I was wondering if you can run just one cable to the carb? I would like the throttle to turn a bit easier, like my two smoke. Any reason not to? 06 yz450. :ride:

I do not believe this will work. The system is designed for a 2 cable design. With a accel pump you need this type of system

DO NOT unhook or remove the second cable.

On a 2-stroke carb, the cable pulls the slide open and a spring closes it. On a 4-stroke carb, one cable pulls the slide open and the other pulls the slide shut. It is spring assisted, but necessary in order to assure that the throttle closes. The 4-stroke carb also has a special slide that has rollers to help remove any stiction. All of this is necessary due to the high vacuum created at the carb on a 4-stroke.

Then tell me why the YFZ450 only uses one cable with the same carb? I'm not arguing the fact. I'd just like to know.

I coudnt care less about quads either way, but this would be my guess:

the YFZ450 has a thumb-actuated throttle with the return spring built in which closes the throttle so there is no need for a second cable

The quad is electronically controlled with this part
5TG-8259A-00-00 .SWITCH, CARBURETOR
to assist it in running with single cable.
The bike does not have it.

Yeah, what wheel said, four strokes create more vacuum which suck's more on the slide and it can stick open. The second cable is there for your safety.

You can do it if you want, but do it at your own risk. You'll need a single cable throttle since your current one has no stop built into it, instead relying on the return cable for that.

Unless you have something significantly wrong with your throttle return cable, removing it won't reduce the twist effort in any noticeable way. I advise against it.

I rode my '00 WR400 for about 2 months without the second cable with absolutley no problems.

I did this only because the rebound cable was so freighed it didn't work properly and hung the idle really bad. I had drove 3 hours to ride that morning and wasn't gonna sit at the truck while my buddies rode. After riding all weekend I wasn't in any hurry to spend $50 on cables.

Would I remove it if it worked properly...no.
