I just put on the lever and noticed it lays right against the engine.....is the cable going to melt? The L shaped bend also swivels even after it is tightened down on the carb...is this normal? I probable could swivel the cable up over the top of the engine but this puts more of a bend in the cable........ most the pictures I see show the cable going straight in front of the engine.....this is not possible on mine....it worked fine on a test run down the road but I havent been riding yet . thanks in advance for any info / advice.........JT PS. Trout Fishing at Eagle lake (N. CA) is great right now....3-4 pounders on worms at 25 ft deep.
