Thumper riders Check your Throttle cables

     

Just FYI,

I recently had a over the berm experience at an MX race about 2 weeks ago. I thought that the reason was due to me being to tired to shut it down. But after doing a rejet last weekend I noticed the top cable "I believe it's the push cable" had a small fray were it comes out of the cable sheath. Well I tried to smooth it as best I could and after working the throttle a little noticed that the thing hangs up about 1/4 throttle. So that along with my unsteller riding prowess was the cause of the berm shot.

I do regular mait to the bike including adjustment and lube of cables. So no shots please. The bike is and 02 and I ride almost every weekend.

Just keep an eye on them if you have the 2 cable throttle set-up Honda and Yamaha

I've noticed that the sheath on one of my cables is starting to crack in two places- one near the carb and one near the throttle. Sounds like I'll be doing this before long too. Thanks for the tip Ranger

For one cable or both? I thought Motion Pro via Rocky Mountain sold both cables for about 30 bucks....
