The throttle cables are well lubed. I recall a few years back an article in an off road magazine where they converted the dual cable set-up to a single cable. Does anyone have any info or experience in this?

Try Thumper Racing. I had this setup on my '92 and '97 and it was awesome.

deano.....I took 1/2 a round out of the primary carb throttle spring, took the push cable completly off and lubricated the pull cable...Made a world of difference....

Thanks, CrackiN. I will try your setup. What did you use to seal the throttle housing after you took the return cable out? Did you buy a new throttle assembly?
