I just spent the last hour or so trying to get some free play in the throttle cables I just put on. As of right now there is none. I tried doing what the manual said, but no success. It's confusing me.:thumbsup: I could probably figure it out myself after another hour, but I'd rather not.
I know some of you with more experience have some tips for me.

If the cables are installed right, and all the adjuster nuts are run in all the way, you should have way too much slack.
