "feels" like a cable issue...

Yes, the cable wraps around the L/H TB cam then continues on to R/H side.

Before ordering new cable, try to make the rubber cover on the R/H side handle, not to touch the brake reservoir or the vibration weight and see if that helps.

 

It is also not a bad idea changing the cable given that the bike has that mileage, anyway.
