How to adjust the motorcycle throttle cable?

The steps for motorcycle throttle cable adjustment are as follows. First, start the engine and check whether the throttle cable is loose, or the fuel is not smooth, or the idle range is large. If these conditions exist, adjust the clearance and tightness of the throttle handle, and then speed up the test drive.

During motorcycle throttle cable adjustment ,the nut should be under the handle. It is used to adjust the throttle clearance. When adjusting, turn the adjustment nut counterclockwise or clockwise to adjust the throttle clearance. Then check whether the acceleration is smooth and free of jams. If you feel that the throttle handle is heavy ,as if something is being pulled, it means that there is interference in the motorbike accelerator cable, and there will be a rustling sound when you pull it. This is mostly caused by the cable winding around the handle. At this time, use a screwdriver to loosen the cable fixing screws to see if the noise can be eliminated.

If the cable is damaged, there will be a "click" sound during operation. At this time, it is best to replace the motorbike accelerator cable with a new one.

Completely restore the throttle handle to its normal state, hold the adjusting nut, and pull the digging line outward by 2 to 3 mm, and then try to see if the clearance is appropriate. If the gap is too large, it should be re-adjusted. If it is impossible to adjust, such as when the motorcycle throttle cable is deformed or the length of use becomes longer, it cannot be adjusted or there is no change after adjustment, it should be replaced. If there is anything you can't do, you can adjust it according to the "User Manual" that comes with the car.

Key points for adjusting the cable gap: turn the adjusting nut clockwise to tighten the cable. When it is felt that the sound gap has returned to the state before the fault occurred, it is considered that the pulling force is appropriate.

Finally, fully restore the throttle handle to its normal state, loosen the lock nut (turn it counterclockwise), then turn the nut clockwise and counterclockwise to drive the cable to move up and down to maintain a gap of 1-2 mm, and fix it with the lock nut (Turn clockwise),Then the motorcycle throttle cable adjustment can be completed.
