Thanks my dood! Dont worry, problems is my middle name.. Max Problems Pressure. Sling warned me about my throttle free play. I made a meme about it. Im never comfortable working on my bike broo, but i must make this happen. Plus, im back on my meds, and my Mom thinks I can do it.👍Sorry for the problems you're having. I'm not sure I'd recommend doing this if you're uncomfortable at all. Any problems with a sticking, or uneven throttle throw could really be dangerous.
Thanks bud. This is how i plan to attack it when the cable gets here, and im in a better place mentally. Until then i have been demoted back to biker kindergarten. Ive been riding my little nephews bmx bike, with no seat and no brakes. Bike life right? Its brutal. Hopefully, the install goes smooth and i can get back on Raven before my knees go out again.The throttle cables on the R3 are a pain to replace. I would know, I've changed throttle cables twice due to crash damage. Basic thing to know is this:
1) Remove the fairings on the tank and left side of the bike.
2) Remove the screws as per the 1st diagram provided by bennyrides. You should now see the throttle cable mounted to the throttle body.
3) Remove the throttle cable from the throttle tube on your handlebar
4) Undo the 2 5mm allen head screws on the throttle cable mounting plate holding it to the throttle body as shown in the 2nd diagram provided by bennyrides.
5) Unhook the throttle cable retainers from the throttle body cam
Installation is basically doing the same thing in the reverse order. Good Luck!
Answer:How we doing?...
Once you remove the two bolts that connect the throttle cable to the throttle body, you will have the slack to disconnect the cables from the throttle
bodiestube. They're attached just like any brake cable on bicycles and clutch cables on motorcycles are.
The throttle tube is inside the
throttle tube housing; remove the two screws attaching the two halves together, then remove the third screw securing the throttle cable bracket to the throttle tube housing.
Be sure you connect the accelerator and decelerator cables correctly. Pay attention to what you're doing and where the cables go before you just strip the throttle cable out. Actuate the throttle a few times if you need to and develop the sense of why it's connected how it is.
Take pictures - lots of pictures to reference in case you disconnect the throttle cable and don't know how it goes back on (especially for the throttle tube).
