Easiest way to install new throttle cables, Please

OK now that I've got the brake MYSTERY figured out. And thanks to all of you who replied. I am now changeing the throttle cables. I have looked at my disc and some of the threads here on the subject. Haven't found any thing that suggests how to get "r" done, any idea's on how to get the job done with the least amount of MISERY would be appreciated(ie.do the pull cable first, or best way to attach at handle bar end or engine end first. I already have the tank off and am ready to go. These are the Motion pro sets, ya get from Hal, if that factors in. Thanks again TIM

I just installed a set of motion contols (stainless) to my retro. I don't think you can do this job without removing the tank. There is not room to see and I have the hypercharger so if you are still stock and have not de-smoged you have even less room. Now is the time to do the desmog if you are going to do this. Both jobs can be done in not a lot of time. As for as which end to hook up first, I found that putting them on your throttle handle first the easiest. You don't have to remember which is which on the intake. Just rotate your grip and see which one wants to pull in. That is the one you mount on the top of the butterfly wheel and the return on the bottom. When you put the cables in the bracket, the return line goes in the bottom hole. These are not the best instructions, but I'm sure you get the idea. Bare has a good write-up on tank removal. Good luck.

Undo the bolt that holds the back of your tank down.....prop the tank up approx 3 to 4", thsi will give you some room to work. There are two adjustings bolts on the throttle linkage behind your air cleaner.....loosen those two bolts and this will give you some slack up front. Be careful not to break the plastic sleeve at your grip....its very costly
Just a suggestion for you, you really don't need a "push" cable as the VTX has a very strong return spring....so a "pull" will do the job.....just my .02

Thanks for the input riderD,and Night train. Got her all done it was tight but with patience and practice it finally happened.(Amazing what you can get done with a spare 4 hours) As I said I already had the tank off so the job went a little easier. Tim

Looks nice, doesn't it. It makes me want to spend another $450.00 fpr the brake and clutch lines. There really is no end in site.

Here is the connection at the throttle bodies, break this 10mm nut loose and the rest is easy.



I did a write up on changing switch housings, the basics of that should be able to help you here. Look for it on my site:

And FYI - Tapper did the write-up on tank removal, I just want to make sure credit is given where it is due!

Are you saying that there is no need to remove the neither air cleaner housing nor the throttle body in order to replace both the push and pull throttle cables?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this. Just had my throttle cable (pull) snap on me, so I find myself getting ready to install Barnett push and pull throttle cables.

I'm going to say...The "stock" airbox will need to be removed but not the throttle body.

I only pulled the tank and the airbox when I changed mine out to longer steel braided cables.

This is the link they referred to and there's a good chapter about the right-hand, throttle, side.
