Hi Ron,

There are companies making tanks for your bike. One of the best places to look new is right here at the Thumpertalk store. For a used tank eBay is probably your best bet. Good luck and welcome from another noob to the boards.

As for the throttle here are the first things I would check:

1. Be sure the cables are free to move and not pinched.

2. Lube as needed - If this doesn't work the cables may need replaced.

3. Check the throttle tube for dirt and binding. The ends get beat up sometimes in a fall.

If you still have trouble you will need to thoroughly clean the carb. A good idea anyway especially if the bike has been sitting for awhile.

Good Luck.

Welcome to the forum. Throttle.....take the throttle assembly apart and clean it out, probably some crud collected in there, make sure the throttle tube is in good condition. Check the cable ends for fraying, lube the cables. Check the cable routing, could be some awkward bends somewhere. Keep us posted on your new ride.

Ok I have taken everything apart and all seems well.Here's what i've found...When the handlebars are straight it snaps closed as soon as i turn the handlebars it hangs where ever it may be.Does anyone have the correct routing for these cables?This would be awsome!
