Broken Throttle Cable ?

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone else had their throttle cable snap

for no apparent reason?

I got my 00 426 in july and this weekend during first practice of a local MX race the return cable broke about 3 - 4 inches from the carb linkage.

I was on an up hill hard on the gas when i felt something strange, pulled over and sure enough the cable was broke.

I have lubed the cables on the bike consistantly every two weeks.

???????

Wierd!

This is a common problem. The cable chafes at the end of the the cable tube. Was it the bottom pull cable or top push cable?

Hey guys, I haven't checked into this myself, but I thought the cables came in a set, and are not available individually.

Check with Yamaha parts warehouse a.k.a. Tracey's in Pittsburg - someone I was talking to claims to have already received a replacement set, without delay.

I broke my original at the throttle in a crash. I must be lucky because NCY had it in stock, it was on my bike (426) in less than a week.
